- Best sandwich?
This would be a sausage and pepper sandwich at Seaside Boardwalk on the Jersey shore with tomato sauce and no onions and the reason why is the ingredients. It is served on the perfect bread to sink your teeth into and made from a sweet Italian sausage along with green and red fried peppers. It is actually more than that, as eating this will bring back floods of memories from my youth.
