Why put pickles on your sandwich when the pickles can be the sandwich? Elsie’s, in Haddon Township, New Jersey (near Philadelphia), is replacing the bread on a sandwich with thick pickles.
The bread-free alternative isn’t just great for those trying to cut down on carbs—it also adds more pickles than any other sandwich can give you. At Elsie’s, you’ll get to build your own or choose a specialty sandwich to pile in between a split-down-the-middle kosher pickle. You’ll have your choice of meats and cheeses as well as toppings, including Sriracha mayo and spicy wasabi mayo.
If you prefer a thinner pickle, you can order roll-up sandwiches. Think of them like two-bite wraps. You can choose pickles or cucumbers to replace the bread. One order will get you six pieces, so it’s perfect for a quick lunch.
“So essentially, we’re a sandwich shop without the bread,” Katherine Cohen, Elsie’s co-owner, told Thrillist. “We have a family pickle recipe that we resurrected.”
Now, go be a hero and tell your favorite pickle-loving person about this. And maybe book a trip to Jersey.
