A sandwich loaf is a stacked party entrée that looks like a cake. While rare today, the food was quite popular during the mid 20th century in the United States. To create a sandwich loaf, bread is cut horizontally and spread with layers of filling. Common fillings include egg salad, chicken salad, ham salad, tuna salad, and Cheez Whiz, but other fillings are possible, including peanut butter and jelly and mock egg salad made from tofu. In a simple sandwich loaf the fillings may all be the same, but in more complex creations each layer is different.
White bread is usually used to create a sandwich loaf, but whole wheat is also acceptable. Sometimes white and whole wheat are used in alternating layers to create a ribbon effect. After the layers are assembled the entire loaf is coated with whipped cream cheese, which may be tinted with food coloring. Common garnishes are olives, parsley, grapes, and carrot curls. The loaf is sliced like a cake and eaten with a fork.

“The result of civilization, at the Sandwich Islands and elsewhere, is found productive to the civilizers, destructive to the civilizees.
