The Problem Instagram Has With Martha Stewart's Sandwich Idea

Sandwiches are one of the most versatile foods. They can be as basic as a PB&J on white bread or as fancy as a $250 lobster roll. There's an infinite number of variations and combinations — basically, anything you dream up can be turned into a sandwich. There's the marshmallow fluff sandwich when you're feeling nostalgic, the craving-satisfying bacon, egg, and cheese when you're hungover, and the iconic Philly cheesesteak when you're ordering Friday night takeout.

As for what makes a good sandwich, everyone has their own opinion, whether it's the type of bread, the specific ingredients inside, or the temperature at which you eat it (paninis, anyone?). Of course, professional chefs also have their preferences when it comes to sandwiches. Take Martha Stewart, for instance — or rather, take Martha Stewart's granddaughter. The beloved hostess recently shared a photo on Instagram revealing the new sandwich creation her granddaughter, Jude, invented. Here's what people on social media think about it.

Martha's sandwich is wildly expensive

It turns out that Martha isn't the only foodie in the Stewart clan. Her granddaughter also has a knack for creating delicious recipes, according to a recent Instagram post the domestic goddess shared. "Jude invented a new sandwich today for breakfast. Sour dough toast(@lmnopbakery ), generously buttered (@vermontcreamery unsalted), topped with very thinly sliced white truffle (@taste_of_truffles ) and sprinkled with sea salt," Martha explained in the caption, adding that both her daughter and son ate not one but three slices.

However, as tasty as the sandwich sounds and looks, many of Martha's followers were not impressed. The reason? It's a little extravagant for their liking. "I love a good $350 piece of toast," one person commented, while another chimed in, "Those sandwiches probably cost more than my monthly mortgage payment." One follower also brought up that most of us don't have extra truffles lying around, particularly white truffles, which can go for thousands of dollars per pound. Sorry, Martha.
