No matter how old you are, or how long its been since you were going back to school, or how recently you faced the belly-nerves of having to find a seat in a strange cafeteria, you will remember this: the comfort of school lunch, packed by your hands or those of someone who loves you, waiting for you in the middle of a day punctuated by strangeness (pop quizzes, stepping in gum, peers unwittingly cruel by way of hormones).

If you're in need of a comforting lunch, you'll find it in sandwiches. (Don't we all return, in times of upset, to the PB&J?) Here are 17 sandwiches to run with, whether or not you're headed to school:
