Claims
What is claimed is:
1. A sandwich, comprising:

a) a bread bun having a length and a substantially continuous wall forming a unitary, integral shell and a cavity in the bread bun and extending substantially the length of the bun; said bread bun includes an exterior crust and an opening through the crust into the cavity; and
b) a plurality of layers of sandwich fixings, disposed in the cavity said layers of sandwich fixings are disposed in separate and arcuate layers in said cavity; and said layers of sandwich fixings inserted into the cavity of the bread bun by:
1) placing the sandwich fixings as a plurality of separate layers onto a carrier;
2) rolling said carrier into a cylindrical tubular sleeve with the separate layers of sandwich fixings therein;
3) inserting the carrier with the separate layers of sandwich fixings therein through said opening into the cavity of the bread bun; and
4) withdrawing the carrier from the cavity of the bread bun through said opening while preventing the sandwich fixings from exiting the cavity and thereby forming separate and arcuate layers of sandwich fixings in said cavity of the bread bun.
2. A sandwich in accordance with claim 1,

wherein the cavity is formed by drilling through the crust and into the bread bun with an elongated, cylindrical drill bit without creating an interior crust.
3. A sandwich in accordance with claim 1, wherein the sandwich fixings are inserted into the bread bun by:

1) placing the sandwich fixings as separate layers onto a flexible sheet;
2) rolling the flexible sheet into a sleeve with the separate layers of sandwich fixings therein;
3) inserting the flexible sheet with the separate layers of sandwich fixings therein through the opening and into the cavity of the bread bun; and
4) withdrawing the sleeve from the cavity of the bread bun through the opening while preventing the sandwich fixings from exiting the cavity.
4. A sandwich in accordance with claim 1, wherein the sandwich fixings include sliced meat, sliced cheese, a vegetable or fruit, and condiments, inserted into the cavity by:

a) stacking all the sandwich fixings in separate layers on the flexible sheet; and
b) rolling the sheet to form the separate layers into separate arcuate layers by rolling the sheet into sleeve.
5. A sandwich, comprising:

a) a pre-baked bread bun having a length, a substantially continuous wall forming a unitary, integral shell, an exterior crust, a cavity in the bread bun without an interior crust and extending substantially the length of the bun, and an opening in the exterior crust extending to the cavity; and
b) a plurality of separate layers of sandwich fixings, disposed in the cavity of the bread bun and said layers are arranged in separate arcuate layers.
6. A sandwich in accordance with claim 1, wherein the cavity in the bread bun has a substantially circular shape, and wherein the separate arcuate layers of the sandwich fixings conform to the substantially circular shape of the cavity of the bread bun.

7. A sandwich in accordance with claim 1, wherein the separate layers of sandwich fixings have a layered configuration in the cavity of the bread bun that is substantially the same as a layered configuration prior to insertion into the cavity of the bread bun.

8. A sandwich in accordance with claim 1, wherein the arcuate layers of the sandwich fixings include:

an arcuate layer of sliced meat;
an arcuate layer of sliced cheese; and
an arcuate layer of sliced vegetable or fruit.
9. A sandwich in accordance with claim 5, wherein the cavity in the bread bun has a substantially circular shape, and wherein the separate arcuate layers of the sandwich fixings conform to the substantially circular shape of the cavity of the bread bun.

10. A sandwich in accordance with claim 5, wherein the separate layers of sandwich fixings have a layered configuration in the cavity of the bread bun that is substantially the same as a layered configuration prior to insertion into the cavity of the bread bun.

11. A sandwich in accordance with claim 5, wherein the arcuate layers of the sandwich fixings include:

an arcuate layer of sliced meat;
an arcuate layer of sliced cheese; and
an arcuate layer of sliced vegetable or fruit.
12. A sandwich, comprising:

a) a pre-baked bread bun having a length, a substantially continuous wall forming a unitary, integral shell, an exterior crust, a cavity in the bread bun without an interior crust and extending substantially the length of the bun, and an opening in the exterior crust extending to the cavity; and
b) a plurality of separate layers of sandwich fixings, disposed the cavity of the bread bun, the separate layers of sandwich fixings having a layered configuration in the cavity of the bread bun and a layered configuration prior to insertion into the cavity of the bread bun that are substantially the same.
13. A sandwich in accordance with claim 12, wherein the cavity in the bread bun has a substantially circular shape, and wherein the separate layers of sandwich fixings are disposed in arcuate layers that conform to the substantially circular shape of the cavity of the bread bun.

14. A sandwich, comprising:

a) a pre-baked bread bun, having a length, a substantially continuous wall forming a unitary, integral shell, an exterior crust, a cavity in the bread bun without an interior crust and extending substantially the length of the bun and with a substantially circular cross-sectional shape and an opening in the exterior crust extending to the cavity and;
b) a plurality of separate layers of sandwich fixings, disposed in the cavity of the bread bun, the layers being oriented in arcuate layers that conform to the substantially circular cross-sectional shape of the cavity of the bread bun, the separate arcuate layers of sandwich fixing having substantially a same separate arcuate layered configuration prior to insertion into the cavity of the bread bun.
15. A sandwich in accordance with claim 14, wherein the separate arcuate layers of the sandwich fixings include:

an arcuate layer of sliced meat;
an arcuate layer of sliced cheese; and
an arcuate layer of sliced vegetable or fruit.
16. A sandwich in accordance with claim 1, wherein the separate arcuate layers are oriented to match the cavity.

17. A sandwich in accordance with claim 5, wherein the separate arcuate layers are oriented to match the cavity.

18. A sandwich in accordance with claim 12, wherein the layered configuration of the sandwich fixings is substantially arcuate and oriented to match the cavity.
