This Cane Rosso creation is no ordinary waffle. It is a savory, potatoey waffle — think part pierogi, part mashed potato pancake — stuffed with meatballs, cheese and tangy sauce.

When you crave brunch, what dish are you thinking of? Is it eggs Benedict with cayenne-speckled hollandaise and eggs poached just so? A pile of pancakes under a lava flow of maple syrup? An English breakfast so authentic that you begin to call soccer by its real name, football? Sure, OK, all of the preceding dishes have their merits. But are they sandwiches?

That is the question you should ask yourself when considering what to order at brunch. For sandwiches, when done right, can deliver a uniquely satisfying experience — one wherein each bite perfectly captures all of the flavors and textures of the dish.

It is because of the sandwich's supreme, satiating abilities that we compiled a list of the top five brunch sandwiches. While some of these may necessitate a bit of fork-and-knife work, they all satisfy the basic sandwich requirement of breadstuffs encompassing non-breadstuffs.

So in no particular order, we present: Sandwiches Among Sandwiches, Leaders of the Brunch-Carb Revolution.
