It’s not an SNL skit. It’s not a 30 Rock joke. It’s not just even a bad Twitter pun: Jon Hamm is making Hamm sandwiches. The Emmy Award-winning actor has teamed up with the excellent sandwich shop Ggiata Delicatessen on a sandwich bearing his name to benefit the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital.
The sandwich is a PB&J - just kidding. It’s thinly sliced ham with smoked provolone, heirloom tomatoes, pickled Fresno chilies, and aioli, served on charred ciabatta bread. For every sandwich sold, Hamm and Ggiata will donate a meal to the frontline workers at MLK Hospital in Compton.
Ggiata is a Pico-Union deli that opened earlier this year, gaining a ton of popularity for their takes on Italian-American classics like cold cut subs and chicken parm sandwiches.
