    Looked all around. chances are this sandwich goes be a less regional name then what you provided. Could you spell out the contents?

    Ps. Is it related to this patented sandwich maker device
    bearpaw sandwich maker

    I'm not entirely sure myself. I think it's sausages, or maybe de-boned spare rib, arranged in a bun so that they stick out a bit and look like short stubby fingers and the whole thing looks like a bear paw. Hence the name.

    EDIT:
    I'm not sure, I can't figure out what the hell the thing does. [​IMG]

    Funny thing, the guy who applied for the patent is my compatriot, and lives just a few miles from my place [​IMG]

    But before you suggest it, the bear paw isn't a Croatian-specific dish [​IMG]

    BearPaw Burger?

    Doesn't look like ribs and they say the bearpaw part is because of impressive size...but maybe?

    Ps. Hehe well I tried! Gave up my search now tho. Too..Hungry..to...continue..

    I don't think that's it. Maybe it's sausages after all. (And yes, it's supposed to be huge.)

    I've heard it mentioned in many English-speaking media so I'm surprised it's such an obscure sandwich [​IMG]

    I mean, if nothing else, someone could have invented it after all that talk of it around.

    Anyway, thanks, PBC [​IMG]

    EDIT:

    There's some sort of sweet pastry called a "bear claw". Man, the things I learn when I'm on the wrong track. And now I want cake. [​IMG]

    How about a Dutch Bear Claw sandwich?

    The thing that I would consider "common" where I come from would be a pastry / danish called a bear claw.

    BTW, I think in general you'll see more results from bear claw than you will with bear paw. I wouldn't consider bear paw to really be a part of the American-English vernacular anyway.

    I know there's a delicacy in China where bear paw is actually a dish. Served with greens and lots of other stuff too. Relatives told me it's banned in China but I saw it in a magazine there.

    mmmm... Firehouse makes some good subs.

    [​IMG]

    Edit: I think I am extremely attracted to Firehouse because I used to get free subs, being that I knew the founder, but now I think they are absolutely better than Subway, Quizno's, and Larry's Giant Subs. Except Subway's my favorite now because of the $5 for a footlong deal they have.

    Subway became my favourite when they had a mutual promotion deal with a local cinema chain. If you brought a ticket stub from the cinema, and bought a drink (coffee included), you got half a footlong (sandwich [​IMG] ) free. Meaning, you could get a footlong (and two coffees) for $2. And a friend of mine was working at that cinema at the time, so we got all the ticket stubs we could eat.


    I gained at least four pounds that way [​IMG]
