National Bread Month | Sandwich Recipes


NatlBreadMonthI love November. I love bread.

Not only is it the birthday of my first born, and Thanksgiving. November is also National Bread Month!

This year is the 250th mark of the sandwich. Really, people are keeping track of that?

My kids are ultra picky, but a sandwich is one option that we can all agree upon.

Bread is something that I’m drawn to. When we eat out and they bring bread to the table, I’m the first to dig in. I used to take those sweet rolls, tear them open, and then pull out the inside and roll them up into balls.

When it’s spaghetti night, I’m all over the garlic bread. I guess it’s safe to say that carbs are my weakness.

This recipe was created by a little inspiration of walking around the farmer’s market. Perfect for everyone in the family and it’s the best with fresh tomatoes. Sandwiches are the easiest and most versatile ways to make a healthy meal.

Here is the recipe for a Quick and Easy Grilled Cheese Pizza with Farm Fresh Tomatoes

One of my favorite ways to make a sandwich is with a grilled chicken patty, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, all on toasted bread. Bread is the most important ingredient in making a healthy and delicious sandwich; it is the foundation of a great meal any time of day.

America’s love affair with the sandwich dates back to England in 1762 when Sir John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, didn’t want to put his cards down in the midst of a marathon game of poker, so requested his meat be served to him between two slices of bread.

A fabulous new “food form” was born – and our passion for sandwiches continues to this day. With Americans consuming over a billion sandwiches a year – for breakfast, lunch and dinner – sandwiches may in fact be our most popular national dish.

To honor the sandwich and showcase its star ingredient – the bread – the Grain Foods Foundation has partnered with celebrity chef and sandwich aficionado Bryan Voltaggio to create four exclusive sandwich recipes.

How do you like to eat your sandwiches?

    I never thought about turning bread into a pizza, but I must say I too am a huge fan of the grilled chicken sandwich. I load it with lettuce and tomato and toeasted wheat bread is a must. Reply
