Fall is in full swing and we couldn’t be more excited. The season brings comfy clothes (hello, #sweaterweather), fun outdoor activities and best of all, delicious ingredients. We’re talking apples, maple syrup, Cheddar cheese, sweet potatoes…the list can go on for days so we will stop here. It’s on that note that we’ve come up with eight tasty sandwich recipes that are great for both parents and kids. The best part? They’re all made with Sara Lee® Artesano™ Potato Bakery Bread that’s sliced thick and has a soft and fluffy texture that’s an absolute must for that ideal sandwich bite.
For the Grown-Ups
Take the Classics from Good to Gourmet
Roasted Sweet Potato and Bacon Open-Faced Sandwich with Herbed Ricotta
When you’re craving a little something extra for lunch, skip the (soggy) salad and opt for this open-faced sandwich instead. It features roasted sweet potatoes, crispy bacon, butterhead lettuce and homemade herbed ricotta cheese on a slice of deliciously toasted Sara Lee® Artesano™ Potato Bakery Bread. Sad desk lunch? We think not.
Fall Turkey Club
What’s better than a turkey club? A fall turkey club. Yes, that means cranberries are involved. Enjoy bacon, roast turkey, sautéed kale and a cranberry-mayo spread between toasted slices of Sara Lee® Artesano™ Potato Bakery Bread.
Caramelized Onion and Pear Grilled Cheese
There are a handful of food combinations that make our tastebuds dance and caramelized onions and pears is one of them. It’s slightly sweet, a little savory and downright delicious. For this upscale grilled cheese, layer caramelized onions, fresh pears and Gruyère cheese between two slices of Sara Lee® Artesano™ Potato Bakery Bread and cook in a skillet until its melted to gooey perfection.
Brussels Sprout Slaw Sandwich
The beauty of this sandy is that it can be eaten the classic way or open-faced. We’re personally in the classic camp because that means we get to have double the Sara Lee® Artesano™ Potato Bakery Bread. Simply toss together shaved Brussels sprouts and cranberries (or cherries) with mayo, vinegar and dill and add on top of the bread. We highly recommending toasting the bread for some extra crunch.
