~ Incorporate Grains Into Your Diet with Bread ~
“The beloved food form was born in 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. With Americans now consuming over a billion sandwiches a year, sandwiches may in fact be our most popular national dish,” says Go with the Grain.
We eat just about every type of bread in our household. We love bread. At any given time you will see our refrigerator stocked with various breads. We love difference types for different meals! I’m pretty sure my kids could live off of bread and cheese. Grilled cheese is probably their favorite. My hubby and I like ours a little bit fancier.
My hubby and I like a little more in our sandwiches! Check out the sandwich we created below! We chose the Hearty White Pepperidge Farm Bread, spread on a little bit of butter on one side of each slice, and then added some CastleWood meats (turkey and salami) with Munster cheese and some Dijon mustard. We put the sandwich in our little Panini Press and the masterpiece sandwich was created! Yum! An Italian-style panini sandwich full of flavor in minutes! It was delicious!
