At least once every two weeks we will enjoy sandwiches for dinner. They are so easy and quick to prepare. Having natural and organic ingredients are the keys to the perfect sandwich. What happy news for us when I heard that Oroweat, a leader of great tasting breads that are filled with simple and nutritious ingredients, is baking All Organic breads. We are all thankful that Oroweat supplied us with coupons to try all three varieties, information, and a $25 gift card to make some ultimate sandwiches. The opinions expressed in this post are my own and do not reflect the opinions of Oroweat.
There are three different Oroweat varieties of these USDA Certified Organic breads: Premium White; 100% Whole Wheat; and Grains and Seeds. I've checked, and all the ingredients are organic and that means Non-GMO! With each loaf, the bread is soft and delicious. On shelves everywhere, I am finding these great new breads from Oroweat.
With these new Oroweat Organic varieties, we were challenged to make some great tasting sandwiches. Now my husband, the head chef of our family, does not take a challenge lying down. He came up with three great sandwiches for each variety: one vegetarian friendly, one vegan friendly, and one for the meat lovers. Just a little warning, my husband was once a pro-chef, he never measures anything, he just knows how much is perfect.
On our meat lover's sandwich, we only use uncured lunch meats for our sandwiches as we do not want all those nitrates in our diet, and it's way more natural. With slices of chicken, turkey, ham, and beef, along with cheddar and Monterey jack cheese, then piled high with fresh organic lettuce, tomatoes, and onions, this sandwich is a feast unto itself. The Oroweat Organic 100% Whole Wheat Bread was really the finishing touch.
With this bread, my husband came up with a triple decker grilled triple cheese sandwich. This grilled cheese is lacto-ovo vegetarian friendly and is just oozes with cheese and grilled onions.
Three-By-Three Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe
Take a few slices of red onion and saute them until soft with olive oil.
Meanwhile, have slices of cheddar cheese, Monterey jack, and mozzarella cheese ready.
Melt a few tablespoons of butter and mix with a few tablespoons of olive oil. Take three slices of Organic Oroweat Premium White Bread. With a pastry brush, lightly brush the olive oil/butter mixture onto on side of two slices of bread. On the third slice of bread, lightly brush both sides with olive oil. Season all slices with garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper or any other seasonings you would like to taste.
On med/low to medium heat, place the first two slices buttered/olive oil side down. On one slice, put cheddar cheese. On the other slice, place Monterey jack and mozzarella cheese. You will be melting and cooking each one individually until the cheese is melted, so watch that the heat is not too high so that the bread does not burn. The last slice of bread that is buttered/olive oiled on both sides, grill each side until golden brown.
Once your cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown, it is time to assemble the sandwich. Take the cheddar side and put down on the plate and place the grilled onion on top, then place the two-sided grilled slice on top, after place the Monterey jack side on top.
The Oroweat Organic Grains and Seeds bread chock full of a variety of organic seeds: flax seeds, sunflower kernals, sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, and millet. We all love this bread, and is actually the family favorite out of the three new organic varieties that Oroweat has come out with. The Grains and Seeds variety made plain toast into great toast, and a plain sandwich into something seems like it came from a fancy bistro.
Here is my husband's sandwich masterpiece of the day, a Vegan Red and White Bean Salad Sandwich on Oroweat Organic Grains and Seeds Bread. He is truly a master at making vegetarian and vegan dishes. He never follows recipes, they all just come to him when the time comes. The Grains and Seeds completed this red and white bean sandwich perfectly and added just the right flavors.
