An Ode to The Sandwich

Tracking Pixel

Sandwiches are my favorite.

I love a good lunchtime break {while little man naps away!} with a killer sandwich as the main event. It’s recently been fun to get creative in the sandwich department to see what Brooks will and won’t eat as I combine different tastes and textures to my favorite bread.

I recently partnered with Sara Lee® to share the love about their delightful breads and their tasty sandwich creations. I’ve always been a fan of Sara Lee® breads because they provide delicious taste and delightful texture with 45 calories per full-size slice. As a new mom, I’m not counting calories, but I am being very aware of what I am eating to make sure I keep that baby weight at bay! The Delightful breads are all heart-healthy and provide an excellent source of fiber in each serving (2 slices), with no artificial colors or flavors, and no high fructose corn syrup.


 I was totally in love with all the fun sandwich recipes on the Sara Lee® website, so I had to share my favorite -> The California Chicken Sandwich!

  • 2 slices of Sara Lee® Hearty & Delicious® Multi-Grain Bread
  • 1 cup cubed oven roasted breast of chicken
  • 3 slices baby swiss cheese
  • 2 stalks diced celery

  • 3 tbsp. spicy horseradish
  • 3 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. toasted walnuts

How To:

Mix together cubed chicken, celery, cranberries, walnuts, horseradish and mayonnaise. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spread chicken salad mixture on one slice of bread.  Top with cheese, field greens, and remaining bread slice.  Cut in half and serve.


Side Note: I also enjoy all the different Sara Lee® flavor options -> a new flavor Oatmeal joins the current line which includes 100% Whole Wheat (made with real honey), Healthy Multi-Grain and Wheat.
