From July 23, 2014 to August 22, 2014, sandwich lovers can submit up to two recipes, using Arnold®, Oroweat® & Brownberry® Whole Grain Sliced Breads or Arnold®, Oroweat® & Brownberry® Breads Sandwich Thins® Rolls varieties, in each of the following sandwich categories:

  • Creative Classic: nutritious spins on sandwich creations that have stood the test of time such as grandma's club sandwich, a BLT or another old-time favorite.
  • Stealthily Simple: sometimes, less is more. These sandwiches pack in flavor with just five or fewer ingredients.
  • Fueling Good: these energizing sandwiches should incorporate ingredients filled with protein and healthful fats, like eggs and nut butters, to leave you feeling like Superman or Wonder Woman.
  • Meatless Marvel: sandwiches that contain no meats and can cure your hunger needs with plant proteins such as soy, tofu and hummus along with some of your favorite veggies, fruits, nuts or cheeses.

All Arnold®, Oroweat® & Brownberry® Breads are packed with whole grains, are cholesterol free and contain no high fructose corn syrup, making them a great starting point when creating a better-for-you sandwich. In fact, eating one sandwich made with two slices of Arnold® Bread fulfills at least two servings of whole grains.
