Sandwiches are a family favorite but the same ol’ same ol’ sandwich can get boring. Sure you can add different ingredients to the sandwich but it may still not be enough. But changing up the bread can make a huge difference in taste and that is why we are changing to Pepperidge Farm® Harvest Blends bread. There is a variety of breads to choose from in the  line such as, Ancient Grain, Sprouted Grain, and Seeded Grain.

With summer around the corner we tend to make more sandwiches as we lounge around the pool or go on a picnic. I decided to try out the Harvest Blend Ancient Grain bread and make a Reuben sandwich. I haven’t had a Reuben sandwich  in a long time and it sounded good on the Ancient bread. To make the Reuben sandwich, follow the instructions using the ingredients listed below. Enjoy!

If you didn’t want to toast the sandwich you can also grill it. Either way it is delicious!

I love the taste of all 3 Harvest Blend breads from Pepperidge Farm and can’t wait to experience some more sandwich creations with them. The Harvest Blend bread line is available in the Midwest at your local grocery store so be sure to check them out next time you are there.
