Sara Lee Artesano Bread for #NationalGrilledCheeseDay and Recipes 

12 Apr

April is finally here and the trees are blooming. It is also known that April showers bring May flowers . Do you know what else April brings? It brings lots of grilled cheese sandwiches. April is National Grilled Cheese Month. 

I grew up on lots of grilled cheese sandwiches and my kids love them just as much as I do. There’s so many varieties of cheese to choose from and that goes for the bread as well. But for me I am very selective. I’ll try all types of cheeses but I love bread that can make my sandwich taste great and hold all that cheese that I pile on. 

Sara Lee has an amazing line of breads but their new line of Artesano bread goes above and beyond delicious. Sara Lee Artesano  Bread in stores now. Sliced thick with a mouthwatering soft texture and ringed with a golden crust, Sara Lee Artesano Bread has an Italian flavor profile with rich flavor and distinctly creamy character. The homemade taste is without artificial flavors, colors or high fructose corn syrup. It is an ideal substitute for any bakery-style bread in a favorite sandwich, or the perfect primary ingredient in recipes like paninis, French toast, bread pudding, strata and grilled cheese. Artesano has an average price of $2.99. 

 Below are some tips and techniques to hone your sandwich craft – essentially, the three “Bs” of the perfect grilled cheese:

Base — Like most iconic sandwich makers across the country would say, the bread you choose will make or break your masterpiece. Sara Lee’s new Artesano style bread is the perfect canvas for your grilled cheese creation. The hearty Italian slices will hold strong under the weight of the gooey cheese, but won’t overpower your fillings. It also crisps nicely on the outside, while the inside remains soft and fluffy for when you dig in.

Butter — If you’ve already committed to indulging in directly on the outside of the bread, rather than melting it in the pan first. This allows every corner of your Artesano bread to be coated, allowing for an even, golden sear edge- to-edge.

Blend — What you put inside your grilled cheese matters, and not all cheeses are created equal. Are you looking for a spicy, savory blend? Or how about a sweet and tangy? Whatever the combo, remember your cheese and other fillings need to play together nicely in the sandbox. Pick ingredients that pair well for that perfect balance on your palate. 

 I am so glad Sara Lee came out with this bread. I love eating it right out of the bag. It makes all of my sandwiches taste so good. I was asked to make grilled cheese sandwiches with this wonderful bread and you know I couldn’t turn down that offer. April 12, 2016 is National Grilled Cheese Day so I bring you 6 sandwiches for you to try or just drool over as you look at the pictures. I’m showing you the before, during and after. I enjoyed making these and can’t wait to come up with more recipes.
