The type of bread and quality of bread you use for sandwiches is important.

Be Sure to buy or make bread that is made with unbleached flour.
You would no more eat vegetables if they were washed in bleach, would you?

Try this Sandwich Taste Test:

Take 3 or more different types of breads and use the same sandwich filling on each type of bread.

Try Making a Sandwich using Store Brand White bread, with bleached flour,
the cheapest you can find-usually $1 to $1.50 a loaf.

Make a sandwich with whole grain wheat bread, unbleached flour.

Make a sandwich with Whole Grain Potato Bread, Unbleached

Make a sandwich with Canadian Brown Bread, unbleached flour.

You get the idea?

One thing I noticed
Peanut butter and jelly tasted best on white bread made with bleached flour.

See if you feel the same way.

Toasted bread makes a big difference on the taste of the sandwich, too!

Super Sandwiches to the Rescue

The ABC Club Sandwich Recipe

Let Kids Make their Own Sandwich

Pack lunchmeat, bread, lettuce and condiments in separate containers-kids love when they can build their own sandwich.

Say Goodbye to Soggy

Pack lettuce and tomatoes in a separate container so bread won't become soggy by lunchtime.

Think Outside the Bread

Cut a variety of deli meat flavors into small squares and pack with crackers. It's a healthy (and less expensive) take on that packaged grocery lunch.

The New Shape of Fun

Remove crusts from bread and use cookie cutters to cut out different shaped sandwich every day.

Choose Variety for the Whole Family

Try a variety of deli meat flavors to keep things interesting. An economical way to do that is with the Hillshire Farm Family Size Lunchmeat Tubs, which offer twice as much quality lunchmeat. That allows you to make eight sandwiches per package. The containers are double sealed for freshness to ensure the quality lunchmeat - made with no by-products or artificial flavors - makes only the tastiest sandwiches for your family! 

Save the kids from boring sandwiches - with a little creativity, a super lunch can come to the rescue.
