Autumn is fast approaching, which means it’s time for comforting soups, sandwiches and plenty of holiday entertaining. Read on to see how you can pair our new Artisan breads with everything from your weekly meal plan to special holiday menus!

1. The Beginnings of a Beautiful Artisan Sandwich

Caprese Ciabatta Sandwich

Forget plain old sandwich bread – be the envy of your co-workers (or classmates!) with artisan style sandwiches like an Easy Caprese Sandwich on our Olive Oil Ciabatta, a Shrimp Po Boy on our Demi Ciabatta, or a classic BLT on Roasted Garlic Ciabatta!

Easy Caprese Sandwich – slice olive oil ciabatta into two slices, then spread each slice with a tablespoon or two of pesto. Top one slice with tomatoes, mozzarella, and optional additional greens like arugula. Top with other slice of ciabatta and enjoy!

Shrimp Po Boy – Slice Demi Ciabatta in half. Spread each slice with a little mayo and/or remoulade sauce. Top one slice with shredded lettuce, sliced tomato and sauteed shrimp. Top with other slice of bread and dig in.

BLT – slice Roasted Garlic Ciabatta into two slices, and spread each slice with a little mayo. Top one slice with romaine lettuce, sliced tomato and applewood smoked bacon. Top with other slice of Ciabatta.
