What is the “2016 America’s Better Sandwich” Contest?

The sandwich architect whose filling matches the goodness of Arnold® Bread will win a grand prize of $25,000. Before entering an original sandwich, entrants should make sure their recipes include any of the Arnold® Sliced Breads, including any of the Arnold® Sandwich Thins® Rolls varieties.

This year’s contest includes five (5) exciting sandwich categories including:

“Open-Faced Artistry” (sandwiches are works of art for the world to see, and these snacks and meals should announce their nutritious ingredients—like bright beets or tasty tuna— sans second slice)

“Breakfast in Bread” (these sandwiches, featuring nutrient rich breakfast favorites like eggs and yogurt, invoke images of cozy mornings in bed or boisterous brunches with friends)

“Creative Classics” (nutritious spins on sandwich creations that have stood the test of time, such as grandma’s club sandwich, BLT or other old-time favorites)

“Fueling Good” (these sandwiches should incorporate ingredients that help boost your energy such as healthful fats, protein, fiber and iron)

“State Favorites” (whether it’s a well-known sandwich in the state you reside, or a must-have local dish that can transition into a sandwich, celebrate your state pride by re-creating these state favorites with better-for-you ingredients)

The recipe in each sandwich category with the highest score will receive a $5,000 category prize

Also, for each valid entry submission during the entry period and vote received during the online voting phase of the “2016 America’s Better Sandwich” contest, Arnold® bread will donate one (1) loaf of bread (up to 100,000 loaves) to Feeding America.

To add to the fun of this contest that hopefully all my readers will participate in, I was asked to share one of our family favorite sandwich creations. I would like to introduce you to what I like to call the “Hot Roast Beef Southern Sandwich”.Hot Roast Beef Souther Sandwich

Hot Roast Beef Southern Sandwich?

First off, you’ll need this list of ingredients:ingredients

Arnold® Sourdough Bread
1 Bell Pepper
1 Sweet Onion
1 Pack of Mushrooms
Roast Beef (store bought or what you have prepared at home)
Baby Swiss Cheese
Horseradish Sauce (to taste)
Mayo (for toasting the bread)

First off, slice the onions & bell peppers and sautee.  Once onions and peppers are almost ready, add the mushrooms.ingredients2

Meanwhile, heat up the roast beef in a separate pan. Once roast beef has been warmed, and veggies are cooked to your liking it’s time to assemble the sandwich.

First off, take the Arnold® Sourdough bread and add horseradish sauce to taste. We love horseradish, so for the most part I don’t measure this, I do put it on both slices of bread.ingredients3

After horseradish sauce has been added, I then add the roast beef, veggies and end with 2 slices of Baby Swiss Cheese.


Put a thin layer of mayo on both sides of the bread ingredients5and toast it until lightly browned and cheese is melted.ingredient7

That’s it.  It’s now ready to enjoy!

    I’ve been wanting to try the mayo instead of butter spread.

    1. My husband has always preferred it. I admit that I didn’t try it until last year. We went camping and the kiddos wanted toast on the grill. Guess what? I didn’t have butter but I had mayo and it worked perfectly for that too.
