Four different varieties of sandwiches made for a picnic, cocktail party or outdoor barbecue bash.  Each recipe starts with the same bread and uses simple, everyday ingredients such as fresh veggies, deli meat and Sargento® Sliced Cheese.  Be sure to serve a Turkey Club, Cheddar BLT, Turkey Cheddar Apple or Chicken Salad Sandwich for any summer sandwich occasion.

Sandwiches are a meal I turn to when I’m hungry.  It’s something I make numerous times a week and always seems to be the main food served for all those family memories by the lake house.  It’s the food we package up to bring to the docks and enjoy a picnic in the sand.

 It’s the food we bring on summer boating trips and long car rides to the cabin.  It’s the food we serve next to burgers at all our family barbecues.

Picnic Sandwiches

Each sandwich is individually packed with fresh vegetables, lettuce and deli meat that pairs beautifully with pre-sliced and ready to use Sargento® Sliced Cheese from Kroger.

The basics of sandwiches are pretty simple; bread, meat and cheese.  Add in addition fillings and there are just so many possibilities!  Whether it’s a variety of sandwiches, a juicy grilled burger or a wrap with all the fixings, the possibilities are endless when pairing it with Sargento® Sliced Cheese.

4 Sandwich Recipes

We love to host backyard barbecues and picnics and we always have Sargento® Sliced Cheese on hand because it’s made from real, natural cheese.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to sandwiches.  Start with the basics.  Use a variety of different grain breads to pair with protein.  Experiment with fruit and vegetables combinations.  Add different sauces and condiment spreads to the list.  Top it with a variety of different flavored cheese.

Stocking the cart with essentials will allow for a more convenient get together of hot paninis, cold sandwiches and grilled food.

Cocktail Sandwiches

Think back to those childhood sandwich recipes mom used to make for picnics.  I love to adapt those recipes and try new flavors.

    Oh how clever! These look so delicious and portable, perfect fare for a picnic. Though I don’t eat meat, I would definitely make a meatless version of the apple cheddar sandwich – it’s a classic combo!

    The Cheddar BLT sounds awesome. I love avocado on my sandwiches. These look amazing and some would be awesome as a panini with melted cheese.

    I’m a weirdo and don’t really like sandwiches, so I just do PB&J for me. The rest of my family is normal, though ;). They favor ham & cheese.

    I prefer sandwiches in the summer, they’re easy to make and you don’t have to heat up stoves or ovens to make them! It’s really nice to have sliced cheese like this, ready to use, no hassle and no fuss! Love it!
