Spring. It’s a time for enjoying the outdoors, heading to the ballpark and breaking out that grill! Whether it’s charcoal or gas, take off that cover and light it up, because it’s National BBQ Month and it’s time to get grilling!
For us, there’s no better way to celebrate this tasty month, than by grilling up some hotdogs and enjoying an American past time… watching baseball. We’ve cooked up some of our favorite dog toppings to enjoy while grilling out on game day.
Cincinnati Reds: In honor of the home team, there’s only one choice when it comes to dog toppings… Cincy style chili! As soon as your hotdog is off the grill, pop it in a Klosterman Hot Dog Bun, top it with a spoonful of chili and sprinkle on cheddar cheese and diced onion. This is the perfect dog to cheer on those Reds!
Cleveland Indians: While watching the Windians, you should enjoy a game winning dog. Place grilled smoked kielbasa in a Klosterman Hot Dog Bun and top it with French fries, coleslaw and BBQ sauce for a classic Cleveland Polish Boy.
Chicago Cubs: If you’re a fan of the defending World Series Champs, go for a classic Chi-town style dog. Serve your grilled dog on a Klosterman Poppy Seed Hot Dog Bun and top it with yellow mustard, sweet pickle relish, onion, tomato wedges, pickle spears, sport peppers and a dash of celery salt.
While you may not be able to cheer on your team from their stadiums, these hot dogs will make you feel like you’re behind the batter’s box. For more tasty ways to celebrate National BBQ Month, visit our Get Your Grill On Pinterest Board.
For 125 years, our customers have been incredibly supportive and loyal to our bread. To say “thank you” we want to give back to the communities who have given so much to us. If you have a fundraiser that you would like Klosterman to sponsor, let us know! Please visit our Grains of Giving website and submit your request.
This month, we want to reflect on an organization we not only respect but also admire. The Freestore Foodbank is the largest foodbank in Cincinnati and has been committed to assisting low income families across the tristate area.
We believe that growing our community begins with making sure our children are receiving the nutrition they need. That’s why we have been happy to support the Freestore Foodbank by donating a variety of our wholesome products.
In addition to weekly donations, we have had the privilege to participate in their scholarship fundraising programs as well as their outreach events.
We would like to thank the Freestore Foodbank for all they do for the community and allowing us to play a role in giving back. For more information on the Freestore Foodbank and how you can get involved, visit their website.
Now when most think of burgers, a thick, juicy ground beef patty comes to mind. And while we love a meaty burger straight off the grill, we also can appreciate the more unique burger varieties.
This National Hamburger Month, we’re skipping the meat and going for a veggie recipe that can’t be beat!
- 4 large Portobello mushrooms
- 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. chopped rosemary
- 1 ½ tsp. steak seasoning
- Klosterman Hamburger Buns
Whisk vinegar, soy sauce, rosemary and steak seasoning in a large bowl until well combined. Place the mushroom caps in the bowl and evenly coat with sauce. Marinate at room temperature for 20-30 minutes, flipping the mushrooms occasionally.
Once the grill is hot, brush the grate or spray the grill pan with oil. Place mushrooms on the grill and cook for 5-7 minutes. Baste the mushrooms frequently with the marinade. Add preferred cheese during the last minute of cooking. While cheese is melting, grill your Klosterman Hamburger Buns until toasted.
And now for the fun part … Toppings! Go traditional with the classic lettuce and tomato combo. Or whip up a garlic aioli and top your burger with sliced avocado.

April is not only National Grilled Cheese Month but also National BLT Month! And you know what that means … We’re celebrating both food holidays with one seriously delicious sandwich! Click on the image above to see a trick or two to making a tasty Grilled Cheese BLT!
We’re combining these classic simple recipes to create one sandwich that is anything but ordinary!
Grilled Cheese BLT:
3 slices of bacon
2 tbsp. butter
2 slices of Klosterman Organic Wheat Bread
2 slices of cheddar cheese
A handful of romaine lettuce

Stuffed French Toast
- Spread cream cheese and your choice of jam between two slices of Klosterman White Bread.

It’s easy to get caught up in the hussle and bussle of your day and skip out on a midday meal. However, we want to help you make more time for enjoying your lunch with a few simple make ahead meals.
Our go-to easy lunch is always a salad sandwich. Whether it’s chicken, tuna or egg, salad sandwiches are a great way to enjoy a filling lunch.
Chicken Salad: The next time you’re preparing chicken for dinner, save your leftovers and use it in your chicken salad. Make this meal in advance and add in your favorite toppings such as grapes, celery and sweet pickles. Compliment this sandwich by using Klosterman Light Rye bread.
Chickpea “Tuna” Salad: Chickpea salad is a great vegetarian alternative to tuna salad. Utilize the same ingredients you would use in a traditional tuna sandwich, but mash them with chickpeas (just be sure not to over process!). Enjoy this faux tuna salad with Klosterman Sandwich Bohemian Rye bread.
Egg Salad: Add some protein to your lunch with a creamy egg salad sandwich. Combine boiled eggs with mayonnaise, spices and herbs for a tasty and easy lunch. This classic sandwich is the perfect match for Klosterman Classic White bread.

Sloppy Joe day is approaching, and that means it’s time to pile our buns high with the delicious ground beef mixture. But have you ever wondered how the Sloppy Joe became such a classic simple sandwich?
According to an article from Blue Apron, some believe the Sloppy Joe originated from the Midwestern staple, the loose meat sandwich. In the 19th century, ground beef rose to popularity because it was both a nourishing and inexpensive option.
It was common to add fillers such as bread crumbs, ketchup or tomato paste to the meat to stretch it. This simple sandwich has since evolved into the modern day Sloppy Joe.
Sloppy Joes are seen in cafeterias and upscale restaurants alike. Whether you prefer a traditional joe or something more gourmet, the Sloppy Joe is the perfect sandwich to put your own unique spin on.
