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.

A Quick History of a Classic Sandwich

March 8th, 2017

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?

Tweet: Get to know the sloppy joe just in time for #SloppyJoeDay via @klostermanbread http://bit.ly/2ghlNTeGet to know the sloppy joe just in time for #SloppyJoeDay via @klostermanbread http://bit.ly/2ghlNTe https://ctt.ec/1B33o

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.

Kick Start a Healthier Year with These Pantry Packing Hacks

January 4th, 2017

We all kick off the new year with fresh resolutions. One of the most common? To get a little healthier. This year, we want you to start your year off on a healthier foot!

Tweet: Start your year on the right foot with these healthy pantry packing tips via @klostermanbread http://bit.ly/2ghlNTeStart your year on the right foot with these healthy pantry packing tips via @klostermanbread http://bit.ly/2ghlNTe http://ctt.ec/5nye7

For us, trying to become healthier starts with what you eat. So grab your grocery list as we get ready to help you pack your pantry with healthy ingredients for delicious meals.

  • Canned and dried beans: beans are lean, full of fiber and inexpensive. Add herbs and oil to this versatile ingredient and you will have a delicious side. Or create a hearty vegetarian soup, stew or pasta by adding in this nutrient-rich ingredient.
  • Pantry stored produce: onions, garlic and shallots are a key to developing succulent flavors in your dishes. These produce items are best stored in a pantry, so go ahead and stock up on your next grocery trip!
  • Spices and dried herbs: using spices and dried herbs is a great way to add flavor to your recipes, without relying on fats or salt, and can give you an antioxidant boost!
  • Whole grains: we’ve heard it for years that whole grains are great for the body. By choosing hearty whole grains like quinoa, you can lower the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Our final pantry packing tip? Be sure to have a loaf of whole grain bread on hand. Here at Klosterman Bread, we have a selection of natural, whole wheat bakery products to choose from. From signature breads, buns and hoagies we have whole grain rich products that will keep you on track this year. Learn more about which bread you should reach for right over here.
