Sandwiches are like edible works of art. And like art, everyone has their preference about the creation. Some sandwich enthusiasts would say how you layer individual ingredients has a big effect on the taste. Others are sticklers for nostalgia and comfort, using mom’s tried-and-true recipes. The possibilities are endless when it comes to making the perfect sandwich.
Kraft put forth a challenge for me to talk to you all about your Ultimate Sandwich. I will be the first to admit that I prefer my sandwiches toasted or grilled as opposed to just the uncooked bread, I always find bread no matter how fresh seems a little stale for my tastes. So for me my ultimate sandwich is a ham and cheese sandwich on toasted bread with some miracle whip, mustard and lettuce. I am getting rather bored with this sandwich though and think it is time to make a new one, I hope you will help me.
I am not a fan of tomato but I do love a bruschetta style bread and Kraft shared their Turkey Bruschetta Panini with me in the challenge to find the perfect sandwich and it looks so good I am considering running out to get the ingredients to make one of these for me. I do not have a panini press right now but thankfully Kraft has thought of people like me and includes in their tips a way to make this sandwich without one.

So while I do intend on trying the above recipe, I will chop the tomato to make it more like the bruschetta I am used to I am still on my ultimate sandwich search because I am so picky that while it looks delicious it may not be for me. Here is where I want you all to help me with my sandwich search. After entering the giveaway please feel free to go and share your recipe on the Kraft facebook fanpage, I will also be sharing some of my favorite ones I see here on that page.
