I LOVE going out for healthy-restaurant semi fast food sandwiches.    But they are just so expensive!   A few weeks ago I decided that I just needed to stop.

I started buying higher quality bread so I could  start making fancy sandwiches at home.    I have had a little obsession with Caesar Salad lately, so I decided that I would make a delicious Bacon-Avocado Caesar Salad Sandwich.

The fancy bread I used in my fancy sandwich?  Pepperidge Farm® has come out with a new line of bread called #HarvestBlends.  These new varieties are now available in grocery stores all across the Midwest!

I loved the taste of all three of this Pepperidge Farm Harvest Blends bread . I tend to like my specialty bread to taste nutty.  All three of these add a lot of depth to my ” fancy adult sandwiches” that I have been making at home

I used the Seeded grain bread for my sandwich.  All of the flavors are wonderful.  We really loved peanut butter toast on the ancient grain flavor.

This Bacon-Avocado Caesar Salad Sandwich really fit the bill.  I have been into adding lots of vegetables to my sandwiches lately, so why not just add a salad?   Plus, Who doesn’t love bacon and avocado?   I have made this sandwich several times.  Sometimes without the bacon.  Sometimes without the avocado.  It turns out wonderful every time.

I actually broiled parmesan cheese on this bread before building my sandwich.  The bread turned out just crispy enough.
