There’s nothing better than a great sandwich; with some amazing artisan bread and the right ingredients, a sandwich can go from ordinary to extraordinary. Amazing artisan breads are something that ACE Bakery knows very, very well and right now ACE Bakery wants to know how you can turn any one of their breads into an incredible sandwich in the Canada’s Best Sandwich Contest!
One winner will be chosen from four different regions across Canada to receive $1000 for themselves and $1000 for their favourite charity. The winners will then compete in an ultimate sandwich-making event for the grand prize of $5000 cash and $5000 for their favourite charity! I received a basket of ACE Bakery treats to help inspire me to make my own creation and as soon as I saw the jar of ACE Bakery Organic Honey, I got inspired and came up with the Sweet and Tangy Avocado Sandwich.
I started by brushing two pieces of bread with olive oil and toasting them under a broiler until they were slightly golden on both sides. I think that the Honey Whole Wheat Oval from ACE Bakery would be the best choice for this sandwich but this time I used slices from a Rustic Italian Oval loaf. Then I spread one slice of bread with the ACE Bakery Organic Honey. I layered aged cheddar cheese, avocado and tomato on the bread and then added salt, pepper and a hearty drizzle of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. A piece of lettuce and the final slice of bread completed my creation!
I thought the idea of using honey on a savoury sandwich would create an interesting taste when paired with the balsamic vinegar and I loved the result! The sweet honey and tangy vinegar blended so nicely and added great flavour to the veggies. I don’t know if it’s Canada’s Best Sandwich, but it’s certainly one that I’ll make again!
If you want to enter to win the grand prize, why not come up with your own tasty sandwich creation using ACE Bakery bread?
