You can bring to mind images of the French countryside with Open Faced Cornichon Butter Sandwiches. Starting with a nice crusty baguette, roughly chop a handful of cornichons, a small, tart European pickle and mix everything into fresh butter. Spread the mixture on half of your baguette and top with thin slices of our Signature Beef Summer Sausage.
If you’re looking for a grown up version of grilled cheese, try a Balsamic Strawvocado. Just add mashed avocado and slices of strawberries to two pieces of toasted wheat bread and sprinkle with balsamic vinegar. Top with our Farmhouse Cheddar and Peppercorn Cheese Round and place in a skillet until it’s melted and gooey.
Bring home the tropics with a spicy fish sandwich. Coat your fish in cornmeal and Cajun seasoning before pan frying. Then, using a kaiser roll, stack the fish, some shredded cabbage, cilantro and tomato, along with a spread of our Honey and Pineapple Mustard.
Jazz up a deli sandwich with homemade onion relish. Cook down red onion in olive oil and red wine vinegar and toss with fresh herbs. Finish by layering our Turkey Summer Sausage, our Sweet Hot Mustard and relish on thickly-sliced bread.
For a delicious sweet and savory treat that really takes the traditional cheese sandwich to the next level, try a Fig Jam and Smoked Gouda Sandwich. Slice a baguette in half and spread each side with fig jam and slices of our Smoked Gouda cheese. Place the sandwich under the broiler until the cheese melts and the bread is a nice golden color. Finish with a sprinkle of arugula.
