How many sandwiches do you make in a week? Honestly, I am not sure I can keep count! I have seen my guys go through an entire loaf of bread in less than a day.

I really can’t blame them as there are so many delicious sandwich possibilities. Heck, with all the options, it’s absolutely possible to enjoy a different sandwich for each meal of the day.

While it can be hard to decide what fillings to put in your sandwich, choosing the bread is easy when you use sliced breads from King’s Hawaiian. Look for Original Hawaiian and NEW Honey Wheat Sliced Bread options now available at Publix. Both let you serve up great taste for lunch or dinner or whenever you want a tasty meal! So no matter what you decide, everything is better between King’s Hawaiian sliced bread.

We absolutely love all of the different King’s Hawaiian products so being able to enjoy that great flavor in a sliced bread is a dream come true. Whether it’s a basic PB&J, grilled cheese, tuna melt or something a bit more gourmet, King’s Hawaiian sliced bread makes all your sandwiches taste great.

You really can’t go wrong no matter what you put between those tasty slices. But, if you need a suggestion—I have a sandwich that will have your taste buds doing a happy dance! My Piggy Popper Melt is the ultimate melty sandwich that is just oozing with amazing flavor.

I happen to love a ham sandwich and I also love jalapeño poppers…when you combine those two things you get a sandwich like none other! It’s a little sweet with a little heat and lots of melty goodness. It just might be the perfect sandwich.

Now the recipe that I am sharing will make 4 sandwiches.  But, you can easily adjust the recipe to make exactly what you need.  Make just one sandwich or double the recipe and make 8…you really can’t mess this one up! Plus, you know I am all about keeping mealtime simple. So instead of trying to grill or fry these in a pan, I toss them in the oven. You get a beautifully toasted sandwich with lots of ooey gooey cheese. Oh my mouth is watering just talking about it!
