With a household the size of mine, cooking at home is definitely better on the wallet than dining out. But the thing is, I love food and I want it to taste good so my husband and I are always coming up with new foods to try and recipes to make. So today I’ve partnered with Sandwich Bros. of Wisconsin® to share all about their Chicken Melts and my family’s favorite side dish, homemade mac n cheese with bacon to go with them.
Sandwich Bros. Chicken Melts are such an easy, yet delicious option for a quick lunch. The kids love them for days when they have off school and they devour them on weekends too. The whole family is actually home from school and work today, which I hadn’t anticipated so I figured my homemade mac n cheese and Sandwich Bros. Chicken Melts were perfect for lunch.
Sandwich Bros. Chicken Melts are flatbread pocket sandwiches that are made with 100% white chicken breast and real American cheese. It’s their most popular sandwich and super quick to make in the microwave. That’s what makes them a perfect snack for after school too! These Bacon Cheeseburger Bites that I made with Sandwich Bros. Angus Cheeseburgers are pretty tasty for after school too. I guess it’s no coincidence that the Sandwich Bros. tagline is “Really…Really Tasty!” Click here to find a store near you that carries Sandwich Bros. products and grab this $1 off coupon to save some money!
