The Perfect Bread for the Perfect Sandwich

The key to these delicious Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwiches is my new fave Cobblestone Bread Co. Million Dollar White Bread! Its soft, sweet, rich in flavor, and substantial enough to hold all the toppings. This bakery style bread is all you need to make the perfect “grown up sandwiches”…ones you’ll crave again and again. I have always loved Cobblestone Bread, but this Million Dollar White Bread is for sure my new obsession. The “right sized” loaf is just PERFECT for our household. It’s hard for the two of us to devour a loaf before it goes bad, so the smaller size is right up our alley. Isn’t that just the best?
