There are few things more all-American than a great sandwich and former White House Chef John Moeller made lots of them for U.S. Presidents over the years. Arnold®, Brownberry® and Oroweat® Bread are pleased to partner with Chef Moeller in the third annual “America’s Better Sandwich” contest.
From June 15, 2016 to August 21, 2016, food lovers across the country can share delicious and never-before-seen sandwiches with their fellow Americans and have the chance to take home a $25,000 grand prize.
Entrants can submit up to two recipes per category using Arnold®, Brownberry® and Oroweat® Whole Grain or Extra Grainy breads or Sandwich Thins® rolls in each of the following categories:
- State Favorites – well-known sandwiches from your state or local dishes that translate into a sandwich
- Fueling Good – incorporate energy-boosting ingredients like healthful fats, protein, fiber and iron
- Open-Faced Artistry – artistic one-slice snacks and meals that highlight nutritious ingredients
- Breakfast in Bread – breakfast favorites like eggs and yogurt, showcased in a new way
- Creative Classics – nutritious spins on sandwich favorites like the club sandwich or BLT
For every eligible recipe submitted during the entry period and for every vote cast during the voting period (September 26, 2016 – October 23, 2016), Arnold®, Brownberry® and Oroweat® will donate one loaf of bread to Feeding America, the contest’s official charitable partner, up to 100,000 loaves.
“With so many wholesome and delicious varieties of Arnold®, Brownberry® and Oroweat® bread to choose from, the great tasting, nutritious sandwich possibilities are endless,” said Brian DiNuzzo, Assistant Brand Manager. “We are excited to take the third annual ‘America’s Better Sandwich™’ Contest to new heights.”
In addition to Chef Moeller, partner chefs include:
- Chef Tre Wilcox – Dallas, TX

- Chef Fabio Viviani – Los Angeles, CA and Chicago IL
- Chef Kevin Gillespie – Atlanta, GA
- Chef Edward Lee – Louisville, KY

All Arnold®, Brownberry® and Oroweat® sliced breads and Sandwich Thins® rolls are cholesterol-free and contain no high fructose corn syrup, making them a great starting point for a nutritious sandwich. In addition, eating one sandwich made with Arnold®, Brownberry® and Oroweat® Whole Grain bread is a great way to incorporate more whole grains in your diet.
All eligible sandwiches will be judged by a panel of experts based upon nutrition, creativity and ease of preparation. The top three finalists from each category will also be posted online for public voting September 26, 2016 – October 23, 2016 to help determine Category and Grand Prize winners. On National Sandwich Day, November 3, 2016, Arnold®, Brownberry® and Oroweat® Bread will reveal the highest scoring recipes in each category and award them with $5,000 each. The highest overall scoring sandwich will receive a $25,000 Grand Prize and the 2016 title “America’s Better Sandwich™.”
