Oroweat Sandwich Creations & Giveaway

This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Orowheat

I was happy to have the opportunity to test Oroweat’s new line of Dutch Country breads and write a review. The three breads our family tried are 100% Whole Wheat, Premium Potato and Extra Fiber.

All three have a smooth texture and I must say I am very pleased that Oroweat does not put High Fructose Corn Syrup in their breads! Now, as readers of SAHM: Surviving Assorted Home Mayhem know, I am trying to get the last of the “baby weight” off and follow Weight Watchers. I am very happy that Oroweat’s Extra Fiber bread is hearty and filling at only one point per slice! Here are a couple of the sandwich creations I came up with.

Health Nut:

2 slices Oroweat Dutch Country Extra Fiber
Spread with 1 T reduced fat or whipped cream cheese
Top with sprouts, 1 oz. sliced avocado, 1 T sliced olives and 1T roasted pumpkin seeds

[5.5 WW points]

Classic Smoked Turkey & Swiss:

2 slices Oroweat Dutch Country Extra Fiber

Spicy mustard, thin sliced smoked turkey, reduced fat Swiss cheese slice, lettuce or sprouts, tomato, onion and banana peppers.

[4 WW points]

Of course any of Oroweat’s breads could be used for these sandwiches, in fact the Teenager liked the 100% Whole Wheat and little guy favored the Premium Potato bread with peanut butter and honey. I did get some “looks” from the Hubby and Teenager when I mentioned I was making sandwiches and they heard the dreaded words “sprouts” and “seeds” but they actually liked my creation and the bread really made the sandwiches!
