When I was younger I would meet my friends at the local Panera. We weren’t having a business meeting or talking about the future, we were just hanging out. I was a vegetarian back then, so I ordered the only non-meat sandwich, which was on ciabatta (that was the first time I ever tried ciabatta and I loved it). So now when I go back, my order is a combination of past and present.
This is what I order: a Mediterranean Veggie sandwich, which comes with Peppadew peppers, feta cheese, cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and cilantro Jalapeño hummus on tomato basil bread. But I order it on ciabatta and with extra Peppadew peppers because they are a-maz-ing.
What if you could make your own sandwich, though? Every ingredient you want, nothing you don’t?
Panera has a new contest called the Sandwich Showdown now through October 6. You make your own sandwich, give it a story, and hope to win $10,000 cash, $500 worth of Panera gift cards, free Panera Bread bagels for a year and…you’ll get to see your original recipe in actual Panera locations! I made one and it was fun to be creative without the messy kitchen clean-up afterward.
This contest has ended. Thank you for entering!
But it doesn’t stop there. Once you enter the contest following the link above, come back and comment below to enter a $25 gift card giveaway to Panera (one entry).

I’ll choose the winner using random.org on Thursday, October 4 and the winner will be notified via email. The winner will have 48 hours to reply – if there is no response, I will choose another entry. The gift card will be sent from a local PR agency. Good luck!
Panera compensated me with a $25 gift card in exchange for this post. Opinions are my own and I do order the Mediterranean Veggie every time I go to Panera.
