Today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite sandwiches – The Rachel! Plus get to know my all time favorite bread!
I’ll admit, I’m a bread snob. It’s not only because I’m an avid baker. The majority of sliced bagged bread that you find in the store is equivalent to cardboard. Seriously.
I’ll share a funny (actually not so funny) story with you. A friend’s son did a science fair project a few years back. He was studying molds on breads. He wanted to see how it long it took various types of breads to grow mold. Various samples included homemade white bread, homemade wheat, store bought sliced white and wheat.
The homemade breads, as you would expect, grew mold within a weeks time.
The store bought white and wheat NEVER grew mold. In 6 weeks time – the breads never grew mold. Eeeeek!!!!
I will NEVER forget that when I shop for bread.
Back to my bread snob status. I would love to bake every loaf of bread my family eats – but it doesn’t happen. I’m shooting about 70/30 – in favor of store bought. That’s life. So when I buy sliced bread, which is a main part of many of our meals, I make sure it’s not just an empty filler lacking nutrition. Oh, and I prefer to skip the mystery preservatives of those cardboard immortal type breads.
So I’d like to introduce you to a bread that is SUPER nutritious & delicious. The bread that I buy – the bread that I feed my family. I LOVE it! Say hello to Dave’s Killer Bread. I’ve been a fan of this bread, and the bagels, for quite some time.
Dave’s Killer Bread is the #1 selling organic bread brand in the country. Still not familiar with it?
Every loaf of Dave’s Killer Bread is USDA organic and Non-GMO project verified. My personal favorite – Dave’s Killer Bread’s 21 Whole Grains and Seeds – is loaded with 5 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, 250 mg of Omega-3, and 22 grains whole grains. Oh, and that’s just the nutritional stats for one slice!
Seriously, that makes a slice of bread one killer breakfast. That ho-hum cold cut sandwich at lunch – it’s now seriously nutritious. Dinner…the possibilities are an endless powerhouse.
Not only is Dave’s Killer Bread’s 21 Whole Grains and Seeds good for you – it’s absolutely delicious! It’s hearty, filling and has just a touch of that homemade sweetness.

The “Rachel”. It’s the Reuben’s lighter sister – perfect for warm weather eats. Sliced turkey, a fresh & simple coleslaw, Swiss cheese, thousand island dressing – oh, and maybe a slice of avocado or some bacon if you’re feeling extra adventurous.

My Favorite Rachel Sandwich

- sliced turkey
- coleslaw - homemade recipe below
- Swiss cheese
- thousand island dressing optional
- 1 tablespoon butter
- *Note* When I make this sandwich - I like to make it BIG. Amounts of ingredients will depend on how hearty of a sandwich you like. I used approximately a 1/4 pound sliced turkey, 4 slices of Swiss cheese and more coleslaw than most normal people would consume.
- Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.
- Add both slices of bread to pan - not on top of each other.
- Place cheese on each slice of bread, still open face.
- Cook until cheese is melted and bottoms of bread are golden brown.
- Remove bread and assemble sandwich - turkey on the bottom, top with coleslaw and a drizzle of thousand island dressing.
- Cut in half and enjoy!
