Sandwich Recipes You Need In Your Life ASAP

My all-time favorite sandwich combination is ham, cheese, and mustard on white bread. It’s been my go-to for as long as I can remember. But I’m an adult now, and I’ve been trying to become a more adventurous eater. So, I decided to get creative and look into some other recipes I could make using Farm Classics® deli meat—and to say I’m pleased with my findings would be a serious understatement:

Turkey & Cheese with Chipotle Mayo

Take the basic turkey and cheese combo to the next level with DIY chipotle mayo. All you have to do is combine mayo, chipotle peppers, and garlic.
