Annual “America’s Better Sandwich” Contest 2016

Recipe Contest in search of a better sandwich on the best bread, in five creative categories. Here’s the scoop:

How to Enter:

Submit your original “better-for-you” sandwich creation for a shot at winning a large cash prize of $25,000 big bucks. Give your sandwich a name and enter your yummy, yet nutritious recipe idea into one of these five categories: Creative Classics, Fueling Good, Open-Face Artistry, Breakfast in Bread, or State Favorites. Your recipe must use either Arnold, Oroweat, or Brownberry brand bread as an ingredient. Describe what makes your sandwich better in health and taste.

Selecting the Winners:

Recipe entries into this contest will be judged on the nutritional quality of the selected ingredients; how well the recipe provides a unique/creative flavor profile; and the perceived ease of preparation. A top three will be chosen from each of the five categories. These fifteen finalist sandwiches will then be judged on taste; creativity/innovation; nutritious analysis; and online voting.

Here’s what you can win:

The Grand Prize winner for the best overall sandwich recipe will be awarded a check for $25,000. The person who has entered the winning recipe chosen from each category will be awarded a check for $5,000.


For every valid recipe submitted and every vote cast in this contest, a loaf of bread will be donated by the contest sponsor (Bimbo Bakeries USA) to Feeding America (up to 100,000 loaves) – very cool!

This competition is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico who are 18 years of age or older and who have reached the legal age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence. You are allowed to submit up to two entries in each of the five sandwich categories (a maximum of ten entries).
