It is National Sandwich Month — Celebrate with Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese

When you observe National Sandwich Month in August, there’s a good chance your go-to sandwich will incorporate one of the most popular fillings—cheese. In fact, Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese can enhance everything from hamburgers to grown-up grilled cheese sandwiches, and new spins on classics. According to the food market research firm Datassential, nearly half of us ate a sandwich in the past day, whether it was for breakfast, a late-night snack or the mealtimes in between. Not only will Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella and Crave Brothers Mascarpone help you upgrade your sandwich-making, you also can create sandwich-compatible salads.



Similar to the way you handcraft your own sandwiches at home, Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Cheeses are handcrafted in a farmstead cheese-making facility on the family’s own dairy farm. To complete your sandwich experience, pair it with a salad. Complement sandwiches such as Crave Brothers Mascarpone Egg Salad Grilled Cheese with a pasta salad featuring the award-winning Crave Brothers Marinated Fresh Mozzarella Ciliegine. Cherry-size fresh mozzarella balls are marinated in an olive oil/canola oil blend with a custom spice mix. Simply add the Marinated Fresh Mozzarella Ciliegine to your favorite pasta salad recipe. You can also brush a bit of the marinade on bread before toasting it for sandwiches. The Crave Brothers’ spin on egg salad sandwiches adds mustard, Old Bay Seasoning, diced chives and two or three ounces of Crave Brothers Mascarpone to each sandwich.

Another sandwich and salad combination is the Fresh Corn, Tomato and Mozzarella Salad featuring Crave Brothers Perline Size Fresh Mozzarella, and The George, named for licensed cheese maker George Crave. When he is not inspiring artisan sandwiches, he oversees the making of all the Crave Brothers handcrafted artisan cheeses. The George sandwich can be made in a skillet. The sandwich layers include slices of roast beef, Crave Brothers Mascarpone, horseradish sauce and finely ground rosemary, served on pumpernickel bread.

Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella enhances sandwiches and salads alike. It’s available in various sizes:  perline (pearl size), ciliegine (cherry size), bocconcini (ball size), ovoline (egg size), medallions, 8 oz. balls, 1# balls, and 1# logs.  All told, Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella has won more than 40 awards, including two First Place Awards at the 2019 U.S. Championship Cheese Contest.  Crave Brothers Mascarpone is a sweet, creamy cheese that adds a velvety texture as well as richness to sandwiches. It has been honored with more than 30 awards, including First Place at the 2018 World Dairy Expo.



Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese is made with milk from the family’s own dairy herd, and sustainably produced in the family’s farmstead cheese-making facility that practices water conservation, recycling, and uses 100 percent green power.
