Panera Bread Popular Items To Try

Now that ordering from Panera’s catering menu sounds tempting, it’s time to decide what is the best meal option for your guests.

As platters and boxed meals come with a wide choice of dishes, here are some of the most popular Panera items as an inspiration: 

01. Bacon Turkey Bravo Sandwich 

The classic, delicious Turkey Sandwiched prepared by Panera’s chefs has now been improved.

Combining the delightful turkey meat with fresh tomatoes, greens, smoked Gouda, and tasty bacon, a bite of this sandwich is truly a reward for your taste buds.

Even more, the tomato basil bread and Panera’s signature sauce give it a unique spark.

02. Broccoli Cheddar Soup 

The famous Broccoli Cheddar Soup brought the restaurant to a new level, proving that it couldn’t only serve delicious sandwiches but also heavenly soups and salads.

Chips, a French baguette, or an apple are served free as a side to this dish.

One bowl contains 370 calories, the perfect amount to energize you for the day! Remember this soup when the chilly autumn evenings call for a heartwarming delight. 

03. Asian Sesame Salad

The salad options at Panera are truly impressive. The healthy Asian sesame salad contains simple grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, sesame seeds, a hint of cilantro for flavor, as well as an Asian sesame vinaigrette that gives its authentic taste.

Toasted almonds are also added to increase protein, as one serving of this dish contains about 27 g of protein and 410 calories.

04. Creamy Tomato Soup 

Fresh tomatoes mixed with cream, oregano, and just a spark of spicy red pepper are the ingredients that make this soup so tasty.

This soup is perfect for a quick lunch, with croutons and a free side. Also, premium side options can be chosen for an extra cost: tomato basil cucumber salad/ fruit cup.

05. Grilled Cheese 

The melty, rich-in-flavor grilled cheese of Panera’s Bread, served with fresh, warm bakery items, is sometimes everything you need after a long work day.

Make it into a group dinner and share this delight with your family and friends.
