HORSHAM, Pa., Oct. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- What sandwich deserves the title the "Official Sandwich" of National Sandwich Day? Just in time for the holiday, Arnold and Oroweat Breads embarked on a mission to find the most delectable sandwich, and enlisted four top bloggers to create their favorite recipes this season in the Arnold and Oroweat National Sandwich Day Challenge. After a voting period by the Facebook fan community, the public has spoken: The Cheddar Bacon Panini with Caramelized-Apple Onion Chutney submitted by Kathy Strahs, of the blog Panini Happy, has come out on top.

No stranger to a Panini press, Kathy describes her warm autumn sandwich as a bold, "grown-up version of a grilled cheese sandwich." This sweet and tangy grilled Panini, served on Oroweat New York Style Extra Sour Rye, is a delicious option to kick off the nationwide sandwich celebrations on November 3.

Bloggers from three other sites, Carrots 'N Cake, Fit Bottomed Girls and My Gloss also submitted sandwiches for public voting. The recipes, which ranged from savory to sweet, are below.

Little Bites of Heaven was submitted by Tina Haupert, the blogger behind Carrots 'N Cake, and described as "fun size candy bar" sandwiches. Warm and toasty Paninis, these bite-size treats are made with marshmallow fluff and chocolate-hazelnut spread slathered on Arnold or Oroweat Health-full Hearty Wheat bread, with shredded coconut and crumbled graham cracker in the middle.

Open-Faced Fruit and Egg Brunch-wich was created by Jenn Walters, one of the co-founders of Fit Bottomed Girls, when she dreamt of the perfect quick sandwich that's both savory and sweet, and perfect any time of the day. After spreading fig butter on a slice of toasted Arnold or Oroweat Health-full Nutty Grain bread, top with spinach, brie and a poached egg for a nutritiously delicious open-faced sandwich.

Turkey, Brie and Hot Pepper Jelly Sandwich with Arugula was submitted by My Gloss' Lolita Carrico after polling her readers on two different sandwich recipes. Piling Arnold or Oroweat Country Whole-Grain White Bread with thinly sliced turkey breast, creamy brie and arugula, she adds an unexpected heat with a touch of hot pepper jelly inspired by her East Indian background.
