The new Black Forest Ham & Gouda Melt joins three other Toasted Baguette flavor offerings: Green Goddess Caprese Melt, Pepperoni Mozzarella Melt and Smoky Buffalo Chicken Melt. The sandwiches start at $9.49 each (plus tax) and are prepared with clean ingredients in bold and fresh recipes.
Also coming to the menu is a new Deli Ham sandwich, crafted with black forest ham, emerald greens, vine-ripened tomatoes, red onions, Panera’s new country mustard, salt and pepper on Country Rustic Sourdough, starting at $8.99 (plus tax).
“We’re so excited to bring ham back onto the Panera menu, and our focus was on enhancing these sandwiches with amazing, unforgettable flavor that we knew our guests would love,” says Claes Petersson, head chef, Panera Bread. “Our chefs created our new delicious country mustard, finding the perfect blend of three mustards to compliment the flavors and create two irresistible new menu items we can’t wait for guests to try.”
