The Hero Gets A Makeover

(NAPSI)-For years, hungry adults and children alike have turned to the always-satisfying "hero" sandwich to quench their yearnings. But every now and then, even this beloved favorite could benefit from a face-lift. While the main ingredients of the sandwich may stay relatively the same, getting creative with condiments can help return the hero to super status.

For a break from standard sandwich fare, try an Apricot-Dijon Ham Griller, featuring the SAVORY HONEY variety from GREY POUPON. The subtle notes of honey accent the ham's flavor, while hints of coriander, paprika and turmeric provide a surprisingly savory element, which complements the fresh, fruity flavors of pear slices and apricot preserves.
