Share Article

The local grocer offers a fresh take on classic recipes.

August is National Peach Month and National Sandwich Month, and with this in mind, King Kullen offers easy recipes to try. New recipes mean new flavors, and King Kullen has simple ways to modify tried-and-true classics for something fresh and different. To make it even easier, everything needed for these recipes can be found on King Kullen’s stocked shelves.

Boost Vitamin Intake
A healthy diet starts with eating foods that are good sources of vitamins. Peaches contain important nutrients, including vitamins A, B6, C, E and K, as well as fiber, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate and potassium. These offer benefits including promoting healthy skin, blood pressure and digestive systems, as well as protecting eye health. Plus, peaches are low in calories and packed with natural sugars.

When shopping, be sure to select fully ripe peaches. Start by holding the peach and checking for firmness; peaches should be soft to the touch, rather than hard or mushy. Peaches with green around the stem aren’t fully ripe. If fully ripe, they will give off a sweet fragrance.

Sweeten Any Meal
Peaches can be added to all kinds of meals. Start the day off with a new take on a filling breakfast favorite; Peaches and Cream Baked French Toast ( is easy to prepare the night before and put in the oven the next morning.

Peaches can be a main dish too. Paired with chicken, the sweetness of the peaches comes out in this Balsamic Peach Chicken Skillet recipe (

Take advantage of what’s left of the grilling season to create a dessert that’s light, but delicious. This recipe for Grilled Peaches with Honey Cinnamon Sauce ( only requires three ingredients and is ready to serve in 10 minutes.

At-home happy hour can be enjoyed at any time with a refreshing margarita. Change it up with Fresh Peach Margaritas ( that are fruity, frothy and pureed to perfection.

Beyond The Basics
Sandwiches are easy to pack for work or school, or to enjoy at home. Either way, a few simple tips can make a boring sandwich a much better sandwich. King Kullen has some ideas for putting together the ultimate combinations.

When building a sandwich, every layer counts. Start by choosing a fresh, hearty bread and pair it with even better condiments. Swap out mayo and mustard for flavor-packed aioli or sweet barbecue sauce, or keep it light with olive oil. Another healthy alternative, especially for mayo-lovers is any Greek yogurt dressing. For extra flavor add some salt, pepper and spices to the lettuce and tomato. Finish the sandwich off with meats, cheeses and veggies.

For hoagie lovers, this Philly-Style Italian Hoagie is a must try ( A trip to the deli and bakery will be well-worth it for this recipe.

Toasting adds an extra crunch to any sandwich. For a twist on classic grilled cheese, get out the skillet and try this Grilled California Club Sandwich ( that’s piled high with meats, veggies and of course — cheese.

For a meat-free option, try The Ultimate Veggie Sandwich ( It’s full of fresh vegetables and paired with a chive and onion spread.

After selecting all the ingredients, follow a layering method to avoid creating a mess. Start with cheese, then meat and finish with slices of vegetables.

Think Ahead
Meal prepping saves money, encourages portion control and makes grocery shopping more fun. Following recipes and having a set grocery list prevents overbuying, and staying organized cuts down time in the kitchen. Rather than getting overwhelmed, start small and master one recipe at a time. To avoid getting bored, keep trying new recipes.
