Picnics, Tailgating and traveling Leaf-Lookers take note, it’s almost that time of year when we can enjoy the outdoors without wilting! Which means, grab some tasty sandwiches and finger foods and make your way outdoors.

Picnics are great but can take a little planning, for the cook/parent that is. For me, not only do I get to pack a basket, but I also have to keep in mind to pack and bring the kids along too. Ha.

If you can have some go-to recipes with ingredients on hand to make, plus a few other items in place then you can sit back and enjoy. If not, then start with this recipe and then start adding to your recipe box with some more easy to make and travel friendly recipes to refer to. Big time saver!

I love to go on picnics! It’s a wonderful way to make family memories and enjoy the outdoors. We always have a picnic blanket ready in the car for those spontaneous outings. That’s why I like to have a few quick and easy recipes on hand that I can whip up without spending grueling hours planning and preparing and of course eventually forgetting something at the end of it all.

Making this sandwich is like a really cool package and it travel’s well, you can add to or vary the meats if you like to suit your own taste, but this recipe happens to be one of our favorites. The apple slices are a tasty addition and add just the right amount of yumminess to set this sandwich apart. For the apples, I prefer a crispy sweet apple, like Gala’s or Fujis.

The best bread to use is called a Boule bread, a small round loaf that you can find in the bakery section of your local grocery store. For the bread that I take out to form my “bowl”, I don’t like to waste it, so I just pop it in a food processor and make bread crumbs then seal them in a freezer bag and put in the freezer for later (I have a gallon size bag that I just keep adding to and will keep for up to 3 months in the freezer).

For a {mostly} stress-free picnic or on-the-go lunch, try my tips below to save you a bit time so that you can enjoy your day.

My go-to picnic plan:

  • Keep a picnic blanket, and a tiny trove of disposable cutlery, dishes and napkins in your car at all times, replacing as needed.
  • Keep juice boxes in your freezer so they’re ready to double as ice packs.
  • Keep a stash of your favorite deli meats and cheeses on hand, so that you can easily create your picnic loaf.
  • Grapes, cherries and other fresh fruit are perfect for on-the-go snacks. Keep them washed and stored in the refrigerator, already divided into serving sized containers that all you have to do is grab and go.
  • Have a variety of individual kettle chips or your favorite crunchy snack ready and waiting.
  • Now all you have left to do is to assemble your Picnic Loaf and you’re off.

Triple Meat with Brie Picnic Sandwich

Yield: 2 - 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

A great sandwich to enjoy on a picnic, tailgating party or lunch for a crowd, the Triple Meat with Brie Picnic Sandwich.


  • Boule bread, a small round loaf (about 8 – 10 inches in size)
  • Honey Roasted Ham slices
  • Smoked Turkey slices
  • Smoked Bacon, about 4 - 6 slices and cooked until crispy
  • Butter
  • Handful of baby Lettuce
  • Brie cheese (I prefer to remove the rind for mine, but it's all up to personal preference)
  • ½ large or 1 medium Gala or Fuji Apple, or your favorite crispy apple, thinly sliced


  1. Slice the top off of your bread and scoop out the soft bread inside of the bottom half to create a bowl. Place both the top and bottom of bread in a hot oven to lightly toast, if desired.
  2. Lightly spread the inside of the “bowl” with butter, this is to act as a barrier to prevent your bread from going soggy.
  3. Start layering with the ham, crispy bacon, lettuce, turkey, brie (I like to remove the rind and spread it like butter), sliced apples and a few more crumbles of bacon.
  4. Put the bread top back on and tie it with some twine to secure and you’re ready to travel.
  5. Wrap it up in a tea towel, place in your picnic cooler surrounded by your frozen juice boxes to keep cool.
  6. Grab a good bread knife to take with you, and a small bread board and you’re all set for a stress free picnic.
