Panera Bread Recipes, Hints & Videos

Panera Bread has been baking bread for much less than thousands of years, but they have come to symbolize fresh bread at its finest. Established in 1981, Panera's company motto is "A loaf of bread in every arm®". In fact, their goal is to make great artisan bread available to people across America.

They bake more fresh bread each day than any other company like it and at every location they have trained bakers who make each loaf from scratch. But, you don't have to visit Panera to make some of their great sandwiches and soups; just check out the recipes below.
