Five Panera Bread Secret Menu Items Worth a Try

Panera Bread is known for its delicious comfort food menu offerings, but did you know that there are a few “secret” menu items that most people aren’t even aware of? What’s even better is that if you know about them, you can order them and give these hidden gems a try. By using just a few of these tips and suggestions that have been passed on to us by Panera workers, you can transform your dining enjoyment with them and you’ll experience Panera Bread in a way that few know how to do. Although there are several of them, we’ve selected the five most highly regarded by Panera foodies and workers who swear they’re nothing short of amazing. Here are five Panera Bread secret menu items worth a try.

1. Chili-Mac

Although you can order this secret menu item any time of the year, there’s just something about eating Chili-Mac in cold weather that gives it an extra special appeal. Panera Bread’s version is a combination that is definitely worth trying. The two menu items are really good by themselves, but when blended together, it creates a flavor sensation that can’t be beaten, especially if you love chili and mac n’ cheese. Be warned though, this highly satisfying combo is quite filling. Workers share that all you need to do to enjoy this wonderful blend is to place an order for Panera Bread’s mac n’ cheese, and an order of chili, then ask them to mix the two together for one of the best late fall and winter treats.

2. The Garlic Herb Spread

The Garlic Herb spread is another secret menu items that is a must try. There are a few different ways that you can use this tasty spread to make your meal even more enjoyable. It’s amazing on sandwiches and adds exceptional flavor. It’s also really good when you mix it in with pasta dishes. The Panera Bread Garlic Herb spread is also good when it’s just spread over a piece of bread, a roll or a bagel. It’s creamy and packed with rich garlic and herb flavoring that is hard to duplicate, so make sure that you try this secret menu item at least once because that’s all it takes to get hooked.

3. Super Grilled Cheese with special additions

Most people are not aware that you can customize the classic grilled cheese from the menu and request the workers to add a variety of different toppings to go along with it. It’s really good with ham that converts it into a ham and melted cheese. Depending on how much flavor you can handle, a few other ideas from the “secret” menu offerings that you can add are the garlic herb spread, bacon, and provolone for an exciting taste experience that you won’t find anywhere else. There are so many ways that you can jazz up the classic grilled cheese offered by Panera Bread. Use your imagination and make a creation that is truly your own.

4. Create your own “secret” specialty salad

Panera Bread offers a variety of salad choices, but they will also cater to people with unique or specific dietary requirements. This is a secret that you won’t see on the menu, but once you know about it, you can make your salad protein-rich or vegetarian. Add special ingredients from the menu to create the ideal combination and you’ll have a Panera Bread special salad that includes “secret” ingredients that your friends won’t know about unless you let them in on it. To order one of these special salads, just let the worker taking your order know what it is you want.

5. Sierra Chicken Sandwich

This is another item from the Panera Bread “secret” menu. You can get this secret specialty by ordering a sandwich with their Asiago focaccia bread with smoked chicken, and make sure that they add chipotle mayonnaise, red onions and from there, any other ingredients that you desire. This is one of the best sandwich combinations that can be had from Panera Bread’s secret menu. You won’t see it offered in print in this combination, and this is the best part of it. Workers came up with this heavenly delight through their own experimentation and now their secret is out.
