Sourdough is one of the oldest baking methods in the world, and it’s still insanely popular today.

But instead of just making a simple sandwich, why not try these recipes with sourdough bread?

That signature tang and chewy texture make all kinds of dishes pop.

So from salads and grilled cheese to French toast and stuffing, you’ll want to make these sourdough bread recipes again and again.

25 Easy Recipes with Sourdough Bread for Lunch and Dinner

1. Kimchi Grilled Cheese 

You can’t go wrong with a grilled cheese sandwich. There’s a reason every child in the world* loves them and why even grown-ups can’t say no.

Grilled cheese sandwiches are fantastic, plain, and simple.

Crispy, crunchy bread, gooey, melted cheese. Seriously, what’s not to love? 

But this kimchi grilled cheese takes the traditional up a notch. It adds garlic, kimchi, basil leaves, and more.

It even uses two different types of cheese! Trust me; you’ll love it. 

*Note: I have no scientific evidence to back up this fact. But it is a fact, by my loose definition of the word anyway. 🙂 

2. Air Fryer Grilled Cheese

This grilled cheese is a little more basic, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less scrumptious.

It’s buttery and cheesy, with delightfully crunchy bread. 

It’s pretty much everything most people want in grilled cheese. And you can make it in no time in the Air Fryer! That’s a win-win in my book.

3. Sourdough Panzanella Salad

If you’ve never had Panzanella, you’re in for a real treat. It’s the salad for bread lovers.

Fresh, bright, and full of summery flavors like red onions and cherry tomatoes, it’s zippy, juicy, and super flavorful.

Still not sure if you’ll like it? Here’s the test: What does your croutons-to-salad ratio look like when you go to an all-you-can-eat salad bar? 

If it’s heavily skewed toward the crouton side, you’ll dig Panzanella. 

4. Lemon Kale Caesar Salad

Want a salad that’s a bit more nutritious and salad-like? I’ve got you covered there, too.

This tangy, earthy kale Caesar salad is full of vitamins and minerals. 

It’s a proper salad in every sense of the word. But you still get to use some of your leftover sourdough to make it. 

5. Breakfast Strata with Hojiblanca Olives and Chorizo

Sourdough for breakfast? Don’t mind if I do! 

Strata with hojiblanca olives and chorizo might not be something you’ve ever heard of.

But now that you know what it is, I’m confident you’ll want to try it. 

It’s a hearty breakfast casserole with sourdough, sausage, olives, and lots of cheese.

There’s also eggs, onions, and other yummy things in the mix. 

Give it a try if you want a breakfast that’ll keep you full till supper. 

6. Sourdough Breakfast Casserole

Here’s another filling breakfast casserole featuring sourdough. This one, though, is less exotic.

It sticks to bread, sausage, eggs, and cheese. So, it’s an excellent choice for those who prefer more traditional breakfast foods. 

7. Steak Sandwich

If you think a steak sandwich sounds decadent, wait until you hear the rest.

This sandwich calls for thick sourdough bread, succulent steak, and a to-die-for garlic and herb spread. 

Not to mention the creamy chipotle sauce, juicy tomatoes, salty bacon, and more. 

Yeah. This sandwich is the Elvis of sandwiches.

It may not be a great idea for everyday lunch, but as an occasional indulgence, it’s divine.

8. Reuben Sandwich on Sourdough 

The Reuben on sourdough is a little less over-the-top but tastes just as fantastic.

This recipe features all the staples of a true Reuben – Thousand Island dressing, corned beef, sauerkraut, etc. – only on sourdough. 

And the bit of heat from the pepper jack cheese makes it even better.

9. Cast Iron Patty Melts

These patty melts are incredibly messy, but they taste so insanely good, no one will care.

They’re meaty, cheesy, and full of traditional patty melt flavors. 

The thick sourdough bread pulls it all together and keeps everything in place. 

10. Creamy Chipped Beef on Sourdough with Chives

Move over, biscuits and gravy. This 20-minute meal is down-home comfort food at its finest. 

The creamy, pepper-infused gravy is melt-in-your-mouth incredible.

Pair that with salty beef chunks and thick, crunchy sourdough, and you have a real hit. 

It’s one of those dishes you could eat for any meal of the day and come away satisfied. Enjoy!

11. Poppy Party Bread

Pull-apart breads are some of my favorite recipes to make – especially for parties.

They’re always a big hit, and I never have to worry about leftovers. 

And this poppy party bread is no exception. Loaded with cheese, onions, butter, and poppy seeds, it’s impossible to resist. 

Somehow those five ingredients pack more flavor than some four-course meals I’ve had.

It’s a savory, cheesy, umami-packed treat that flies off the table – so make extra!

12. Buttered Mushroom, Sage Pesto + Goat Cheese Sourdough Toast

These gorgeous toasts make incredible appetizers or tasty lunches.

You’ll top each piece of sourdough with goat cheese, pistachios, pomegranate arils, and more.

The result? A dish that looks like something you’d find at a five-star restaurant. But fortunately, they aren’t difficult to make at home. 

You’ll adore the combination of sweet, tangy, salty, and earthy flavors. And so will your guests.

13. Crispy Chickpea Toast with Avocado and Yogurt Sauce  

This toast is a little less fancy but just as yummy. You’ll top each slice with radishes, crunchy chickpeas, and avocado slices. 

The tangy, garlicky yogurt sauce spread pulls all the flavors together, making a healthy, hearty 10-minute meal. Yum!

14. Roasted Chicken Legs with Sourdough Bread & Poblanos

Did you know you can work sourdough into your roasted chicken dinner?

I know! This recipe surprised me, too! I never thought of using sourdough like this!

It’s a complete meal on a single sheet pan. You’ve got protein, carbs, veggies, and extra herbs for flavor.

It’s hard not to appreciate a one-pan recipe like that.

15. Herbed Sourdough Stuffing with Sausage & Mushrooms

Want to take your Thanksgiving stuffing to the next level? This recipe can help.

It’s herby, earthy, and comforting to the last bite. Plus, the sausage and mushrooms make it hearty enough to enjoy by itself.

Serve it as a holiday side dish or a standalone weeknight dinner. Either way, your family won’t be able to get enough.  

16. Broad Bean Bruschetta 

Looking for the world’s easiest bruschetta recipe? You’ve just found it!

You can pull these toasts together in less than 30 minutes with only a handful of ingredients. 

Fresh, zingy, bright, earthy, and minty, this bruschetta is nothing like the tomato-based ones you’re used to.

It’s still very, very good, though.

17. Tomato Bacon Cheese Toast 

I’ve already made it clear how much I love grilled cheese sandwiches.

But I’m just as nuts about cheese toasts. Especially cheese toasts with drool-worthy bacon and juicy tomatoes.

And that’s just what these are. Call them cheese toasts, open-faced BLTs (minus the ‘L’), or whatever you want; they are awesome

Filling and full of flavor, they take just 20 minutes to make. It’s hard to argue with that kind of deliciousness and convenience.

18. Port Infused Nut Stuffing

This delicious stuffing is as nutty as it is herby. (And yes, that’s a terrific combination.)

It uses several ingredients and takes a little time to get right. But if you want a dish that’ll wow everyone who sees it, you can’t beat it.

It’s elegant, fragrant, and delicious with the perfect blend of nuts, herbs, dried fruits, and sausage.

Just be careful: if you make this for Thanksgiving, your family may force you to make it every year and even when it’s not the holidays!

19. Sourdough Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is a classic dessert that uses up stale bread – the drier, the better!

It’s basically French toast casserole, and this version has a pleasant tangy twist.

It’s sweet, spongy, and not too rich. Serve it for your next brunch, and it’ll be gone in a flash.

20. Dressed Up Spring Salad Open-Faced Sandwich

I don’t know if there’s a more perfect name for a recipe.

This one describes these sandwiches to a T! They are dressed up. They are open-faced. And they are 110% Spring infused! 

All that gorgeous green and fresh flavors come together to make something perfect for a garden party. 

Don’t take my word for it, though. Try them for yourself! Everyone will appreciate their beauty and their taste.

21. Turkey Melt Sandwich

Why have a boring old turkey sandwich when you can have a turkey melt instead?

Don’t get me wrong; I love turkey sandwiches. 

But a warm turkey melt with bacon on sourdough? Oh man, that’s a killer!

It’s comforting, filling, and just so stinking good. 

Oh, and the red wine mayo? Swoon. 

22. Warm Skillet Crab Dip in a Sourdough Bread Bowl

You had me at crab dip.

What could be more indulgent than ooey-gooey cheesy crab dip in a sourdough bread bowl?

If that doesn’t make your mouth water, I don’t know what will. (And if it doesn’t, don’t worry; I’m drooling enough for the both of us.) 

This dip is phenomenal. So much so, you may not want to share!

23. Sourdough French Toast

Sourdough French toast is a favorite breakfast treat in my house.

It’s sweet, gently spiced, and super crunchy. Plus, everyone gets to load it up with their favorite toppings

So make it the next time you need an extra special option for breakfast or brunch, and it’ll be gone in a flash. 

24. Baked Brie Mac and Cheese

This casserole-like dish combines two of my favorite cheese recipes: baked brie and mac & cheese.

So when I say it’s rich, creamy, supremely cheesy, and just a bit decadent, you know it’s the truth. 

Of course, it’s not the kind of dish to have every night. But we all need to indulge now and then, right?

25. Brothy Beans on Garlic Toast

Unfortunately, this recipe isn’t the kind of garlic toast you can eat with your hands. It’s too messy for that.

But what it lacks in neatness, it makes up for in yumminess. 

It features garlic, shallots, chili flakes, peppers, olives, capers…the list goes on and on.

This is a high-quality toast with enough flavor to knock even Goliath off his feet. 

Every bite is one you’ll want to savor. Try it once, and you’ll be hooked!
