Blue Ribbon shared some few GI and GL bread easy recipes with Mzansi Life.
Become a toasted sarmie master with just a few slices of Blue Ribbon bread and your trusty snackwich machine.
Bold with blueberries
Spread low-fat cream cheese on a slice of bread. Top with blueberries and drizzle with a little honey before closing with another piece of bread. Toast until golden brown and the cheese is oozing. This sarmie is just sweet enough for breakfast and just as delicious as an afternoon snack.
Il sarmie delicioso
Layer buffalo mozzarella with sliced cherry tomatoes and basil leaves on a slice of bread. Top with a second slice of bread and toast until the cheese is completely melted. If you’re a pizza-lover, you’ll adore this Mediterranean-inspired creation.
Apple pie crisp
Squeeze lemon over thinly sliced pieces of apple – this will prevent them from going brown. Mix a few tablespoons of ricotta cheese with a drop or two of vanilla essence and a teaspoon of honey. Spread onto bread. Top with apple slices, sprinkle with cinnamon and close with another slice of bread. Toast until crisp. Apple pie in a toasted sarmie (or heaven on toast).
If you need to eat breakfast on the fly, try this filling combination – it’ll give you long-lasting energy. Make a sandwich with sliced banana, a few teaspoons of peanut butter (with no added sugar or salt) and two slices of fresh Blue Ribbon bread. Toast until golden brown. Simple as that.
Mighty chicken mayo
Lighten up your chicken mayo (and give it extra zing) by mixing shredded chicken with one part mayo and one part plain yoghurt. Add a squeeze of lime juice, crumbled feta and chopped fresh herbs. Spread between two slices of bread and toast until hot and crisp.
Jam and tart
Perhaps the simplest, most delightful tea-time sarmie, inspired by traditional flavours – cheese and jam. Pair low-fat cottage cheese with low-sugar apricot jam to make a jammy toasted sandwich. Serve with a steaming cup of tea. Bliss.
Sharp cheddar works perfectly with sweet caramelised onion – and is even more delicious when sandwiched between two slices of fresh bread. Toast until crispy, and serve with lots of crunchy rocket leaves.
Layer sliced smoked turkey, cranberry jelly and a mild cheese (Emmental works well) between two slices of bread. Toast until deliciously golden brown. If you need a festive flavour hit, this is your toasted sarmie.
