#FreestyleFood - 8 Sandwich Ideas To Make You Go Hmmm...
Grabbing a ready-made lunch off the shelves is not cost-effective, which is why many opt into making their own lunches. But even such a simple a task can be tedious and results in us eating the same meal every lunchtime, which is of course practical. I mean who really wants to be burdened with having to prepare different dishes just for lunch when we are preoccupied by other life matters? Such as life goes, a little inspiration is what's need to try something new. So why now inspire yourself to 'lunch' better and freestyle with your sandwich choices using the nation’s top three humble sandwich choices - cheese, ham and chicken - courtesy of Lurpak. Enjoy!
Chicken & Mango Sandwich With Mint Raita
Be the lunchtime hero: Spread walnut bread or granary bread with Lurpak Spreadable. Top with mixed leaves, thinly sliced fresh mango and ripped-up roast chicken breast. Add a dollop of Greek yogurt flavoured with finely chopped mint and a spoonful of mango chutney with a few extra mint leaves on top for that little bit extra.
Smoked Ham & Egg With Capers, Gherkins And Mustard Mayo
Evoke jealousy: Top a seeded roll or bagel with Lurpak Spreadable, watercress, slices of smoked ham and a sliced boiled egg. Throw in a couple of sliced gherkins and finish with a dollop of mustard mayo and a sprinkling of tiny capers. Show it off!
Feta With Avocado & Roasted Red Pepper
Experiment with pride: Place a handful of baby spinach leaves on to fresh focaccia covered in Lurpak Spreadable. Add some ripe avocado slices, ripped-up roasted red pepper and broken-up chunks of feta, with a few torn basil leaves, ground black pepper and balsamic vinegar.
Fig, Manchego & Honey Crostini
Messy makes the mouth water: Spread Lurpak Spreadable on a rustic baguette and layer with Serano ham and Manchego cheese. Chop a fig into wedges and layer on top. Finish with a drizzle of honey and a scattering of walnuts for extra crunch.
Peach & Ricotta On Raison Bread
Experiment – there’s life beyond egg and cress: Sweeten ricotta with vanilla essence and lemon zest. Leave to infuse. Heat peach wedges in a pan to enhance the flavours. Spread Lurpak Spreadable on raisin bread, add the ricotta mixture, peaches and chopped pistachios. A trickle of honey and rose water creates the perfect finish.
Middle Eastern Feta, Beetroot & Pomegranate
Trust your taste buds: Toss beetroot, spinach leaves, feta and dill in a bowl and season with black pepper, salt and lemon juice. Take two slices of Middle Eastern Bread or pitta. Spread with Lurpak Spreadable and layer on the beetroot, spinach and feta. Finish with pomegranate seeds.
Pulled Chicken Waffle Burger
Perfection doesn’t have to look perfect: Heat cooked chicken in a pan with a dollop of BBQ sauce until hot. Cook an egg in a separate pan, keep it runny or hard – you choose. Cover one waffle in Lurpak Spreadable and layer on the chicken. Slide the egg on top and dress with red onion chutney. Top with another waffle and season!
Prawns With Broad Beans & Mint On Rye
Inspiration doesn't come pre-packed: Combine a mixture of cooked broad beans, tiger prawns, fresh mint, cucumber and olive oil in a bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to season. Smear rye bread with Lurpak Spreadable. Scoop the prawn mixture over the bread, moisten with a burst of lemon and admire!
Bacon, Ricotta, Kale, Chilli, Lemon & Tomato On Sourdough
Go from BLT to BLRKCT: Fry garlic, kale, chilli, salt and pepper in a pan. Butter two slices of sourdough with Lurpak Spreadable and ricotta. Add a dash of lemon zest. Mount one slice with kale, tomato and grilled bacon and place the second on top as the crowning glory.
