Summer Sandwich Ideas
Perfect for picnics and al-fresco dining, we’ve checked out the best the web has to offer for summer sandwich recipe inspiration. Our top picks are all light and filling to keep lunchtime hunger at bay at this time of year. Take a look! There’s a sandwich to suit everyone’s tastes.
These mini pitta breads, when packed with your child’s favourite sandwich filling, are sure to be a hit with little ones (and adults, too!). They’re featured on the BBC Good Food website and are super easy to make, just pop your mini pitta pockets in the toaster for 30 seconds and fill while hot. How about tuna and cheese for a tasty combo? Yummy!
Here at UKMums.TV, we recommend these crab salad toasts as seen on the Good House Keeping website for a classy lunchtime treat. Lump crab meat is the main ingredient and it’s light and refreshing when combined with apples! Simply mix lemon peel, juice, yoghurt and mayonnaise in a bowl along with yoghurt, mayonnaise and garlic and add salt and pepper before adding crab, celery, apple and chives to the mix. This mix is delicious when spread on lovely chunks of bread!
Fancy a Middle Eastern twist on the humble burger? Give this lamb patties with hummus and pitta recipe, courtesy of Nigella Lawson’s website www.nigella.com [LINK-www.nigella.com], a try! The mint and oregano flavoured patties, which are amazing alone, are taken to another level when smeared with hummus and the pittas are packed with red onion, mint and shredded lettuce.
For a fresh and zingy wrap sandwich that’s ideal for this time of year, we recommend Jamie Oliver’s Cracking Chicken Burrito! Not only is this Mexican classic really tasty, but it’s a great way to use up any leftover rice. It takes 50 minutes to prepare and serves four.
