Bread – A nations favourite food-Styled and dressed to delight

Moderation is the key factor in any healthy diet, and most people will never want to deny themselves a good sandwich, but what about that carb intake? Pat says, what about it? For as long as you take it in moderation and substitute some of those toppings for a healthier option, you are good to bite, crunch and be wowed by the two creations we found for you today.

Bread goes with almost anything, a side plate for a pasta dish, a starter in a restaurant and the best, soldier dippers for that boiled egg in the morning, but what if you want to get creative? Well, you can, and if you follow the recipes below, you could host any afternoon tea that will rival any hotel!! From Mediterranean vegetables to seafood, you can dress up the humble loaf to make a meal fit for afternoon tea.
