What should I put on my fresh sourdough bread?

Aimee Dec 8, 2007 01:10 PM

I have eggs, tuna packed in oil, different kinds of cheeses, some herbs, endive. None of it is inspiring me so I thought I'd turn to the board.

    Tomato and mayo with some fresh ground pepper.

      Good butter. That's my favorite thing to put on fresh bread. Forget tomatoes worth eating this time of year.

        I still have tomatoes in my garden. One of my favorite sayings though is, "there's nothing better than a good tomato and nothing worse than a bad one".

        I think mushroom and swiss would be good with sourdough too.

          I don't have any more good tomatoes. That's always my first choice!

          Along those lines, blue cheese (usually gorgonzola) and honey is fairly classic, I do believe.

              Ah fresh sourdough bread .....one of life's treasures. I don't need anything on it, but a good butter is always good.
              I also love burgers on sourdough. BLT's if the tomatoes are good. Turkey with swiss, lettuce and mayo.

                Hard to argue with some of the suggestions (especially the dungeness crab), but when I was growing up my favorite after school snack was good sourdough and peanut butter.

                          It's whack...British slang for "a lot of."

                                      French toast is a great idea. Try it with cream cheese and orange marmalade spread on like a sandwich and then dipped in egg. Awesome!!!
