Make me a sandwich...

sulbin Jan 2, 2011 05:09 PM

I am gluten free and recently bought cinnamon raisin bread. I'm happy to eat it toasted with butter, but I'm also interested in incorporating it into a sandwich.

Sweet or savory.

Other, non-sandwich uses welcome.

Thanks in advance!

    Thanks to all who replied. I'm happy to see so many sweet and salty ideas. My picky husband is even excited to try some of these ideas.

    I, of course, am happy to try many of them. Gouda, Bacon, simple chicken salad, I will have a happy tummy for weeks!

      I think thinly-sliced ham and swiss or gruyere would be great grilled on this; or a curried turkey salad with some currants or green grapes tossed in - or just several good cheeses, grilled.

        Poof, you're a sandwich.

        (sorry, had to, your headline is an old family joke)

          Don't you dare apologize. Too funny.

          Believe it or not, tuna fish works well on cinnamon raisin - I like the tangy with the sweet.

                Cream cheese, pear and a blue sounds great. Never thought of it! Thanks.

                  +1 for maplesugar's suggestions.

                  - PB or almond butter & a drizzle of maple syrup or honey. hold the jelly.
                  - french toast
                  - grilled cheese - made with cream cheese (yes, cream cheese) and toasted walnuts
                  - Monte Cristo - try it with pear in place of the apple too: http://www.quickandsimple.com/recipef...
                  - bread pudding
                  - smoked turkey, avocado & sprouts. goat cheese optional.
                  - turkey, apple, lettuce, mayo & walnuts (a turkey Waldorf sandwich!)

                    French Toast was the first thing that came to my mind. The second was toasted with cream cheese!

                    I like chicken salad with some greens on cinnamon raisin (crazy maybe but I like the sweet/salty thing...kinda like turkey and cranberry sauce), or maybe shredded chicken, some apple and some brie.

                      Cinnamon raisin bread makes for a great pb and j. Sweet on sweet.

                        Non-sandwich use: Butter the bread up, cut into small squares, bake. Nice sweet croutons for a salad.

                          Though I make my own croutons, I would have never thought if using this type of bread! Thanks!

                          Smoked bacon (cooked tender crisp but not too crisp) with sliced ripe avocado on toasted and buttered cinnamon raisin bread. A light spread of simple mayonnaise dressing is enough to finish it.

                            Crispy bacon, thinly sliced apple, smoked gouda, spicy mustard: toasted

                            Turkey/chicken salad with toasted walnuts, shredded carrrot/cabbage: hot or cold

                            Grilled pimento cheese with ham
