We’re Reinventing the Sandwich and Using the Bread As the FILLING!

Our minds are officially blown. Bread on the inside of our sandwich? Yes, it’s true. And you know what that means? A) They’re low calorie and low carb (if that’s what you’re into), but you can still enjoy some bread. After all, who doesn’t love bread (especially these no-knead bread recipes)? B) There’s more of the good stuff on the outside — think smoked salmon, pastrami or roast ham shavings. C) It’s just a brilliant idea, frankly. Enjoy them for lunch or cut them into smaller cubes and serve them at your summer gathering. Since we’re going a little crazy on the sandwich idea, why not go whole hog and throw a party, and add these sandos to your summer party essentials list?

Ingredients:

Serves 2 for lunch or makes 24 party bites

— 1 small cucumber

— 1/2 cup cream cheese

— 4 slices of bread

— 6-8 slices beetroot

— 8 slices smoked salmon

— zest of one lemon

Instructions:

1. Cut the cucumber in half. Slice 1 of the pieces into long slices. Use a peeler to peel thin slices off the other piece of cucumber.

2. Spread the cream cheese on 2 slices of bread.

3. Arrange the sliced cucumber on 1 of the slices. Put the beetroot slices on one half of the other slice and layer smoked salmon onto the other half. Top each slice with the 2 other slices of bread.

4. Cut the crusts off the bread, then cut each sandwich widthwise into 6 fingers.

5. Roll 1 of the sandwich fingers in a slice of smoked salmon. Lay out 4 slices of the peeled cucumber, making sure they overlap. Roll another sandwich finger in the cucumber slices.

6. Trim the edges if necessary, then cut each of the fingers in 2. Repeat with the remaining sandwich fingers.

7. Serve immediately. The salmon-wrapped sandwiches can be made a few hours ahead and wrapped, then stored in the refrigerator. The cucumber-wrapped sandwiches will only last 1-2 hours before the bread starts to go soggy.

Cut the cucumber in half. Slice one of the pieces into long slices. Use a peeler to peel thin slices off the other piece of cucumber.

Cut the crusts off the bread, then cut each sandwich widthwise into six fingers.

Roll one of the sandwich fingers in a slice of smoked salmon. Lay out four slices of the peeled cucumber, making sure they overlap. Roll another sandwich finger in the cucumber slices.
