As we considered the extension of hospitality in breaking bread earlier this week, we began to talk about ways of using the ordinary to make a guest feel special.
Rustic bread and on hand ingredients might end up as a sandwich, but with a few minutes in the toaster, they are transformed into tartines! Nothing welcomes Friday like a toast!
Here are some family favorite combinations. Fresh herbs and greens are thrown in as available.
Apple + brie + meat (turke, chicken, or ham)
Roasted tomatoes + cheese + balsamic
Avocado + bacon + eggs
Smoked salmon + cream cheese or mascarpone
Berries + sweet cheese (Cream cheese, mascarpone, or ricotta)
Brie + pistachios + honey
These websites will get you started creating your own favorite combinations!
