Hello lovelies, as you may already know I love snack plates and dips, which is why I have great recipes for you today: Finger food with bread. With these creative recipes you can bring some variety to your table and your guests will be amazed. I’m excited that these recipes have been created in a renewed cooperation with Swiss Bread* association. Here you can find the recipes of our last cooperation.
Bread is definitely a basic food for me and my family. We always have it at home. I love to bake my own bread, but I’m always very happy and grateful for the large selection of breads that can be bought in Switzerland. Good quality and a wholesome bread with healthy ingredients is important to me, as well as a production method that still follows traditions.
Today I want to show you with my recipes how creative you can be with bread. Due to spring I have selected the appropriate ingredients. In addition to wild garlic, I also used asparagus, rocket salad and spinach in my creations. It’s going to be colorful, healthy and definitely delicious – all recipes are summarized below.
Bruschetta with asparagus and wild garlic
First there is a classic with a twist, a bruschetta. I did not use Ciabatta, but a Rustico with grains. This goes very well with the aromatic topping of green asparagus, wild garlic and tomatoes. Of course you can also vary the ingredients and use white asparagus or basil.
Bread chips with rosemary and rocket cream cheese
The second creation is bread chips with rosemary and a fine rocket cream cheese. Any bread is suitable for this recipe and it’s also a great recipe to use up old bread. The bread chips are very delicious, very crispy and especially popular with kids. It’s great for dipping with the delicious, spicy cream cheese with rocket. Of course you can also serve veggie sticks with it and so you already have a whole starter plate ready.
Toast rolls with spinach hummus
In the last recipe I was inspired by sushi – yes, this is also possible with bread. The toast rolls were created with this idea, filled with a hummus with the certain green extra and fresh crunchy vegetables. Not only healthy, but also an eye catcher at the next starter menu. It’s great that you can be creative while rolling and use your favorite vegetables.
And here are all 3 recipes for Finger food with bread:
Did you know that not every single piece of bread that you can buy in stores really comes from Switzerland? I have to admit I was quite surprised when I heard this. Therefore double check when buying bread where it comes from, because I think it is especially important in such a traditional craft that you buy regionally.
If you choose Swiss bread, you can be sure that it’s tasty and high-quality baked goods with a regional origin. It also supports the entire value chain, our domestic operations and workforce. Switzerland is a real bread country, because the bread selection is huge: The domestic assortment comprises more than 200 different types of bread and small baked goods. And almost every canton and region today has its own bread.
I hope I was able to inspire you with my recipes and you are already looking forward to your next starter and choose to try one or two. I just can’t snack and dip enough :-). And so do the kids. Their favorite was definitely the bread chips and the toast rolls.
