Still have a few more NYC/BOS posts to share with you, but in the meantime, let’s whisper a little about sandwiches. Everyone loves a good sandwich and to me, what makes a good sandwich is great bread. Sure, the spreads are important, cheese, deli meats, and for me, a mix of herbs and greens make the sandwich. Below you’ll see a few progressive pictures of my sandwich making. Wonder what bread I used? I’ll tell you it’s gluten free and delicious, so scroll to the bottom and discover the bread love!

As a sandwich lover, I had the chance to taste test this Millet-Chia bread by Udi’s Gluten Free Foods and below you can read some facts about millet and chia from the Udi’s blog:

Millet seed is an ancient grain first cultivated in China around 4500BC.  It is high in protein, fiber, magnesium, and phosphorus, all of which are important for certain functions in our bodies. 

An ancient grain stemming back to Mayan and Aztec cultures around 3500 BC, the teeny chia seed’s name literally means “strength.” This name is fitting, given its concentrated nutritional content.  Chia seeds have a mild, nutty flavor and can be added to a variety of foods to boost nutritional content, such as hot cereal, vegetables, sauces, and baked goods (such as breads and cookies).

The chia seeds add the perfect texture to this bread, and you feel like you’re definitely eating something deliciously healthy. It toasted perfectly on a buttered cast iron skillet, and was strong enough to hold up to various ingredients. Ingredients that I think make one of the best sandwiches:

  • Cheese: One of my favorite cheeses to use in hot sandwiches is mozzarella, because of how gorgeous it melts and it’s like the glue that holds my sandwich together;
  • Deli Meat: Another favorite, Honey Baked Ham. The balance of sweet and salty is joy in my mouth;
  • Greens: Have you ever had Pho? One of the things I love the most about it is the herb salad on the side, which I recreated here by tossing some fresh greens with cilantro. This adds a burst of flavor to an otherwise normal sandwich;
  • Spread: Sriracha and Mayonnaise. Go make it right now and try it, it will change you world. Want to add a touch of sweetness to it? Drizzle in a little honey!

This sandwich was the perfect lunch using Udi’s Millet-Chia Bread. You can purchase it online here and check your local markets as well! If you’d like, like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter for updates, new recipes, products, and just an all around fantastic gluten free community.
