The Honey Sandwich
March 18, 2009
Now that Marks and Spencer have unveiled their own jam sandwich, competitively priced at 75p, I feel certain that the time is ripe for an occasional series on my own favourite sandwiches.
The homemade sandwich is a very personal affair. Since most of us only admit to eating them when we have to – ie for lunch at work – owning up to actually liking them feels like a truly personal revelation. Particularly on a food blog, you know? It sounds kind of slummy. Like telling you that I don’t wear underwear.
But there it is. I do (like sandwiches that is).
And this is my latest favourite.
That’s butter (or Utterly Butterly to be perfectly exact) on granary bread. Plus a thick layer of set honey on one of the slices, and a thin layer of light Tahini on the other.
Tahini is made from sesame seeds and it adds a little chewiness, along with some protein and a rather larger number of calories.
It works, really it does. Try it. And then let me know your own favourite sandwiches.
