Transcript:5 Sandwich Bread Substitutes
One of the easiest and most fun ways to jazz up your sandwiches is to use something other than sandwich bread. Hi, I'm Stephanie Gallagher for About.com, and today, I'll show you five creative sandwich bread substitutes.
Rice Cakes Are a Crunchy Sandwich Bread Substitute
Rice cakes make an easy and versatile alternative to bread. They come in all sorts of flavors, and you can spread everything from peanut butter to tuna fish on them. The creamy peanut butter and soft bananas make a nice contrast to the crunch of the rice cakes in these sandwiches.
Tortillas Are a Popular Sandwich Bread Alternative
Tortillas are a popular sandwich bread alternative. And it's easy to see why. You can spread just about anything on a tortilla, and it will be sturdy enough to hold it. Cut your tortilla sandwiches in half to serve.
Rolls and Hamburger Buns Are a Sturdy Sandwich Bread Alternative
Rolls or hamburger buns are another good choice for sandwiches. They work well for make-ahead sandwiches, because they're sturdy and the fillings won't make rolls turn soggy.
Crackers Are Bite-Sized Sandwich Bread Substitutes
Would you believe crackers are my favorite alternative to bread for sandwiches. I pile everything from tuna salad to chicken salad to ham and cheese on crackers. Cracker sandwiches are also great for kids who seem to gravitate toward bite-sized treats.
Frozen Waffles Are a Creative Sandwich Bread Substitute
Frozen waffles make a creative and fun change from sandwich bread. Just thaw and spread with your favorite sandwich fillings. Peanut butter and banana works great. So does Nutella and raspberries.
