Waking up each morning and thinking of what to prepare for
breakfast is a big question mark. On some days, this task is easy if there is
idli / dosa batter ready in the fridge. My job is also easy when I plan the
night before. Sometimes when I put up this question to my family members, I
don’t always get an answer that I need. Most of the times it is – ‘Prepare
anything that is easy for you’!!! Though they eat anything on the plate without
grumbling, I am aware that they don’t like prefer to have the same menu over
and over again. And yes, there are day's when I don't feel like eating the regular breakfast!So as I was saying, coming up with a different breakfast menus each day is a big issue.
Today,while the rest of the family had Dosa,Lil angel wanted her favorite Nutella on toast and I made this simple sandwich for breakfast...
Now that I mentioned sandwich,this post is specially for the Blogging Marathon # 21 which starts today and as you would have guessed by now,I have
chosen the theme – Sandwiches and wraps’.
is one of my favorite ingredient and I love to experiment with it. A few days back when I purchased a pack of Quaker oats, I saw 2 recipes on the box.One was a buttermilk recipe and the other was a sandwich recipe. I made a mental note of the sandwich recipe but half of the recipe faded from my memory as soon as I threw the box away, so this is my interpretation of that dish...
The oats Veggie sandwich that I am posting today belongs to the 'open sandwich' category.This type of sandwich is supposed to have originated somewhere around the 6th - 16th centuries.Open sandwiches are also known by the names - Open faced sandwich, Ulrich Sandwich, Bread baser , tartine....
