When I am in the mood for sandwiches, I would buy a 24-slices loaf of bread and cut off every sides of the bread. I cannot stand sandwiches with the brown edges still intact. It is not sandwiches to me.
Normally, if we have a potluck, some parents will bring a whole tub of uncut bread and the kids normally eat that last. But if there are parents who bring nicely cut sandwiches, the kids will walloped them.
I like my sandwiches all pretty and clean. Circumcised. LOL. No brown skin left.
And that’s not all when I make sandwiches. I will ask my little boy if he likes his sandwich in triangle shapes like a panty hahahaha or rectangle or tiny squares. Trust me, if you give a kid that choice, he will enjoy his meal much more. Of course, it is not an extra chore as you just need to cut it the way he likes. Making the sandwich smaller means it is easier for tiny hands.
The above is a club sandwich from some restaurant ‘cos I never fill my sandwich with so much fillings.
So, my question is – What do you do with those edges of the bread that you cut off? I usually :
1) Dry them in the sun and make bread crumbs. It is delicious when mixed with minced meat and turned into meat balls. It is also good as coating for deep frying.
2) I make a quick bread and butter pudding by soaking the edges with a mixture of egg and milk, plus sugar and some fruits or raisins. Bake and it tastes really good.
3) Feed the monkeys. It is illegal to feed monkeys over here but we still did it ‘cos the monkeys are smarter than our municipal councillors. They stay out of the gazetted -No feeding monkey area and eat!
