Rich or fancy spread, that is the question here. I tend to go with fancy and colorful. And most important of all: Tartine sounds nice (better than bread breakfast). You will find lots of varieties of tartine bread or sandwiches in countries where bread is part of the daily food plan.
A few that I can think of are:
Brotstulle – Germany
Sandwich – UK/US and other English speaking countries
Chlebíček – Czech Republic
Smørrebrød- Sweden and Denmark
Bocadillo – Spain
Tartines are allrounders: They are great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All you need is bread and a topping of your choice. I prefer colorful toppings and try to make my tartines healthy. As you can see in the picture, I used avocado, radish, tomato and egg. When I made this tartine I immediately had a good start into the day.
Two tipps that I have for you:
- Toast the bread before you put the topping on it (unless you use very fresh and fluffy bread)
- Use an oily base like butter, olive oil or sour cream
Next time you make your own tartine, do not forget to include colorful and healthy ingredients and you will see how happy this tartine will make you :)
Wishing all of you a good start into the week!
