I received a packet of Finn Crisp’s original crispbread in the May Degustabox. I knew straight away that I wanted to do a post about my favourite toppings to put on crispbread, as I’m on a constant quest for a healthier diet.
There are many things you can stick on top of crispbreads, you can make it complicated or simple. I’m a fan of simple, so here are the top 5 things I love to load on top of crispbreads.
1. Cottage cheese and pepper.
Cottage cheese has to be one of the most popular topping crispbread and you can get different types at the supermarket. Herbs, garlic, onion, pineapple, chilli. I’ve even seen cucumber recently! I like to put pepper on also for extra flavour.
2. Cream cheese and piccante peppers.
Just like cottage cheese, cream cheese can come in a variety of different flavours and also lighter, or low flat versions. The one I used was a 50% less fat garlic and herb one. Yummeh.
I could probably eat pate and olives on a daily basis. On a mealy basis, even. I’ve only liked olives for the past year or so. They have to be fresh and I could spend so much money at the olive bar at Morrisons and Tesco.
Although pate is a little on the naughty side, a thin layer is acceptable! Add sliced olives for extra nommyness.
Humous and sun dried tomato
Another typical topping, made a little more exciting by sun dried tomatoes. I don’t like fresh tomatoes, even though I’ve tried to eat them in an attempt to acquire a liking for them but I failed miserably. I do love sun dried tomatoes though and tomato flavoured things.
Layer them over humous for a delicious combo. Again, humous comes in different flavours and often come in reduced flavours for a guilt free treat.
Tuna and cucumber.
Tuna and cucumber is a perfect combo. I put a thin layer of cream cheese on the bottom so it wasn’t too dry.
The amount of things you can put on crispbread is endless. I love things like this because I can have different toppings and different varieties all together, which is good for me as I get bored really easily.
