Topless cheese and pickle sandwich
To reduce the calorie count but not the satisfaction factor of your sandwiches, try going topless! We've been using dense rye pumpernickel-style bread, which takes a bit of getting used to but makes brilliant open-topped sandwiches. It contains no wheat and is very satisfying - and slightly lower in calories than thick-sliced wholegrain bread.
- 1 slice of rye bread
- 1 teaspoon farmhouse pickle or chutney
- 40g sliced half-fat mature cheddar
- 1 slice of lean ham
- 1 sliced tomato
- 2 sliced dill gherkins
- 1 teaspoon of salad cream
Put a slice of rye bread on a plate and spread with 1 teaspoon of farmhouse pickle or chutney. Top with 40g sliced half-fat mature Cheddar and 1 slice of lean ham. Add 1 sliced tomato and 2 sliced dill gherkins. Spoon over 1 teaspoon of salad cream and serve garnished with fresh watercress.
