Let’s talk snacking! It’s not off limits; in fact, sometimes it’s necessary to snack throughout the day. I always feel great having a little bite of something in the mid-morning or afternoon. The Scandinavians and the British have tea time and dedicated coffee breaks every day just so they can snack away, come mid-afternoon. It’s a necessity, a staple of their society and culture.
Because I’ve never been a day long coffee drinker, when I need a little boost in the caffeine department, I’ve started drinking tea in the afternoon. And as you might imagine, tea inspires tea-time snacks. Sometimes sweet, sometimes savory, but always flatbread and always wonderful.
This flatbread recipe takes a page out of the snack book and makes a fabulous light meal or shared snack. Smoked salmon draped over crisp flatbread with your choice of light and interesting toppings; there’s nothing better! And no need to cut the crusts off of fussy little sandwiches; this is flatbread. From end to end, it’s pure delicious.
Dust off that teapot and brew up your favorite darjeeling or oolong, then make some open-faced flatbread sandwiches to accompany it. I promise your afternoon will sail by!
