Sourdough is such a delight and thankfully, easy to get hold of if you’re not one for meticulously nurturing a starter. It’s the basis for so many breakfast recipes, grilled cheese recipes or, as you’re probably aware, it’s lovely as it is with a bit of butter!
This piece is ready to take you forwards a step. We’ve got a compilation of some simply gorgeous toppings and ideas for a sourdough loaf. They are SERIOUSLY incr-edible (pun totally intended). So if you need inspiration or something quick to whip up with your leftovers, we urge you to read on and explore these recipes by some extraordinarily talented bloggers.
1. BAKED EGG BOATS
By cutting a channel out of your sourdough baguettes you can fill them with something yummy. Take this recipe as an example: scrambled eggs! Wowza. They’re made with cream cheese, gruyere, fried pancetta and baked to achieve crispy perfection.
2. SOURDOUGH GRILLED CHEESE WITH OLIVE & CAPERS
We can practically taste the delicious contrast of the salty capers and olive with the cheese. What a great idea! Using nutty rye sourdough adds fantastic texture and crunch to the finished piece. How many do you reckon you could eat?
3. CARAMELISED ONION SQUASH & RICOTTA TARTINES
Squash roasted with chilli and lemon is mashed with caramelised onion, cider vinegar and maple syrup! All of that is spread on sourdough over a thin layer of ricotta. This recipe is beautiful for breakfast or a clever vegetarian canape or starter idea.
4. SOURDOUGH PITA POCKETS
How about a quick sourdough recipe? Maybe that’s why you came on to this article? We love the idea of creating little sourdough pita pockets for lunch. If you immediately eat after baking, you’re guaranteed the best results.
5. ROASTED GARLIC GUACAMOLE & SERRANO HAM
This summer, turn your avo on toast into a Spanish themed plate. It’s been labelled ‘the snack of the century’ and does indeed look delicious enough to sink your teeth into for a mid-afternoon nibble.
6. BRIE, FIG & APPLE GRILLED CHEESE
We’re featuring another grilled cheese because we’re totally in love with the colour the sourdough develops as it toasts! This one’s a little less heavy than the previous with flavours and fruit of the summer. Of course, you can put whatever you like in yours. Don’t forget to share what you make!
7. GARLIC SHIITAKE MUSHROOM BREAKFAST TOAST
If you’re in need of a healthy, filling brunch then don’t bypass this recipe! Save it into your bookmark for later. Mushrooms are very easy to whip up but by following a simple recipe like this, you’ll find the perfect herbs and cheeses to pair them with for an enhanced meal.
8. CHIVE AND CHILLI PRAWN TOAST SOLDIERS
Egg and soldiers got a nautical twist; these particular soldiers must be in the Navy! It’s an ingenious idea to use sourdough to make prawn toast style dippers and we’re completely on board with it. The more things to dip into egg, the better.
