Bread is widely consumed across the globe. It’s a staple on dining tables in many countries! But here in the Philippines, where a proper meal is usually dominated by rice, bread is reserved for a light breakfast or a heavy snack.
One of the most popular bread varieties in the Philippines is loaf bread, more commonly known locally as “tasty bread”. One pack can serve more than one person, so it’s very practical. But if you’re like us, after having our sandwich fix, we usually don’t know what else to do with the rest of the pack.
But there are so many things that you can do with a loaf of bread. If you want to take a break from just applying regular spread, here are some creative recipes for tasty bread that you can make for breakfast or merienda.
WHAT'S COVERED IN THIS GUIDE?
Cheesy French Toast Omelette Sandwich

Monte Cristo Sandwich
