Is your family tired of the same ol’ sandwich? Even the most classic sandwich combinations, like the iconic PB&J or grilled cheese, can get a little boring. Razz up your next sandwich and find your inspiration with these recipe ideas below.
Take a note from our friend, Katie Morford, MS, RD in her cookbook, Rise and Shine: Better Breakfasts for Busy Mornings and give your “PB&J the breakfast treatment by toasting it in a waffle iron, which acts something like a Panini press.” The result is a crispy, crunchy exterior and ooey-gooey center. Opt for frozen raspberries in place of jam to cut back on the sugar in favor of a brighter, sweet-tart raspberry flavor. Take this sandwich on-the-go — “either for breakfast or wrapped up and tucked into a lunch box.”
Think of a classic post-Thanksgiving turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce. You can bring back this flavor favorite year-round by creating your own turkey sandwich with frozen raspberries. On one side of the sandwich, simply spread thawed and smashed frozen raspberries, and then drizzle with maple syrup for a touch of satisfying sweetness.
Elevate your grilled cheese sandwich with raspberries! It’s sweet, tart, and savory all at the same time. It’s perfection. Either take our word for it, or make one for yourself!
Hop on board the “trendy toast” bandwagon and try this elevated version of toast – suitable for breakfast, a snack, or dessert. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese, a drizzle of honey, and vanilla – spread evening on the bread and top with a hearty scoop of Razz Crush!
Made from fully ripe, all natural sweet-tart frozen red raspberries, Razz Crush results when raspberries are slightly thawed and gently mashed with a rolling pin.
