Rye bread is great for breakfast as being high in fibre it is sure to keep the hunger pangs at bay till lunch. It goes beautifully with eggs, avocado, bacon or simply toasted and spread with a little butter. We also love it with peanut butter, topped with fresh fruit or berries.
For lunch try it with smoked salmon and cream cheese or as a base to a Plaughman’s sandwich. The nutty flavour and the chewier texture also make it a great accompaniment to a warming bowl of soup or a salad.
How to keep rye bread
We recommend storing your bread in a paper bag or in a clean linen towel in a dry cool place away from direct sunlight. Most light rye breads will keep for 2-3 days if stored properly, heavier ryes will keep for longer – up to 6 days. Rye breads also freezes well.
With stale rye bread you can make a delicious snack – rye fries. Just simply cut the slices up in long finger-like shapes, fry them in oil and then sprinkle them with salt and crushed garlic. You can also add grated cheese, your favourite spices or herbs to make it even more delicious! This is the most popular and famous snack for beer in the Baltics!
