Tips

  • Serve these as a warm or cold tasty snack.
  • Team with a drink as an Everyday or Select Carefully snack as part of a meal deal.
  • Bread cups are an easy way to provide vegetables while catering for many tastes. Try replacing the ham, corn and cheese mixture for different flavour combinations, such as spinach (or roast pumpkin) and reduced fat feta, chicken (skinless) and mushrooms, baked beans and capsicum, or tuna (in spring water) and chopped onions.
  • Try adding fresh or dried herbs to boost the flavour.
  • If using stale or thicker ‘toast’ sliced bread, lightly roll it with a rolling pin for better results.
