It's almost Valentine's Day, so why not treat your loved ones to a delicious Strawberry and Cream sandwich? It's a romantically themed lunchtime treat that the kids will love too, perfect for a half term picnic.
Roberts Bakery sent me a loaf of their thick sliced Soft and Fluffy White Bread and some heart shaped cutters so I could try out some for my family.
4 slices of Roberts Soft and Fluffy White Loaf
8-10 ripe strawberries
1 tub of cottage cheese, ricotta or cream cheese
Handful of rocket leaves
Ground black pepper
Cut four big heart shapes from the sliced bread.
Cut two small hearts from the centre of two of the large hearts.
Lay out the two whole heart shaped and put some rocket on the.
Drain the cottage cheese and add a generous layer on top.
Slice the strawberries and arrange on top.
Season with black pepper.
Put the cut-out heart shaped bread slices on top to finish the sandwich.
Strawberries and black pepper is a very interesting combination - well worth a try! For children you could use jam, cream cheese and strawberries to make a sweeter sandwich, using the same heart shaped cutters to make it look really pretty.
