Blog PostBrands we loveSurprising but delicious recipes made with bread to enjoy this summer

June 4, 2021

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of summertime on the horizon. Stuffing your winter jacket far into the back of the closet, dusting off your favourite pair of sunglasses, the feeling of your flip flops clacking on the sidewalk, and, most importantly, all of your plans to make and eat delicious food while basking in the white-hot sun. After the particularly long winter we’ve had, there’s one word in everybody’s lips this go-around: more. More fun, more laughter, more experiences, and more incredible food. 

If you are in need of new and exciting ways to spice it up this year, it might be time to turn to the unassuming unsung hero that is bread. Bread is so pervasive in our society that we take it for granted. Still, it really has what it takes to be the foundation of many incredible, fun dishes, many of which are totally unexpected. With that, we’ve compiled some fantastic ideas that are perfect for summertime snacking, courtesy of our friends at Little Northern Bakehouse. They produce unbelievably tasty Certified gluten-free baked goods made from only the best Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients. Their vigour, combined with their attention to detail, beautifully comes together in their selection of loaves, bagels, artisan pizza crusts, buns, and more.
