Tip Top Hi Protein Sandwich Ideas

As many of you will be aware, George Weston Foods has introduced a new range of white bread, Tip Top Hi Protein.
The bread comes in two varieties, Tip Top High Protein – a “smooth” bread – and Tip Top Hi Protein with Grains – an easy way to introduce kids to light grain breads.
Two slices of Hi Protein bread deliver more than 10g of protein from oats, soy and wheat flour1. It’s also a great source of fibre and has B vitamins. It contains no artificial flavours or colours. It also contains fewer carbohydrates than standard white bread.

While choosing a bread that makes everyone happy is one thing, what to put in your sandwiches is the next dilemma and as any parent knows, tastes can vary from day to day.

With this in mind we have put together some super tasty sandwich combinations that will hopefully provide something for everyone!

50g tuna in spring water, drained

2 slices Tip Top Hi Protein bread

Combine tuna and mayonnaise in small bowl and mash with a fork until smooth.
Trim the crusts from the bread and gently roll with a rolling pin to flatten slightly.
Place a layer of lettuce down the centre of each slice of bread and then top with tuna mixture.  Roll the bread tightly to enclose the filling.  Add a little dab of mayonnaise if needed to help seal the bread at the join.
Wrap bread tightly in lunch wrap or plastic clingfilm and refrigerate for up to 30 minutes before slicing each sandwich in half.
