Toasted ham and cheese sandwich

Postby Butterfly_Dawn » Tue Jan 24, 2006 2:11 pm

I've just got this huge craving for a toasted cheese and ham sandwich with lashings of yummy meted cheese.

Why on earth would I crave that? I think it's the salt I'm after or maybe the protein. I'll make some mountain bread chips with seasoning and see how I feel after that.

Hi Tegan, the week leading up to my menstrual cycle I have almost unbearable food cravings. I try to satisfy it with a couple of
glasses of icy cold skim milk.

I'll bet if you ate that all that ham and cheese you wouldn't gain any weight but even better if you resist the craving you will have a huge weight loss.

Hi Jenni,

I love Mt/Bread Chips, all I do is spray a little olive oil spray onto the Mt/Bread then sprinkle with your choice of seasoning. I use Herbamare (Sea Salt with Herbs), then place in your microwave for 1 to 2 minutes. Break into pieces and enjoy...........hmmm I think I'll go make some now. :D

I didn't have the toasted sandwich, and was pretty much satisfied with the chips. Then for dinner I had my red bean tacos which have lots of protein and lots of tangy flavour as well as just a little bit of cheeseon top. That got rid of the craving entirely! :D

it's a type of really thin bread, like the wraps that you get around souvlakis, but a little thinner. You can get them at most supermarkets and health foods and they come in a heap of different varieties.

70cal per piece, most of which is carbohydrate(13 g), and only0.4 grams fat.

Compared with:

420kj (I hate it when they give different info) of which there is 6.1g of fat and 9.9g of carbohydrate in one of those 20g school chip packs.

I might have a look for the mountain bread when I shop on Saturday. Can you get them in coles or woolies??? I was thinking about getting it and making it for the kids as a treat. Of course I would pinch some too!!! Sounds very easy just putting it in the microwave. Does it go all crispy like chips then??? And you break them up after they come out of the microwave. I'm sick of the kids eating so much junk. And if I can give them something that is healthy but they don't know it because it's sort of like junk food then that is a bonus. Plus super easy to make!!! My kids eat a lot of fruit and salad but they do love their treats as well. Quite often at this time of the year they are sitting up in the vegie garden eating beans or cucumbers straight off the plants. My son ate beans for breakfast yesterday!!! He went and picked this huge handful of beans and I asked him if that was his breakfast and he said uuuuuummmmmm yep!!! So they do balance the crap with a lot of good food. But if I can just substitute the odd thing for something healthier then I would be happier.

Hi Groovychick,
I couldn't find mountain bread in my local woolies store (perhaps they had run out)
but I definitely found them in Coles - http://www.ausmanufacturers.com.au/mountainbread/

I actually had a go at making these chips out of the microwave but they were not chippy - they were kinda soggy! Oh no what DID I do wrong :shock:
Roger my OH just laughed at me because I was so distressed about it LOL I ended up snacking on two slices of wholemeal toast with a slither of butter!
Cheers

I put mine in the oven (or if you have a convection microwave that will work too). Haven't tried in the microwave myself as the oven works fine, so long as you keep an eye on them so they don't burn.

I get mine at woolies - near the baked goods section where they have the pita breads etc.
