7 Ways To Use Maltese Bread That Will Have You Salivating

Make ours a double...


Okay, we can safely say that there is no one living on the Maltese archipelago who wouldn't give their first born for an epic Maltese-bread-binge. There is, quite literally, nothing better that one could eat on this planet. It's soft, it's crunchy, it's salty, it's light, it's warm. It's a giant food-gasp. 

And just in case anyone is tired of eating it au natural (they must be crazy). Here's a few ways they could use the magical ħobża Maltija in a different way. (Just replace 'Maltese bread' whoever you see the word sourdough and you're good to go).

1. As breakfast bruschetta

We already know that Maltese bread is perfect for making bruschetta with, but this recipe from Nigella Lawson just adds that extra touch of freshness to a time-old fave. Imagine impressing your new boyfriend/girlfriend with this breakfast-in-bed. (Don't do it, no amount of amazing love-making is worth the crumbs...)

Don't settle for the staple galletti to go with this amazing hummus recipe. Toast some Maltese bread and taste the carby goodness in all its glory. 'Yum' doesn't quite cover this.
