When I think of appetizers, I honestly do not think of Melba snacks. Sure they are really tasty, but what can you do with them other than munch on them? Well quite a bit apparently! I was sent a wonderful assortment of Old London Melba Snacks and Bagel Chips, and even though I have been eating them right out of the box, I am thrilled to learn that they can be used in a variety of recipes. They can not only be used for appetizers, but can be used IN recipes, as a crust, as breadcrumbs, etc. They can also be used in desserts! This really surprised me (and made me a little giddy too!).
After sampling the assortment I received, I understand more how well they will fit into all kinds of recipes. They are crispy and full of flavor. Of course my family helped me with these goodies, so I thought I would share their thoughts as well as my own. Don’t these recipes look divine? You can find them on the Old London Foods Facebook page!
If I had to choose a favorite, that would be hard. I am in love with anything and everything that has sea salt on it, and I’m also a huge garlic fanatic. I think the Garlic & Herb Bagel Chips and the Sea Salt Melba Snacks were my favorites. The only problem is, it is hard to just have a few.
When I think of snacking, I think of crunchy things – they are somehow just more satisfying to me. These fit the bill perfectly! My son preferred the Rosemary & Olive Oil Melba Toast, my husband and daughter liked the Garlic & Herb Bagel Chips the best.
It is a good feeling knowing that I am snacking on something that is all natural and good for me. The Melba Toast and Sea Salt Melba Snacks are whole grain (5 g), very low in calories, and they contain 0 grams of trans fat and contain no cholesterol. Woo hoo! The Bagel Chips are baked and also have 0 grams of trans fat. I am so happy that my family loves these the way I do, and I don’t have to worry about them eating bad things when they snack.
