What is ciabata? Ciabata is an Italian white bread. It is a long broad and flat bread which is baked in many variations. It is the “baguette” of Italy though ciabata is broader than the baguette in France. Ciabata bread are widespread here in Germany. As the Germans are not fond of eating white bread, so the bakers baked ciabata with rye flour. Ciabata rye bread is more healthier than made with white flour. It tastes more richer and heartier than the white bread.
Ciabata rye bread is very filling and so I mostly used this for making sandwiches for our brunch during weekends. I have made a lot of variations in making rye bread sandwiches and I will share you some of these in this post.
Ciabata Rye Bread Sandwiches Variations: It is cut lenghtwise:
- The lower part is brushed with cheese spread. Then filled with salami, gouda cheese, tomato slices with salt and pepper and decorated with mint leaves. (Photo above)
- The lower part is with butter or margarine. Then filled with lettuce leaf, tomato slices, boiled egg and cucumber slices. Sprinkled with salt and white pepper powder.
- The lower half rye bread with tomato cheese spread and top with tomato slices. Sprinkled with salt, white pepper powder or chili powder and mint leaves. (Photo below)
- The lower half brushed with olive oil, then tomato, gherkins and boiled egg slices on top of the oil. Spiced with salt, pepper powder and basil leaves slices.
- The lower half spread with margarine, then add lettuce leaf, leftover chicken meat flakes and pineapple chunks.
- The lower half spread with cheese spread, then tuna flakes with salt and pepper and top it with miracle whip or mayonnaise and pieces of orange chunks.
- The lower half spread with margarine, then ham and some Sauerkraut on top.
These variations are all covered with the upper top of the ciabata rye bread before serving. There is no limitation what to fill in this bread. Of course you can fill this with nougat cream, honey or just green leafy vegetables. Just create something you love. Enjoy brunching!
