Wonderful All-In-One Meal

by Anukriti Parsai

It is really amazing and quite diverting when you concentrate on how food and cuisine have evolved thru time and different cultures. Take, for instance, a simple bread recipe - how it was unleavened or without the use of yeast, to soft and flaky french croissants; or easy fowl or meat, which used to be just speared and hunted then roasted over an open fire to the now more advanced, saucy, spicy viands cooked in the most boring and complicated manners! Well, here is a delightful Sausage Bread Recipe that's a delicious and convenient cross between the two divides. It is easy enough to make and has the savoir faire to meet the palates of the accomplished diner. It is an acceptable snack for children (dietary-wise) as it has high fibre, protein-heavy content and is so tantalizing that youngsters will easily grow a preference for this snack. For regular housewives who are on a humble budget, the makings for this fare are freely available and, more importantly, cheap at your local marketplace or butcher shop. For the busy, career professionals, this is an outstanding must-have in the cupboard for a fast snack-on-the-go as it can be prepared in around an hour yet consumed within the day. Enjoy!
