Pandesal or Salt Bread

I love Salt Bread which is also known as Pandesal (pan-de-sal in Spanish)

Early in the morning - around 4 a.m., I would hear some sound coming from boys riding on their bikes with their boxes filled with this type of bread.

This bread serves as the breakfast for most of the people in our place. Ideally, it is served with a cup of coffee and cheese.

Some of the fillings you could apply on this bread:

  • Sardines
  • Mayonnaise
  • Cheese
  • Peanut butter
  • Strawberry Jam
  • Coconut Jam

One could also create a pizza out of this bread by using the following ingredients: melted cheese, pizza sauce, pineapple bits, bell pepper, mushrooms, white onions, and back pepper.

Looks so delicious! I normally eat crispy baguettes but they don't compete with the real French baguette-yours look lovely also..

I wish I had an easy way to get fresh baked bread here, that sounds so good in the mornings

I love pandesal and the kids too. Right now we had our breakfast and pandesal was on the table with scrambled eggs, butter, cheese and other palaman available in the fridge! Happy breakfast! :)

Have never had salt bread, but do love a salt bagel.

Pan de Sal has become a staple food for us Filipinos especially for breakfast. My favourite filling would be cheese, hotdog or ham and of course, sardines!
