The Whole Rye Double Sandwich is a German snack which is healthy. In Germany we call sandwiches “Schnittchen” or “Belegtes Brot”, in some regions they call it “Stulle” or “Butterbrot”.
It is the ideal snack or a substitute for a lunch. But in Germany we like to have this kind of dishes for dinner. There’s a saying: Breakfast is like for an emperor; lunch is like for a king; dinner is like for a homeless. That means less food in the evening. It has become quite the opposite and dinners are big. If you like to try this sandwich use the bread from Delba which is Made in Germany (see below). Happy Cooking!
