Olympics Entertaining at Home: Arnold/Oroweat Official Bread Sponsor of the 2012 Olympics



Olympic fever is heating up this summer as the Opening Ceremonies for the London 2012 Olympic Games are quickly approaching on Friday, July 27.  Did you know that the official bread of the Olympic is Arnold/Oroweat?  They are my favorite go to bread for all my meals that include a bread product.  I truly love it for the taste, quality, calories and the variety.  As the Official Bread Supplier of Team U.S.A., Arnold, Brownberry, Oroweat Breads is excited to share the below tasty tea sandwich recipes as well as tips for throwing your own English tea party with flair or you can just ask my mom since she's from England.

Tips on how to throw an English Tea Party:
  1. Start with the table and arrange a nice tablecloth to set the tone for your food (Gingham is popular in London).
  2. Place your finger foods on a cake stand in the center of the table. Popular finger foods include scones, tarts and tea sandwiches.
  3. When making the tea sandwich, think dainty. It’s important start with a good base, like Arnold®/Brownberry®/Oroweat® Health-full® 10 Grain breads. Top with a light layer of condiment, preferred sandwich meat, and a thin slice of cucumber or watercress. Top with the remaining bread. Trim the crusts and cut into quarters.
  4. Remember, events like Olympics viewing parties are not an excuse to disregard healthy eating. Eat nutritiously during all the fun by choosing Arnold®/Brownberry®/Oroweat® Breads to still get fiber and whole grain goodness.
