In addition to wonderful cheese and sausage on your freshly baked bread, make a bread spread for added variety. Most of these spreads are easy to make and serve, even on a weeknight for Abendbrot. Or try them next time you take a brown bag lunch to work, as many can replace the mayonnaise or even stand on their own. You can also freeze some spreads using an ice cream scoop, a perfect amount for a sandwich and it thaws by lunch!
