7 Bread Recipes You Can Make Everyday in 7 Minutes (Or Less)

As we embrace the digital world, the more we become busier in our lives. Since we are transitioning to everything with just “a tap away,” (like online fast food deliveries), we often neglect the satisfaction in making scrumptious meals for our family.

But you know what? I don’t blame you. As a mother of four, cooking is just one of the hats I wear every day. I do get tired too, but, just because we’re preoccupied doesn’t mean we can’t make a quick and indulging meal, right? Realistically, there are gazillion quick recipe ideas for us to try. But, these bread recipes should definitely be in your arsenal too.   You better roll-up your sleeves and start reading this article. Let’s start reading them, shall we?

Screen Shot 2018 01 25 at 2.52.28 PM

Ideally, breakfast is vital because it breaks the overnight fasting period. But lunch and dinner are equally important too. Mondays could be the busiest day of the week, so break the “no-breakfast-so-busy-Monday” habit by preparing this quick corned beef with cheesy egg de sal sandwich!


  • Gardenia pan de sal
  • Eggs (2)
  • Cheese (any kind but we used mozzarella in this video)
  • Corned Beef (canned)
  • Oil (we used olive oil but any oil will do)

How to make it: beat the eggs then set aside. In a small pan, put oil and then cook the egg. When it’s nearly done put the cheese and set aside. On the same pan, put a teaspoon of oil and start sautéing the onion and corned beef.

Time for preparation and cooking: 7 minutes


Voila! Your CornDeSal is ready!

Choose Healthy Tuesdays– H.L.T (Ham, Lettuce, and Tomato) Sandwich

Bacon is a bit expensive. So, to avoid getting broke, we’re going to use ham for the classic HLT sandwich.

So, for this sandwich you’ll need:

  • Gardenia Classic White Bread Thick Slice
  • Ham (any brand/kind)
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Cheddar Cheese (Any variant will do)
  • Butter

How to make it: Cook the ham in butter instead of oil. This is to make it tastier, so you don’t need to put mayonnaise or any dressing. Get one slice and place it on a plate. Put the ham, lettuce, and tomato, on top of the other.

Time for preparation and cooking: 5 minutes
