I have a friend who is a cab driver. A long time ago, when taking me to work one morning, he introduced me to Babari bread. I fell in love. Barbari bread is a fluffy, flat Iranian bread with sesame seeds on top. It is wonderful with butter and honey in the morning, or a quick lunch of Barbari bread and cheese. The loaf is flat and long, and often the checker at the store will fold it in half to fit in your grocery bag – it doesn’t hurt it. Barbari bread, because it has no preservatives will dry out rather quickly. If it does, cut it up and use if for croûtons, bread crumbs or stuffing.

This morning, as I was looking for something to make for breakfast and not wanting to heat up my kitchen, I thought it was be very good stuffed. It was, Spane had four pieces!

You really need a good electric knife to slice the bread cross wise. I have a wonderful electric knife that never gets used to meat. It gets used for slicing breads and cakes. Trust me on this one – you want to get one of these knives.

  • 1/2 container Alta Dena or other good whipped cream cheese

You could use other preserves or marmalade if you wish.
