So I was given the #EasterMeals challenge to make something using leftovers and this delightful Ecce Panis bread. Challenge accepted! I had to sit down and think about this one because to me it had to be straight from the fridge except for the bread, I bought that for the challenge.
It worked out well that we had fish filets for dinner earlier this week because that makes it a little easier to create something delicious from our leftovers. So I started at a fish sandwich, Tilapia to be exact. I cooked the fish according to the package.
The bread cooks at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes and smells wonderful! Bread, cheese and bacon are my favorite foods so having fresh bread without making it myself is a treat! Doesn’t it just make you want to eat it? Mmhmm! When it came out I sliced it and then cut it in half for my sandwich bread.
I had a Mommy’s Night Out the weekend before so I had what was left of a cheese ball in the fridge and wanted to incorporate it into my sandwich. I didn’t think cheddar would be good on Tilapia but I would give cream cheese a try for the sake of the challenge. Boy am I glad I did! It was so good! All I did was scoop some out and put it into the microwave so I could spread it on the bread.
I am super picky so this is the sandwich I ate and the sandwich above is the one my Husband ate, yes I took a bite out of it before I realized I should take a picture. He liked his and said it was hard to eat because it was tall and I was in love with mine and ate 2! I regretted it later because I had that too full feeling but it was good going down!

Stay tuned for me Breschetta recipe that I made with this bread too! I made it for Daddy Michael’s birthday party so you will have to wait until after this weekend. I tasted it and it is well worth the wait because I don’t like tomatoes but this was delicious. I was trying to save Daddy Michael a few taster bites but he took too long and I ate them myself!
I leave you with this funny picture! Michael decided he wanted to cook as well so he grabbed the Rice Krispies off of the shelf and dumped them everywhere! Then he proceeded to slobber on his hand and get the Rice Krispies stuck to it. It was adorable but a big fat mess!
