Love the idea of building a Gingerbread House ... but don’t really have much of a sweet tooth? Well we have just the thing for you!
Introducing the Salami & Cheese ‘Gingerbread’ House - the awesome savoury alternative for anyone who prefers a bit of gouda over gingerbread any day of the week!
The house is made by using a large loaf of uncut, day-old bread - cut into the shape of a house and then moulded together using toothpicks. Once the basic house shape is assembled, it’s then just a case of decorating it with rolls and slices of all your favourite cheese and deli meats, and then adding some cucumber and tomato garnish for a little garden.
The meats and cheeses are secured using toothpicks - some cut down to size where needed. And just like with a normal gingerbread house, you can let your imagination run wild to create salami roof tiles and streaky bacon front doors.
Love it! The house has already captured the attention of hundreds on social media.
'Oh my, give me this and good cheese anytime over sweets. Mmmm yummy,' said one. 'Now this is my type of gingerbread house!' said another.
Added a third: 'Now this is a Gingerbread House I actually want to make! But I'd probably eat all the cheese and salami before it made it on the roof!'
We feel your pain!
