Whether a long, lazy lunch or grab-and-go picnic is on the cards, our Light Bites & Lunches range make meal planning in summer simple. From Mediterranean pasta and paninis to classic cheese and chutney combinations, there’s something for every day – come rain or shine.
Quiches and Omelettes
Our creamy Quiche Lorraine is spot on for a delicious lunch – or tempting by the slice as a snack. It combines a silky, savoury filling of Cheddar cheese, ham, bacon and onion, with a crisp shortcrust pastry base. Or if it’s tea for two, choose the double Cheese & Ham Omelette pack.
Tired of the same old sandwiches? Try one of our stone-baked paninis instead. There’s a herby Pesto, Mozzarella and Sundried Tomato Panini that will transport you straight to Italy, while the Chilli, Chicken and Cheddar Panini will have your taste buds singing. Simply defrost and tuck straight in. Or, if you can wait, pop it in the oven to warm through – making it meltingly delicious.
Potatoes and Sandwich Fillers
White bread or granary? Triangles or squares? When it comes to sandwiches, often DIY is best. Our creamy, mildly spiced Coronation Chicken and summery Tuna & Sweetcorn in mayonnaise liven up sandwiches. They double up as tasty jacket potato toppers, too.
Cold Meats & Prawns
Tender meat from a family-run butchery and carefully chosen herbs combine to create a Pork Meatloaf that’s full of flavour. For an extra dose of savoury notes, opt for our Pork & Bacon Meatloaf. We source the ingredients from our farm partners, seasoning with pork’s best friend, sage. Both come thickly carved, making them perfect for popping in a picnic hamper or between our sliced brown bread, which is frozen so you can use as much or as little as you like. If you fancy a little fish instead, our no-fuss cold water prawns are proving popular. Add a dollop of velvety mayonnaise and some crisp lettuce leaves for a cool, classic prawn cocktail.
Mini Cold Salads
Move over Iceberg lettuce – these are salads, with a twist. Try the zesty, Asian-inspired Tuna & Bean Salad. Spice things up (just a touch) with the aromatic Indian notes swirling through our Mini Chicken Rice Salad. Or choose a herby, cheese-topped Mini Pesto Pasta Salad for a delicious dose of La Dolce Vita.
Small enough for lunch but big on flavour, reach for one of our mini pasta dishes when it’s time for something light yet warming. Mini Chicken, Pea & Parmesan Pasta comes in an indulgent Madeira- and cider-laced cream. A hint of mustard and bay marries beautifully with the Cheddar cheese in our Mini Cheese & Broccoli Pasta. While Mini Macaroni Cheese And Pulled Ham turns a traditional Italian recipe on its head with the addition of English ham hock. It’s easy to see why our customer reviewers have given these meals a five-star rating.
Cheese, Biscuits & Chutneys
Either for a quick snack or a no-prep leisurely lunch, cheese and biscuits brighten any day. Put together a cheeseboard using Cathedral City Sliced Mature Cheddar or smooth yet tangy Heritage Danish Blue. Add some Jacob’s Cream Crackers or up the crunch with Ryvita Crispbread Original. Then top it all off with zingy Piccalilli or ploughman’s favourite Farmhouse Pickle.
Time For Tea
From elevenses to an afternoon pick-me-up, a sweet treat may be just your cup of tea. Pop the kettle on and take your pick from our fluffy chocolate and blueberry muffins, or the quintessential summertime Strawberry Gateau. If you need a chocolate fix, try our much-loved Black Forest Gateau. Of course, when temperatures rise, there’s nothing quite like a smooth scoop of Clotted Cream Vanilla Ice Cream.
So whether you’re out and about or relaxing at home this summer, we’ve got plenty of enticing dishes on the menu to help keep lunchtimes fresh and flavoursome. Enjoy.
