When most people think of how to use Just Jan's Spreads, they immediately think of toast or PB&J. But we like to think our spreads uses are as diverse as your imaginings, we know restaurants that use the key lime curd on a sandwich. So don't be afraid to experiment and come up with your own ideas and recipes. Today is National Sandwich Day and in honor of that we came up with two fun easy recipes to put a twist on your typical sandwich.
The Cubano Sandwich or Cuban is a well known pork sandwich featuring roasted pork, ham, swiss cheese, dijon mustard and pickles, pressed until the sandwich is thin and crispy. For the Just Jan's version we stripped it down and made something you can prepare in minutes in your kitchen.

Avocado Toast is a great snack or meal depending on what you put on it. We kept this one simple, and it is really delicious.
Just Jan's Mango Avocado Toast
1 slice of french bread
2 tbsp Just Jan's Mango Spread
Salt and Pepper
To begin toast a medium thick slice of french bread. After the bread is toasted to the desired crispness, spread the mango spread over the toast. Set aside.
Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Put the flesh of the avocado in a bowl and simply mash it with a fork. The avocado should become smooth and spreadable.
Next cut a few thin slices of the cheddar cheese, and place them on the toast.
Spread the avocado over the cheese. Sprinkle the avocado with a nice salt such as Maldon, and pepper to taste.
In a medium hot pan, fry one egg until the egg is cooked through without fully cooking the yolk.
When the egg is cooked, place it over the toast, and serve.
