How to make Ghanaian Sandwich Chiibom

Last night, during a great conversation with a close friend, we got deep into the world of Ghanaian recipes and the nostalgic feelings they bring. Dining in Ghana isn’t just about eating; it’s like a social orchestra, a family bonding experience where each dish is a carrier of not just flavors but a treasure trove of memories and stories.

Naturally, we started sharing stories about unexpected guests who have this uncanny ability to show up just as dinner is served. The subtle dance of expressions on our faces as moms skillfully adjust portions to accommodate the surprise company is an art in itself. But amid this culinary diplomacy, there’s an unspoken understanding—a shared humor that especially resonates among the younger members of the family.

Coming back to our conversation, my friend and I transitioned to the world of fresh bread in Ghana, especially the tempting varieties that make their appearance at dawn. We quickly shifted to personal preferences, and I admitted my love for Tea bread paired with Chiibom (Ghanaian Omelette). On the flip side, my friend proudly declared her allegiance to the classic combination of Chiibom nestled in butter bread.

As the clock struck 10 pm, a sudden craving seized me. Inspired by our chat, I found myself heading to the local convenience store, grabbing bread flour, and succumbing to the joyful impulse to bake Tea bread for breakfast. That’s the joy of being a chef—turning conversation into creation and satisfying cravings with the touch of your own hands.

And here we are now, with the tangible results of a conversation that lingered in the air, manifested in the form of warm, freshly baked Tea bread. The recipes for both the Tea bread and Chiibom are already on my blog, waiting to be embraced by fellow culinary enthusiasts.

What I used:

  • 1 Tea bread loaf
  • Peeled and mashed Avocado or thinly sliced Avocado
  • 200g of Chiibom or the Ghanaian Omelette

Slice your warm Tea bread lengthways and in half. Smear the bread with the creamy richness of Avocado butter or layer it with thinly sliced Avocados. Crown this delightful canvas with generous servings of Chiibom, divided into two, creating a harmonious symphony of flavors that will undoubtedly transport you to the heart of Ghana’s culinary embrace. Enjoy the fusion of memories, stories, and the sheer joy of creating a moment that transcends time.
