Switching from bread to brioche can bring different flavours and texture to your meal. Brioche is a rich and slightly sweet bread that has a soft and fluffy texture, making it a popular choice for many baked goods, including burger buns.
Here are some reasons why you might consider switching from bread to brioche:
- Flavour: brioche has a unique flavour profile that comes from its rich ingredients, including eggs and sugar. This gives it a sweet, indulgent taste that can enhance the flavour of your burger or sandwich.
- Texture: brioche is known for its soft and fluffy texture, which can add a luxurious mouthfeel to your meal. The airy texture also means that the bun won’t overpower the other flavours in your sandwich.
- Variety: if you’re looking to switch up your usual bread choice, brioche can offer a tasty and indulgent alternative.
As National Brioche Day draws closer on May 14th, it presents the perfect opportunity to infuse a touch of French sophistication into your meals by making the switch to brioche bread. Your tastebuds and loved ones are bound to adore the deliciously rich and sweet flavours that brioche brings to the table.

EASY WAYS TO SWITCH TO BRIOCHE: MAKE CHOCOLATE BREAD AND BUTTER PUDDING MAGNIFIQUE WITH BRIOCHE
Bread and butter pudding is a family favourite, and for good reason. Add a little je-ne-sais-quoi to your next family dessert with our recipe for Chocolate Brioche Bread and Butter Pudding. This will upgrade your regular recipe to a whole new level of decadence.
Why using Brioche in a bread-and-butter pudding?
Brioche has a slightly sweet flavour, which complements the sweetness of the custard in the bread and butter pudding. The texture of the brioche also allows it to absorb the custard mixture more easily, resulting in a moist and creamy pudding with a delicate, melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Additionally, the lightness and rich taste of our St Pierre Brioche Loaf brings out the sweetness of the chocolate, and you won’t be able to stick to just one serving.
TRANSFORM SANDWICHES INTO SOMETHING SPECIAL WITH POSH BRIOCHE VEGGIE SANDWICH
Sandwiches are a staple, but they can get a bit boring. Switching from regular white bread to brioche is an easy and delicious way to take your sandwiches from boring to “magnifique”!
Why use brioche instead of regular sliced bread in your sandwich?
The soft, fluffy texture of brioche bread is perfect for sandwiches, as it provides a delicate and pillowy base for the fillings. Unlike regular white bread, brioche bread is less likely to become soggy or fall apart when filled with juicy ingredients, such as tomatoes or cucumbers, making it ideal for a variety of sandwich combinations.
Additionally, the slightly sweet flavours of brioche bread can complement both sweet and savoury fillings, allowing for endless sandwich possibilities. Whether you’re making a classic ham and cheese sandwich or a creative vegetarian sandwich with roasted vegetables and hummus, using brioche bread can add a touch of sophistication and indulgence to your lunch.
This recipe for our Posh Veggie Sandwich is full of scrummy ingredients like chickpeas, walnuts and cranberry, all in the sweet embrace of two slices of our deliciously soft St Pierre Brioche Loaf.
