Back to school season is fast approaching as we all head back to school and the office after enjoying our summer vacations. Here at St Pierre, we wanted to come up with some exciting meal ideas so that you have plenty of inspiration for your weekday family meals, as well as keeping the kids happy.
That’s why we have come up with some magnifique nostalgic recipes for you to try, which are simple to create and delicious to eat, featuring a range of St Pierre’s lightly sweet and soft brioche products.
Whether you’re looking for ideas for a quick after-school snack for the kids, or a mid-week meal for the whole family to enjoy together, we’ve got you covered.
Back To School Recipes: Brioche “Bagel” Bites
Our take on the classic pizza snacks that so many of us remember eating after getting home from school. Using our Brioche Sub Rolls, simply spread tomato sauce on top, sprinkle grated cheese and your favorite pizza toppings on (pepperoni is our choice here) and slice the brioche into bite-sized pieces before heating up in the oven for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese has fully melted.
You can go wild with whatever pizza toppings you like on these, and you can also use our Brioche Slider Rolls to make these classic snacks without having to slice them up.
Banana and Nutella Sandwich
A treat for young and old, the classic combination of banana and Nutella works perfectly inside our Brioche Burger Buns. Simply spread a layer of Nutella onto the brioche bun base before adding slices of banana on top to make either a sweet snack or a weekday dessert in less than five minutes that the whole family will fall in love with.
We like to go the extra mile here at St Pierre, so as an extra treat in this recipe we have caramelized the banana slices.
Back To School Recipes: Ice Cream Sandwich
If the weather is still hot for the kids’ first day back at school, why not whip up some cool and delicious after-school snacks for them with a Parisian twist! We’ve created these Ice Cream Sandwiches using toasted slices of our Brioche Loaf, but you could use our Brioche Sliders to make up mini versions.
Sloppy Joe Sandwich
This iconic retro dish is the perfect back to school meal idea, whether it’s something to enjoy at lunch as a treat, or even as a meal with the whole family for dinner. With ground beef, sliced onions and green peppers in a sweetened tomato sauce, served inside a toasted Brioche Burger Bun (and a sprinkling of cheese on top if you like), this classic sandwich gets an upgrade with St Pierre brioche.

Back To School Recipes: Spaghetti Grilled Cheese
Yes you read that right – spaghetti in a grilled cheese! This is a great way to use up your leftover spaghetti from the night before. All you need to do is butter one side of each slice of Brioche Loaf and place buttered side down in a griddle pan before topping with some slices of cheese. Once the cheese starts to melt, add a couple of slices of peperoni to one slice of brioche and then add on your spaghetti. Pop the other cheesy brioche slice on top and there you have it, a spaghetti grilled cheese!
