Mini Foccacia Sandwiches

Mini Foccacia Sandwiches


In keeping with my “party food” theme, I knew I just had to do a mini sandwich for my wine party. I knew there was no way I was going to take all that time making little tea sandwiches with the crusts cut off so I went the Italian way. Besides, since I’d already brought in Asian, French and Greek style cuisine, why not add a little “amore” to the mix?


These little bites are layered with smoked turkey, honey ham, roasted red peppers, havarti, pesto and balsamic vinegar. I used a large rectangle of pre-baked foccacia with asiago cheese on top to make the whole thing easy and quick. These are great assembled the night before and sliced just before they go out on the platter. Not planning a party? Try this as a regular sandwich!





Split the foccacia loaf in half so that you have a top and a base. Coat the base with the pesto. Layer with the havarti, red pepper, turkey and ham. Drizzle with the balsamic vinegar and cover with the top piece of bread.


Using a bread knife, carefully cut into 24 pieces. Arrange on a platter and watch them disappear!
