Tempt my Tummy.



Mini Sandwiches

Make several sandwich fillings and spread on the sandwich bread. You can trim off crusts if you prefer. Slice into triangles. Stick colorful toothpicks. Suggested sandwich fillings: (1) Egg Salad – Chop some boiled eggs and mix with mayonnaise and black pepper. (2) Chicken salad – chop barbecue or rotisserie chicken into small pieces, then add mayonnaise or salad dressing, and season with black pepper. (3) Tuna salad – mix drained tuna with chopped celery and mayonnaise or salad dressing. Season with salt and black pepper. Mix well. Arrange the mini sandwiches on a platter. Miniature sandwiches are great potluck ideas because most people like small serving sizes.
