With Super Bowl XLIV only a week away (Geaux Saints!), many of us are starting to plan our menus for the big day's festivities. Super Bowl Sunday combines four of the things we Americans love the most: football, beer, TV and FOOD! And lots of it. Since the majority of the food served will be appetizers and finger foods (who has time to sit with a knife and fork when there's football to be watched?), I'll be featuring an appetizer every weekday this week. First up: Mini Ham & Cheese Sandwiches.
I ♥ miniature food. If all my food was miniature, I'd be a happy gal. Now I don't mean small servings or little slices of something--I'm talking mini versions of the real deal, like these sandwiches. They're simple to throw together, yet pack such an amazing flavor punch! Seriously, I could eat four (or more!) of these in a sitting if nobody was around to laugh and point at me in disgust. (Sidenote: poppy seeds & braces are not friends. They manage to wriggle their way into every nook and cranny imaginable!) I first saw this recipe when Jen of Beantown Baker posted them back in December, and it's absolutely fantastic. Please visit her site for the recipe, and be sure to check out the rest of her wonderful creations!
Tomorrow: A dip you'll "pop" over!
