Sandwich Appetizers

When it comes to party planning or any type of event planning, for those events where you'd rather prepare the food yourself rather than hire a catering company, the opportunities are endless! Coming up with fun and/or healthy snack ideas and easy finger foods is always a plus, and adds an element of fun to your event. Sandwich appetizers (also sometimes referred to as finger sandwiches. tea sandwiches, mini sandwiches, party sandwiches or even finger food) are always a big hit, and can be prepared in endless ways using almost any ingredient you can imagine. Tortilla roll ups (also sometimes referred to as wrappers) are always popular, and amazingly easy to assemble, such as California Wraps. Tortilla roll ups traditionally consist of large flour
tortillas topped with any number of ingredients and some sort of spread that adds flavor and helps hold the ingredients in place. Once rolled up, the tortillas are sliced into small individual servings, creating an attractive spiral design that has great eye appeal and exposes the ingredients inside. Sliders have also become increasingly popular. Though sliders initially began as mini hamburgers made by placing a small hamburger patty into a sliced dinner roll, sliders now can be filled with any type of meat or fish or any combination of ingredients, such as Tilapia Sliders and Cherry Meatball Sliders. Another quick and easy party food that falls into the sandwich appetizer category is the open faced sandwich, also referred to crostini or bruschetta when prepared on small slices of baguette style bread loaves. To create these attractive and elegant mini sandwiches, simply top slices of the baguette (toasted using the broiling or baking method, or untoasted) with any preferred topping, such as Hummus Chicken Salad. (To see a variety of crostini recipes, you might want to check out the Crostini page.) Actually, when it comes to party planning or any other type of event planning, most any kind of sandwich you enjoy can be prepared, then simply cut into quarters, creating small finger food appetizers, which especially comes in handy as tailgate food and for serving at kids' parties!
