Soft Italian bread with a garlic Parmesan cream cheese spread. These mini Italian tomato sandwiches with fresh parsley make a great appetizer or lunch.
I don’t know about you, but mini versions of food are one of my favorite things. Some call them “finger foods”. I don’t know why, but there’s just something about the term “finger foods” that creeps me out. I guess I’m just weird like that. I prefer to call these “bite-size”, “mini” or simply…appetizers.
Unfortunately when I’m eating appetizers, they never even hit a plate which means I just keep eating…and eating…which is exactly what happened with these Italian Tomato Sandwiches.
A short time ago we shared with you our new favorite cheese ball that is a creamy mixture of the savory Italian flavors of Parmesan, garlic and Italian seasonings.
These mini sandwiches use that cheesy mixture as a spread on crusty Italian bread. Dice some tomatoes and snip some fresh curly parsley on top and you have yourself a simple snack, party appetizer or delicious lunch.
Not only are the sandwiches bursting with flavor, but they’re also cute and colorful. It’s hard to get my kids to eat fresh tomatoes, but with these little sandwiches, there was no problem at all.
They’d be pretty served on a platter for a holiday party or as a fun game-day food.
Or do what we did and just eat them as you make them. 🙂
