Between two slices of bread lie an infinite number of combinations. Sandwiches can range from the light, crust-less affairs cut into triangles and nibbled dainty at teas to hearty, well-stuffed and roasted baguettes that fill even the manliest of appetites. Make your own bread or buy something special at a local bakery for the canvas for your sandwich art. You can make it up as you go along after that, including the condiments, fillings, toppings and vegetables, or stick to a tried-and-true recipe you’ll find here. For guests, it’s comforting to have a well-tested example to follow, but feel free to test different toppings and tastes on your own combinations. Substitute cream cheese, a spicy mustard or special dressing for ho-hum mayonnaise to create an entirely different taste. Got any great open-faced sandwich recipes? Tell us all about it here.
