I made these little sandwiches yesterday for my friend’s potluck Oscars party (per her request). I started with prepping some homemade honey wheat bread, with this recipe. If I am not using homemade bread, I always start by cutting the crusts off the bread. When I bake the bread myself, I bake it so that the crusts don’t get too dark.
Then I started prepping my garlic herb butter. I make this quite often, and it works for a lot of things. I start with a handful each of fresh rosemary, oregano & chives. I chop all of the herbs very finely. Then I chop up about 4 cloves of garlic into as small of pieces as I can get them. Then I sprinkle the garlic with ample salt, and mix to make a garlic salt paste. Then I take the garlic/salt mix, chopped herbs, and one stick of softened unsalted butter, and put them all in the mixer until well blended. I then place the mixture on a piece of cellophane wrap, and roll it up into a log, like a cheese log. I chill in the fridge (or freezer if I am in a rush) until it gets back to just softened consistency. Then I spread a little of this garlic herb butter on each slice of bread.
After the butter comes a little avocado on each slice, salami, and sliced turkey lunch meat. I cut each sandwich into finger sized pieces, and secure with a toothpick. Super easy, and very tasty!
