Open-Faced Sandwiches

I adore simplicity, especially if it's a recipe that doesn't lack in taste. These open-faced sandwiches are a few of my favorite simple, but delicious recipes!

I adore simplicity. For so many things, less is more. I most definitely appreciate the occasional complicated recipe, but the really simple food combinations can speak volumes to my palette.

These simple open-faced sandwiches are a few of my favorites, and also ones that my mother made for me a lot growing up. I have a few more to add, but I will save them for Part II!

Spread cream cheese on a slice of bread and stack sliced green olives on top. This is so tasty, and by far my favorite of the bunch listed here. The combination of sweet and salty is fantastic.

Spread cream cheese on a slice of bread and stack sliced cucumbers on top. Sprinkle seasoning salt over the cucumbers. This is a very fresh sandwich.

Spread peanut butter onto a slice of bread and stack pickle slices on top. Or "pickle planks," as the label on the jar says. For some reason I love that. Pickle planks. This combination is scrumptious!

Spread mustard onto a slice of bread and stack slices of velveeta cheese on top. I do realize this sounds, and possibly looks, quite gross. Trust me, it is not. If you are willing to consume the calories and fat and preservation ingredients that Velveeta contains, try it. It is strangely awesome.

Feeling inspired to expand your sandwich repertoire and like living life not in the safe zone? Then you will love my Guac and Chips Grilled Cheese or my Nutella Brie-Nana Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Sandwiches never have to be boring again!
