Focaccia Party Sandwiches ~

I love party foods! Even if there isn't a party, it is fun to make fancy sandwiches. I made these sandwiches for a Bridal Shower and every one loved them. I am also doing them for a Relief Society Activity next week. I've found there are always occasions where we have to, or get to entertain, and it is always to have fun new recipes to wow guests with, so here is a new one for your recipe box.

This starts off with making a Roasted Red Pepper Dip.

In a food processor, or blender place about 7 oz. roasted red peppers, drained, 1 T chopped basil, (I used oregano, since that was growing in my window garden), and 1 clove of garlic, chopped.
Blend them and add 4 oz. cream cheese. Put in a covered container in the fridge to chill. You can either make your own focaccia bread, or buy a loaf. Slice your loaf horizontally with a bread knife.

Spread the bottom piece with 1/4 cup of Roasted Red Pepper Dip and top with sliced tomatoes.
Add a layer of baby spinach leaves or a spring lettuce mix.
Add a layer of sliced deli turkey or your favorite meat.
Spread the inside of the top bread with more of the Roasted Red Pepper Dip and put on top.
Slice into about 3 inch party sandwiches and serve.Now you are ready to have a party!

Enjoy, Wendy
