How To Make Finger Sandwiches

Finger sandwiches are great for a snack for young kids, as an appetizer before lunch, or as hors d’oeuvres at a gathering. Use light, fresh ingredients to keep this snack delicate and tasty. These small bites were traditionally served with tea in England as an afternoon snack. Use ingredients like sprouts, arugula, tomatoes and your favorite dressing on your finger sandwiches. Slice the tomatoes – and any other ingredients you choose to use – very thinly to preserve the delicate nature of these sandwiches. Once you’ve made your sandwich and after removing the crust, cut the sandwich into four even pieces. Secure the finger sandwiches with toothpicks to ensure that they look as good on the serving place as they taste. These tasty little bites will have every guest coming back for seconds. In this video, Chef Fernando will show you how to make a finger sandwich that will have you reaching for seconds. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
