Puerto Rican Mini Party Sandwiches
So as some of you already know, I am originally from Puerto Rico and we love to have family get-togethers with a TON of food. And it never fails that they are usually potlucks with everyone usually specializing in a specific dish every time.
While I wouldn’t say I “specialize” in this, I will say I am usually bringing these mini sandwiches along with something else every time. I swear I know how to cook, but this recipe requires no cooking, no prep and absolutely no skillz…. you may even laugh a little.
However, I SWEAR that if you ever go to ANY Puerto Rican get-together you will see these little sandwiches and they are usually the first appetizers to go. No lie!
They only require 3 ingredients:
- Sliced white bread
- Potted Meat
I can already hear you saying “WTH?”
Yep I know….
But just hear me out. The marriage that these 3 ingredients create is something that all Puerto Ricans go nuts over. Don’t ask me how it came about (I’ve never looked it up).
And just like my Coquito recipe (ya know, the drink that knocks out Eggnog every time) it’s always a hit and it’s always at every holiday party.
Here’s how you make them.
Take equal parts of potted meat and Cheez-Wiz and mix them in a bowl.
Here’s a visual… in case you’re confused. ?
You mix it up and spread it on a white piece of bread…. (oooooh, ahhhhh)
Then you put another piece of bread on top… here comes the tricky part….Cut off the brown border and cut it into 4 triangles…
And voila! You have the best little sandwiches ever!
I swear these are so good! And as you just witnessed, the easiest appetizer ever (besides cheese and crackers).
So, there you have it!
My “Is that what that is?!” party food. LOL!
Please tell me, I am not the only one!
