Okay, I’ll admit it…I am a complete sucker for anything with the word “mini” in the title. Mini-golf. Mini-series. Mini-cooper. And add the word bacon, and I am pretty much helpless. Toss in some basil and a tomato – you get the drift.
This is a perfect little supper for eating curled up together on the sofa watching, oh, a mini-series? Right now we are trying to catch up with The Game of Thrones, The Borgias and Nurse Jackie all at the same time, while being very careful not to miss a single episode of either Glee or American Idol. It’s exhausting, which is why a perfect little tiny sandwich that has some tomato, some bacon, a garlic-parmesan-mayonnaise spread and one basil leaf is just the ticket. Providing you make enough that each person can have five or six of them. They are like the wild and crazy American cousins of those little cucumber sandwiches you sometimes get at a proper English tea, and I love ‘em.That’s all I’ve got on this one…except go make them right now. Bacon = happiness!
