Ham and Bacon Party Sandwiches
Featured Products in This Gallery

Simply Delicious

Simple-to-serve, gourmet-style sandwiches are ideal for backyard bashes. Stuff fresh bread with turkey, bacon, cheddar cheese, green apples and homemade basil mayo. Fresh gazpacho is the perfect menu-mate, says Liess, because "it's served cold and people can walk around with it in cups or mugs." For the littler guests, go with no-fuss kids' favorites like mini hamburgers, pigs in blankets and apples with peanut butter. Photo courtesy of Lauren Liess.
