Open-faced sandwiches are fun and easy to make. Personally, I like them much more than regular sandwiches. There are two reasons for this: 1. I think that open-faced sandwiches are prettier and 2. The filling-to-bread ratio is high, making them irresistible and delicious. (though I always keep my fork and a napkin nearby). All in all, I can never have enough of them.
