Main Ingredients

4 slices bread of choice

1/4 cup pesto sauce

4 slices of tomato

2 - 4 black or green olives for garnish

4 - 6 slices roasted turkey or chicken


1Toast the bread slices lightly in a toaster or in the oven on broil at the lowest setting until golden brown. Let slices cool a bit until they are easily handled.

2On two of the slices of bread slather on about 1/8 cup of Pesto Sauce on each piece. Making sure to cover the whole slice evenly. Don’t make the sauce too thick or it will become messy and lose it’s dainty tea-time sandwich feeling.

3Place 2-3 slices of roasted turkey or chicken on the side with the Pesto Sauce.

4Next, add the slices of tomato. Then top with the second slice of bread on each of the sandwiches.

5Place a couple of olives or other garnish on a toothpick or garnishing stick and sink into the middle of the sandwich to help hold this rustic tea time sandwich together as well as give it a bit more tea time flare.
