It was early in the afternoon on Super Bowl Sunday 2015 and we decided to play it low key and enjoy the occasion with just our family at home that day. We have been to many Super Bowl parties throughout the years, which have been fun and offered a delicious array of great foods so Gabby has gotten accustomed to the concept of it being a food centered event. Daddy did not disappoint and ordered a special smoked turkey to enjoy and I managed to cook up a couple of fun sides. But with a few hours til kick off, Gabby and I also decided to come up with a couple of easy and festive snacks that she and I could make for the game. These three mini sandwiches were the result and turned out to be great finger foods for parties, snack time or even lunchboxes. They were quite a SCORE for sure!
