Mediterranean Vegetables Tramezzini

  • In a bowl, mix the extra virgin olive oil, soft cream cheese, thinly chopped sundried tomatoes, minced garlic, fresh basil leaves and salt until you obtain a uniform cream. Taste and season with salt if required.
  • On a slice of bread, spread some of the flavored cream cheese and top with plenty of roasted Mediterranean vegetables.
  • Top the sandwich with the second slice and cut into the desired shape using a sharp knife.
  • Do the same for the other 4 sandwiches.

Prosciutto and Parmesan

  • Spread a thin layer mayonnaise across a bread slice and top with two slices of prosciutto, some arugula, and Parmesan flakes.
  • Sprinkle some black pepper or olive oil if desired.
  • Starting from one side, roll the bread to create a roll and safely hold in place using toothpicks.
  • Slice the roll into inch thick portions and serve.
  • Do the same for the other 9 slices.

Tuna and Capers

  • Peel and thinly chop the fresh onion.
  • In a bowl, add the drained tuna, mayonnaise, capers, onions, and a little bit of salt. Should you wish, you can add some red pepper flakes or cracked black pepper too.
  • Mix well until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Spread some of the tuna filling onto a slice of bread and top with thin slices of tomato.
  • Close the sandwich using another slice of bread, then cut into two triangles if using square slices, or four, if using Italian tramezzini slices.
  • Do the same for the other four sandwiches.


How to store tramezzini?
  • In the fridge: You can store tramezzini on a platter, tightly sealed with cling film; you can also store them in an airtight container for up to two days in the fridge. Before serving, allow them to sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes.
  • In the freezer: Stuffed tramezzini are not suitable for freezing.
