You can't eat just one!!! These sandwiches are a favorite at our casual family gatherings ... and they look sooo pretty!!!

Huey attended an event where this type of sandwich was served, and came home raving about them ... so this is MY version!!! He LOVES them, and apparently, so does everyone else!!!!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
A fun twist on ham and eggs! I loved both these spreads. The egg salad is creamy and the ham salad has a touch of crunchiness thanks to the celery. The presentation is lovely too thanks to the two different breads. These would be great served at a luncheon or as an appetizer at a holiday party.
