Sweet Berry Mini Focaccia Sammies

Sweet Berry Mini Focaccia Sammies

Shortly after making the Savory Mini Focaccia Sammies, I was inspired to use the same mini focaccia rolls, but for a sweet sandwich. And since my wife and I have become big fans of my Sweet Fruit and Cracker Bites, I simply adapted that recipe to suit mini sandwiches. It was no surprise at all that these little sammies also proved to be delightfully tasty, and were an instant hit with both my wife and I (and about a half dozen other people for whom we have since made them). And even though this was just a slight derivation of the Sweet Fruit and Cracker Bites recipe, I am taking the liberty of adding it to my 50 in 15 Challenge since it is technically a new recipe that I hadn’t tried or made before.

Ingredients

  • 8 mini focaccia rolls
  • 8-12 fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 24-30 fresh raspberries, crushed (or raspberry jam)
  • Nutella (or other spread of your choice, e.g. peanut/almond butter)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Cut each focaccia roll in half and arrange on a baking sheet, cut-side down. Bake for 6-8 minutes, turning over after 3-4 minutes, until lightly toasted. Remove from oven.
  3. Spread Nutella onto the bottom half of each roll, and top with strawberry slices. On the top half of each roll, spread the crushed raspberries/raspberry jam, and then place the top onto each sandwich, pressing lightly to ensure the raspberries bond nicely to the strawberries.

Notes

For a quick little sweet treat, making a couple of these sammies for each person is quick and easy. There isn’t much special to note about this recipe — since it’s a sandwich made with fresh berries, you can really add whatever type(s) of berries you want, and in whatever quantities you want as well. I tend to lean toward using strawberries and raspberries as noted here, but you can use many other fruits and berries as well (blueberries, blackberries, bananas, etc.). Also, as noted in the recipe for Savory Mini Focaccia Sammies, make sure you don’t skimp on the bread, and use some mini (or regular) focaccia rolls. They have much better flavor than plain bread, helping to make the end result that much more delicious.

Bon Appétit!
