These European style open faced sandwiches are delicious for breakfast, lunch, or as an afternoon snack. Each sandwich starts using a single slice of European style artisan breads. I prefer to use Crumb Brothers, but and artisan bread will do. If you don't have access to artisan breads, try toasting slices of whole grain breads to use.
Spread bread with a thick layer of cream cheese. Layer on slices of tomato. Dress with salt, pepper, and fresh chives. When my chives are blooming, it is beautiful and delicious to sprinkle some of the blossoms on as well.
