Sandwiches de miga
Sandwiches de miga are popular food items in Argentina where they are consumed mainly at parties. The sandwiches de miga are similar to the English cucumber sandwich, which is a typical tea-time food, and resembles the Italian tramezzino. The sandwiches are single, double or multiple layered and are made from a thin white bread without crust, i.e. the part of the bread called “miga” (i.e., crumb). They are filled with thinly sliced meat, especially ham, eggs, cheese, tomatoes, green peppers, tuna, lettuce, and sometimes other vegetables, such as asparagus. Butter is another important ingredient. They can be toasted or untoasted.
