Disclaimer: This is not an "actual" post. (As I was reminded by the Sous Chef) This is what results from 3 days of house arrest and no access to inventive groceries. Coming soon... this morning's half-eaten bowl of cereal...
The term open-face is sort of annoying to me. I had an open-faced tuna melt sandwich once on a weirdly mammoth english muffin at a diner on 86th and 2nd and it was like eating a polymorphic tuna-flavored sponge. I ate it and then promptly regretted it. It was not my finest moment. The trick to open facing is maneuverability. Rule #1: the sandwich cannot be bigger than your actual face. Rule #2: All sandwich ingredients must be firmly anchored onto the bread in some fashion. Rule #3: The bread must be crispy (this is non negotiable) or toasted.
When executed properly, the open-faced sandwich is a delightfully carefree way to eat your lunch. If you are feeling particularly cavalier, you may eat it with one hand.
