These French pressed sandwich bites have 3 different flavour varieties in one loaf! A party food that's a little bit different, but still super easy to prepare.
Can I make it ahead?
Yes, so long as you have a good thick layer of cream cheese, and you're using really fresh ciabatta, you can make this 2 days ahead, then wrap and refrigerate.
Can I make it gluten free?
So far I haven't found a decent, thick gluten free ciabatta. If you know of one, let me know and I'll add it to this post. Warburtons do a pretty good gluten free sourdough cob
that would work for this though. If you're using a cob, you'll be better off slicing into wedges. The wedges will probably be bigger than the bites, so it will serve fewer people.
What can I use instead of cream cheese?
The cream cheese acts as a barrier to prevent the bread getting soggy. You could use a spreading of butter or some thinly sliced cheese instead.
