Triples Recipe (Triple-Layered Avocado Tea Sandwich): lovely, cute, refreshing, a simple finger food for your party, perfect for host(ess) on the go.

I love, love these delicious triples (triple-layered mini-sandwiches). They are perfect for parties and get-togethers.

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that entertaining can sometimes be a stressing proposition: picking the right dishes, food preparation, hiring a brass band… OK, forget about that last one.

But having guests over need not be a big production.

One thing I learned over the years is that, the host(ess) too is supposed to enjoy the occasion — what’s the point if not?

So I have my to-go dishes that are perfect for entertaining: They look refined but with a minimum of effort. Really, look at those cute mini-sandwiches. This doesn’t get any easier.

Make them bigger to keep your hosts from starving while the main course is burning in the kitchen cooking, or make them into these dainty little towers for a more refined setting. Nobody will notice the humble provenance of the ingredients.

Have fun, relax, you are supposed to invite only friends to your home. Friends help friends clear the table, and won’t complain if the food was charred slightly overcooked.

    I found this recipe on Pinterest, and while it was posted three years ago, it is still new to me. However, I am a little confused. I want to make this for Christmas, as I am in charge of appetizers for a very large family. Every year, I look forward to topping the spread I put out from the previous year, and I think this appetizer would be one of the better ones!

    My confusion comes from trying to figure out how many this recipe makes. It says it makes 2 dozen, but you are using 6 pieces of bread, divided into 3 pieces per, meaning you get 2 “units” to work with (three pieces of bread X 2 = 6. It says to cut each “unit into 4 triangles or squares. That only comes to 8 pieces. Is there a step missing, or is the bread count wrong?

    In order to get 2 dozen pieces, you would need each “unit” of bread to have 12 pieces. No matter how I figure it, I cannot get 12 perfect squares from each piece of bread.

    Can you tell me how many pieces you get from one unit if bread if it is in squares and how many if you do in triangles.

    I am hoping you see this and reply, as I will need to do the shopping, and I also really want to make this!

    Thanks!

  3. Qué lindo encontrar esta receta. En Perú son tradicionales los triples en cuanta reunión social se presenta. No usamos aceitunas, pero sí tomate, huevo duro y aguacate. Son tan deliciosos!!
