As you know, toast is trendy AF, but what about Tramezzini? Well, ummm what the heck are tramezzini you say? If you’ve never heard of these before, let me fill you in. In Italy, tramezzini are known as little finger sandwiches, sort of like the tea sandwiches we have here in the USA.

Sounds amazing, right?? THEY ARE!
