Open-faced sandwiches are not to be approached lightly. With their layered toppings and tendency toward sauciness, things can very quickly get out of hand. It's best to keep a fork and a napkin nearby as a precautionary back-up measure. With this in mind: take a look at these open-faced, sauced-up, piled-high beauties! 1.
