Cucumber Sandwich Idea

Hi,

I am looking for cucumber sandwich ideas.  Can anyone provide me with any good recipes for mini cucumber sandwiches ?

Re: Cucumber Sandwich Idea

  • I use this one but there are a taon of variations. The one thing I would stick to is using whipped cream cheese over regular, it just tastes better!


    FANCY CUCUMBER SANDWICHES
     
    2 medium size cucumbers
    1 tub whipped cream cheese spread
    shaker of dill weed
    1-2 packets of dry Italian dressing mix
    1 pkg rye or wheat cocktail bread
    Wash cucumbers well. Using a fork, scrape down the cucumbers lengthwise leaving "stripes" all the way around. Slice the cucumbers into 1/4 inch slices or thinner. Set aside.

    In a small bowl, stir together cream cheese and dressing mix; combine well.

    Using a butter knife, spread the mixture onto the individual slices of small cocktail bread (cocktail bread might be found in your deli section rather than the bread aisle, it's just a small and dense miniature version of bread).

    Don't cake the slices with the mixture, just a thin layer concentrated in the middle of the slice.

    Next, lay one slice of cucumber (per slice of bread) in the middle of the bread. Once done, shake a small amount of the dill weed onto the cucumber slice. Remember that dill is strong and a little goes a long way. Just one or two taps of your finger on the shaker should do it per slice.

    The ruffling of the cucumber slices with the fork and the dill garnish really dress up this open faced appetizer. I always get raves about this at parties and requests for it at potlucks.

    Just remember to cover them tightly because the bread will dry and the cucumbers will get wilted if left out too long. It's a good idea to do some preparation work the night before, but leave the slicing of the cucumbers and the assembly of the sandwiches for the last minute

  • I LOVE cucumber sandwiches!!!  This is the recipe that I came up with and like the best.

     whole wheat bread

    whipped cream cheese

    mayonnaise (or I use vegannaise) 

    cucumbers, peeled and sliced

    fresh dill

    watercress

    Spread one side of the sandwich with cream cheese and the other with the mayo.  place the slices of cucumber on one side and sprinkle with watercress and dill.  Sandwich together and slice.

     Good luck!!
