Cucumber Sandwiches and a contest


Super bowl recipe round up. Every time I take these somewhere, everyone loves them! Include your recipe and you could win a cookbook. Go here for details.

Printed from COOKS.COM

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. (I didn’t do this)

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 actually put the spread on two pieces of bread and made sandwiches.

  1. These sound terrific and I just happen to have some cocktail rye on top of the fridge. Thanks.

  2. My son made something like this one day. He is always coming up with fancy things. He loves food, especially the more expensive dining experiences. I hope he makes a lot of money someday so he can afford his expensive tastes. 😀

  3. Ooooo, so glad you decided to join in today :).

    And you’re going kinda sorta healthy, which makes your recipe even better!

    I’ve never made these, but I have seen ’em around, and I notice they disappear rather quickly. Thank you for making them apart of this month’s delicious food carnivals!

  4. I used to eat cucumber sandwiches all the time but nothing like this. I’m definitely trying this!

  5. Mmmmmm, I’m thinking cucumber sandwiches for lunch.
