Cucumber Sandwich Recipe - Part 2
If you've reached Cucumber Sandwich Recipe - Part 2 and want to read Part 1 first, click here
Here are a few recipes to get you started. The one from Cook.com makes them with sliced cucumbers, except they are open-faced sandwiches. The other, from my favorite recipe site, Recipezaar, makes a spread from the cucumbers.
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.
