Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

Have you ever been to a tea house and had their little tea sandwiches? I have some super easy Cucumber Tea Sandwiches for your next tea event.

I like to have 3 different sandwiches on a plate when I serve tea or have a get-together with friends. For more ideas visit my full Afternoon Tea Page.

My first is usually a cucumber dill sandwich. I take white bread and cut it in a circle with a cookie cutter. Then I add some butter and softened cream cheese and spread it on the bread. I take thinly sliced cucumbers and place on top and add some fresh dill.

My second sandwich is a Tomato and pesto sandwich. I take mini bread from the bakery section of the store. They usually are in small 2 in squares and I buy rye bread. I make pesto sauce and spread on top. Then slice cherry tomatoes and put them on top with a slice of green olive.

The third is usually a variation of my quiche. I choose different ingredients depending on what I might be serving.  I may also add a crust to the quiche depending on how hearty I want the meal.

  1. Yum, I adore cucumber sandwiches! It is one of my favorite things to eat during the summer. Never used dill, though. Will definitely have to try it!

  2. I love tea sandwiches – I’ve never tried pesto in a sandwich before, but it just makes sense!

    Thanks for linking up to the Party in the Kids Kitchen – hope to see you this Thursday!
