Sherri's Cheese Tea Sandwiches

Total Time

This recipe is really easy to make your own-change it up by using different shredded cheese, dijon mustard, flavored cream cheese, and /or breads. Sandwiches may be frozen, omitting the cucumber; thaw in refrigerator, and add cucumber before serving. Also, I will make this sandwich just for me-esp. when cucumbers are in season or just top some crackers with the cheese mixture. Cooking time is refrigeration time after preparation. From Southern Living, 1992. Enjoy!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 4 ingredients; add cayenne, if desired, and set aside.
  2. With a 1-3/4" cookie cutter, cut 2 rounds out of each bread slice.
  3. Spread half of bread rounds with cheese filling and top with cucumber slices and remaining bread rounds. (I actually like a thin layer of filling on each side of the bread.).
  4. Place in shallow container, top with slightly dampened paper towels and cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 8 hours.

Great flavorful sandwiches! Perfect for a light lunch or snack. The only thing I left out was the cayenne pepper. Will definitely make this again on bread or crackers. Thanks!

Fabulous Sherri!! I made this with home-made wholewheat bread and Boursin cream cheese. The seasonings were amazing and FULL of flavour. I cut them into little fingers and garnished them with fresh parsley for a VERY elegant light lunch! I ate these with a cup of tea and thought I was back in England, in an old English Tea Shoppe! Made for the Comfort Cafe January 2009 - merci Sherri! FT:-)
