Bacon, Cucumber and Cream Cheese Sammies

Recipe by The Pantry Elf
READY IN: 25mins


  • 2
    loaves pumpernickel bread (about 12-14 thin slices per loaf)
  • 1
    (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1
    (5/8 ounce) packet Good Seasonings Italian salad dressing mix
  • 1 - 1 12
    lb thin sliced bacon


  • Cook bacon in a 400 degree oven until crisp, being careful not to burn it, about 10-14 minutes. If you prefer, you could fry it in a pan or on the griddle. (I usually cook the bacon the night before) Drain well and let cool.
  • In a bowl, mix the cream cheese and seasoning packet together. (Adjust this to your taste - the seasoning tends to be salty, so pour about 1/4 packet at a time.).
  • Thinly slice the cucumber and set it aside.
  • Spread 2 slices of pumpernickle with a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture. On one slice, layer the cucumber and bacon, and top with the other slice of bread (cream cheese on both slices of bread holds the sandwich together nicely).
  • Cut the sandwich into triangles and serve.
