Tomato, Cheese, Basil Tea Sandwiches

"This is a dainty tea sandwich that is just delicious. Instructions are so that you will get two rounds out of one piece of bread, but if you can't, use a larger cookie cutter, but you will need more bread to make eight little sandwiches. These little ones are not open-faced but have a cover on them."

Ready In:
8 sandwiches




  • Cut 16 small rounds of bread (to make 8 sandwiches) with a round cookie cutter--should be able to get two out of each piece of bread, otherwise, use a larger cutter and more bread.
  • Spread one of the rounds with a little butter and then a little mayonnaise.
  • Top each with a slice of tomato, cheese round, and a couple of basil leaves (each should fit the bread round).
  • Lightly salt and pepper each one and put a couple of drops of olive oil on top.
  • Place other bread round on top.
  • Refrigerate till ready for the tea.

    I made these open-faced and used gorgeous slices of differently colored heirloom tomatoes. They were a hit!
