Modern Tea Sandwiches

These may be tiny little sandwiches but that doesn’t mean they aren’t big on flavor.  Mix and match your preferred vegetables and cream cheese flavors to create a selection that works for you or your guests.  Perfect for a brunch, luncheon or shower, I will be serving some for mother’s day. 

I’ve made 4 different versions of these sandwiches that I served all together but you can certainly serve one, all, or you could make up your own combination.  By making different cream cheese bases and slicing different vegetables, the combinations are limitless.

Asparagus and Prosciutto with Herbes de Provence

1 tablespoon Victoria Taylor’s Herbes de Provence
1 package (8 oz.) of cream cheese, softened
4 oz. prosciutto
1 pound blanched asparagus, sliced into thin ribbons with a vegetable peeler
4 slices of bread, thinned with a rolling pin

Smoked Salmon and Cucumber with Zesty Lemon Herb

1 tablespoon Victoria Taylor’s Zesty Lemon Herb
1 package (8 oz.) of cream cheese, softened
1 medium English cucumber, sliced lengthwise with a vegetable peeler
4 oz. sliced smoked salmon
4 slices of bread, thinned with a rolling pin

Mixed Vegetable Tea Sandwiches

1 tablespoon Victoria Taylor’s Smoky Paprika Chipotle or Pizza Seasoning
1 package (8 oz.) of cream cheese, softened
4 slices of bread, thinned with a rolling pin
Mixed Vegetables:
yellow squash, thinly sliced with a vegetable peeler
zucchini squash, thinly sliced with a vegetable peeler
carrot, grated
bell pepper, thinly sliced
Snow peas

Mix cream cheese and Seasoning blend of choice. Spread 2 tablespoons on each slice of bread, all the way to the crust. Layer the bread with the toppings, overlapping them all the way to the crust. Put the bread on a baking sheet, cover with parchment paper or plastic wrap and press down lightly. Chill in fridge for 20 minutes.

Remove and place on a cutting board.  Slice off the crusts.  Depending on how you want to present the sandwiches, you can cut them in various ways. Some we cut simply in half. Some we cut again into smaller triangles. You can vary the cut depending on the size you want for the sandwich. 


Best,

Victoria
