I LOVE to attend teas. The whole experience is so relaxing and fun. The tea, the tiny sandwiches, the small bites of dessert, and my all-time favorite…scones with clotted cream and lemon curd…it’s also part of the experience.
I belong to a small “breakfast” club. We meet once a month for brunch at one of our houses. We’ve been meeting for many years and really enjoy each other’s company. Once a year we host a Victorian Tea, including 3-tier trays, real tea cups, homemade sandwiches, dessert and even the scones. It’s a great afternoon to celebrate our girlfriends and enjoy small bites of the food we like.
A must-have on the Tea table are the cucumber sandwiches. We never forget to have some version of this sandwich. I’ve made many different versions of this treat, but this one is my favorite! I especially love the addition of dill and other fresh herbs. Hope you give it a try.
1. Using a mandolin, slice the peeled cucumber making thin slices.
2. Mix cream cheese, herbs, garlic powder, onion salt and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl until smooth.
3. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly on one side of each bread slice.
4. Divide cucumber slices over half of the bread slices, sprinkle with lemon pepper.
5. Stack the other half of the bread slices with spread-sides down over the cucumber slices to make sandwiches. Press slightly and cut off crusts with a serrated knife. Slice each sandwich into four triangles.
