Open-Face Cucumber Sandwich Bites

Everyone loves a cucumber sandwich, and these solo versions of the classic favorite have been given a modern twist with fresh herbs from the garden. Rich cream cheese, crisp cucumber, nutty brown bread and a selection of fresh herbs makes this a healthy and simple party snack that will keep everyone reaching for more.

We love this appetizer recipe for bridal and baby showers, garden parties or as healthy snacks for a spring day break during work outside!

  • A loaf of Brown Bread
  • 2 cups of Cream Cheese
  • 1 large Cucumber
  • Handful of Chives
  • Handful of Mint

Thinly slice your cucumber and set aside while you use a circular cookie cutter to cut the bread into mini discs. Then, spread a thin topping of cream cheese across the top of each one before adding a cucumber disc to the top of each bread disc.  Garnish with chives or mint before serving.

Rather than discarding the excess bread, store it in a freezer bag and save for making croutons for summer salads later in the season!
