Make quick and easy classic English tea sandwiches for very refreshing snack in the afternoon. And yes, the other day I was reading The Importance of Being Earnest again and thought I had to make cucumber sandwiches soon.
Cucumber Sandwich Recipe – Tea Sandwiches
For 2 people
- 4 slices sandwich bread
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 large cucumber
- Salt and pepper for seasoning
First, peel the cucumber with vegetable peeler and cut in three parts. And slice them. Today I keep the seeds but if your cucumber seeds are liquidy unlike mine, it’s better to remove the seeds for sandwiches.
Then spread softened butter on a sandwich bread. And season with salt and pepper. Then arrange the cucumber slices over it. And top with another slice of buttered sandwich bread. Today I am using wheat bread but for tea sandwiches generally white sandwich breads are used.
I love simple and refreshing cucumber sandwiches with black tea. So English!
“Please don’t touch cucumber sandwiches. They are ordered specially for Aunt Augusta.”
Thank you for watching. Bye for now.
