Game Day Recipes ~ Cocktail Cucumber Sandwiches

It's the week of the big game, and even though the Cleveland Browns aren't in the Super Bowl (ha ha) we'll be getting together to watch the game. Here's one of my favorite appetizers. Most of the ladies in my extended family have this recipe, so these always show up at family gatherings, especially picnics. These little open-faced sandwiches are tasty and easy to make!

Cocktail Cucumber Sandwiches
1 package cocktail bread, either pumpernickle or rye
8 oz cream cheese (I use light)
2T sour cream (light here too)
1 package Good Seasons Dry Italian Dressing Mix
1 cucumber, peeled and sliced thin (I like to use a seedless cucumber)
Dried dillweed

Combine cream cheese, sour cream and dressing mix. Refrigerate at least an hour or overnight. Spread mixture on each slice of bread and top with 1 or 2 slices of cucumber. Sprinkle with dillweed.

I usually make the cream cheese mixture the day before and then assemble the sandwiches a couple hours before the party. Assembling them too far in advance results in the bread getting a bit soggy.

Enjoy! ♥ Kathy
