This is an easy open face tea sandwich recipe that gives you a salty-sweet taste when garnished with thin slices of sweet gherkin pickle. We use square loaves of pumpernickel from our favorite bakery. If you don’t have square loaves available, use whatever you can find and cut your sandwiches in the shape that pleases you: squares, circles, diamonds or cookie cutter shapes. Our recipe is below the video which has some good visuals and tips for making tea sandwiches. We hope you enjoy this offering!
Pumpernickel & Cheddar Triangles
(makes 60 small triangle sandwiches)
1 long rectangular loaf of pumpernickel bread from bakery, thinly sliced (1/4″) into at least 15 sandwich slices
1 16 ounce container of Sharp Cheddar Cheese Spread such as Kaukauna or Wisconsin Cheeseman, softened
2-3 Small Sweet Gherkin pickles, thinly sliced for garnish
Softened butter or margarine
1. Discard end pieces of loaf. Thinly spread each slice with softened butter. Spread cheddar cheese in a fairly thin layer over butter.
2. Slice crusts off and cut each square twice diagonally to form 4 triangles. TIP: Use a pizza cutter for quick, easy cutting. 🙂
3. Refrigerate these sandwiches in an airtight container, separating each layer with a sheet of wax paper. Before serving, garnish each triangle with 1 or 2 slices of sweet pickle.
