Cucumber Sandwiches

    20 minutes

    No afternoon tea is complete without cucumber sandwiches. They are so easy to make and hardly need a recipe, however there are one or two tips we can offer to ensure that they are fit for your friends, family or even the Queen should she be stopping by.

    Serves: 15 

    • 1 cucumber, very thinly sliced
    • 1 loaf sliced soft white bread
    • 55g butter

    Preparation:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Place the thinly sliced cucumber onto kitchen paper and pat the extra moisture away. This will prevent the bread from becoming soggy should you be serving the sandwiches later in the day.
    2. Butter the bread thinly all the way to the crust, this in addition to pat drying the cucumbers will help to keep any moisture away from the bread.
    3. Arrange a single layer of cucumbers on the buttered slice, then top with a second buttered slice. Press down lightly on the sandwich and cut away the crusts leaving a neat square. Slice the sandwich diagonally, twice. Arrange on a plate and serve.
