12 sandwiches


  • 1 cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon onion salt

  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 (1 pound) loaf sliced bread, crusts removed

  • 1 pinch lemon pepper (Optional)


  1. Place cucumber slices between 2 paper towels set in a colander. Allow liquid to drain, about 10 minutes.

  2. Mix cream cheese, mayonnaise, garlic powder, onion salt, and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl until smooth.

  3. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly on one side of each bread slice.

  4. Divide cucumber slices over half of the bread slices; sprinkle lemon pepper on cucumber.

  5. Stack the other half of the bread slices spread-side down over cucumber to make sandwiches; slice into triangles.


To serve as an appetizer, cut bread slices into rounds with a cookie cutter. Spread with cream cheese mixture and top each with a cucumber slice. Yields approximately 48 rounds.

To make these the night before, cover with slightly damp paper towels, then cover with foil; store in the fridge.
