  • Spread the soft cheese mixture evenly on all eight pieces of bread. Lay a thin layer of sliced cucumbers on four of the slices. Sprinkle sliced shallot over the cucumber layers and top with the other piece of bread.

  • Cut each sandwich into three rectangular little tea sandwiches and serve immediately. And you don't have to eat them with your pinkies raised up in the air. But you can. It's kinda fun.

I decided to make this for lunch as I had some goat cheese sitting around and I am very glad that I did. I made the recipe the same with the only change being that I used whole wheat bread instead of sourdough which I didn't have. I imagine sourdough would be great too. What a nice lunch I had this sandwich with a fresh fruit salad and I will definately make this again. I will deliberately buy goat cheese just for this. Soooooo good. Read More

Two cups of goat cheese is way too much for four sandwiches one bunch of dill is also way too much and overpowering. They were messy and all you could taste was dill. This might be better with a quarter bunch of dill and half the cheese. Read More

Fabulous! I was looking for a light lunch today and I found this to be extremely refreshing! The flavors blend together very well and it's unique compared to the usual sandwich fare. I had to change a few things based on what I had on hand. I used honey whole wheat which was good but I'm betting sour dough would've been a knockout. I used a regular onion rather than a shallot and I had to use dried dill instead of fresh. I scaled down the recipe using only about 3/4 of a log of goat cheese and 1.5 tsp of dried dill if anyone is curious. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing. Read More

This was awesome! The only thing is that it made about double what would fit on 4 sandwiches (So not complaining though) and I only used about 2/3 of the goat cheese called for (because it was sold in 11 oz packages at the store). Making this easier: Throw it all in the food processor. Read More

Everyone loved them!! I did shortcut the recipe though by using herb goat cheese with a little less oil to make it spreadable. But the recipe is very easy. Read More

I replaced the goat cheese for cream cheese and used some regular white and wheat bread. I was a hit at a church tea event. Read More

I really enjoyed these! I liked the use of goat cheese rather than the cream cheese and/or mayo I've seen in other recipes. I cut the recipe way down and just made one sandwich for lunch and I would definitely make this again. The only change I made was to omit the shallot because I didn't have any on hand. Great for a light lunch or as an appetizer. Read More
