Cucumber Sandwich

We decided to put a spin on this sandwich by using our Cape Seed Loaf! The nuttiness compliments the light and fresh taste of the cucumber & cream cheese. Get the full recipe here (it couldn’t be easier!). Our top tips for creating a beautiful cucumber sandwich are: 

  1. For that wow factor we loved creating a pattern for the top slice of bread. You can either go with circles, or stripes like ours. For the striped effect you will simply need to use a vegetable peeler and peel strips of the cucumber, then lay them on top of each other. 
  2. Make sure you use an extra sharp knife when slicing the sandwich into logs so that you get a neat cut.

Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Sandwich

Smoked salmon, dill, cream cheese, and our Country Grain Loaf all work in harmony to create this stunning little sandwich. Get the recipe here. To make this sandwich a standout, follow the steps below: 

  1. To get the perfect rectangles we recommend slicing your bread BEFORE adding the cream cheese & smoked salmon, this way you won’t squish the cream cheese out of the sandwich when you’re cutting it. 
  2. Mix your cream cheese & dill first, so that when you spread it on your bread you get the little specks of dill in every bite. 
  3. We love that you can see all the layers in this sandwich, so don’t be light-handed when adding your fillings. Two layers of smoked salmon and a nice ¼” layer of cream cheese will do the job.

Roast Beef & Swiss Cheese Croissant

For a twist on our classic tea sandwiches, check out the recipe for this delicious roast beef croissant, using our Traditional Croissant. Here are our best tips for assembling this sandwich:  

  1. If a full croissant is too large for your setting, you can also cut them into quarters! We recommend slicing your croissant with a bread knife or one with a serrated edge so you can get a clean cut. 
  2. To give the croissant a little more intrigue, we recommend using the shaved roast beef to create movement. What does this mean? Well, instead of simply laying a piece of roast beef flat on the croissant, layer it, drape it, or scrunch it so that it has a bit more height.
