One that comes to my mind that I made once is Mini BLT's ... Make with sliced cherry tomatoes, crumbled bacon and shredded lettuce.

On the left side of this link there are about a dozen Tea Sandwich recipes:

We make cucumber sandwiches for special ocassions. They are incredibly easy and inexpensive.

You'll need:

1 loaf of white bread

1 loaf of wheat bread


1 pkg. cream cheese


3 T worchestershire sauce

scallions or green onions. chopped

cucumbers (about two, depending on how thin you slice them.)

Remove the crust from the bread. Slice cucumbers. You can peel them or not. Mix softened cream cheese with mayonnaise, chopped onions and worchestershire sauce. The amounts aren't exact. You want it to be the consistency of a thick spread. Spread on each slice of bread. Lay four cucumber slices on one slice of bread and top with another slice with just the spread on it. One side should be white and the other wheat. Cut the sandwich into fourths. You can stack the finger sandwiches alternating wheat and white for a checkerboard appearance. Put another cucumber slice on the top of each finger sandwich. Tastes delicious!

I always make the standard chicken salad, seafood salad, tuna salad, egg salad sandwiches. All are inexpensive when made from scratch. There is a really great chicken salad recipe on It has dried cranberries and pecans. I made it for my daughters confirmation party and everyone loved them! When making a chicken salad, I always start with whole chickens and boil them. Take the meat off the bones and use that for the salad. The leftover broth can be used for an Italian Wedding Soup. I also made that for my daughter's confirmation dinner.


I always make my own seafood salad. My local store sells the imitation crab for about $4.00 for 2.5 pounds in the freezer section. Cans of tuna are usually very inexpensive for the light chunk. The solid white tuna is usually about $1.00/can. I hope this helps!

In the North of England they enjoy 'Savoury' sandwiches by adding grated carrot, grated onion (optional) and what we call salad cream (sharper than mayonnaise) to grated cheese, mashed boiled eggs or corned beef. All my guests love them even though I'm a Southern Girl.

If an open-faced one is ok, try mayo on cocktail rye, topped with a slice of cucumber and sprinkled with lemon pepper...yummy !
