Dilled Cucumbers

Great served with roast turkey.


  • 2 cucumbers (8 inches each) peeled
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 2 Tbsp. all purpose flour
  • Ad
  • 3/4 cup half and half
  • 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • dash white pepper


Cut peeled cucumbers in half and lengthwise. Scrape out seeds. Cut cucumbers in 1/2 inch cubes. Saute in butter in large pan until tender but still firm (about 2 minutes). Sprinkle with flour and stir to blend. Add half and half, dill, sugar, salt, and pepper.

This is a great dish that I want to try very soon as I am always looking for different ways to use a veggie such as the cucumber. What an idea!

I have been looking for a recipe for cooked cucumbers and this one sounds good. Just one thing, did you forget the dill in the list of ingredients?
