Bridal Shower Finger Sandwiches Recipes

With this being the time of year for bridal showers, all the women involved with our bridal shower decided to make finger sandwiches. To make it easier, everyone shared in making the food and each of us had something else to do as well as making the sandwiches. It really was easy and we had a fun time getting everything together. And we all got together to make the sandwiches. It amazes me how you can get these made when you are laughing so hard!


We bought our bread from a bakery. We also had it tinted to match the colors, yeah we are a different bunch! But fun we did have! Next we cut off the crust, we also used fancy toothpicks stuck in the sandwiches. Not in all of them just here and there. Now there are different spreads you can use. So everyone found one they wanted to make.

Seafood Filling

  • 1- 6 1/2 oz. shrimp, tuna or crab (in cans)
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped dill pickles
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice

In small bowl combine all filling ingredients. Mix well and then put your sandwiches together and cut into quarters. Makes about 1 cup.

Chicken Salad Filling

  • 3/4 cup cooked chicken, finely chopped *
  • 2 Tbsp mayo or salad dressing
  • 2 Tbsp. pimento or dill relish (optional)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped celery
  • salt and pepper

*Note: The amount you want to make will determine how much chicken you will need. You can use 1-2 chicken breasts, or 1 (5 oz.) can of chicken can be substituted.


In small bowl, combine ingredients, mix well. You can make the night before. However, do not put sandwiches together the night before.

Ham Salad Sandwiches

  • 8 oz. cooked ham, cut into small pieces
  • 2 Tbsp. mayo or salad dressing
  • 1-2 tsp. pickle relish

In small bowl combine mix well. May also be chilled.

Egg Salad Filling

  • 2 hard cooked eggs, chopped.
  • 1 tsp. pimento (optional)
  • 1 tsp. celery
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

Mix together, chill. This one only makes 3/4 cup.

Pineapple Cheese Filling

  • 1 (3 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup crushed pineapple, drained

Mix together well and chill overnight. I have to tell you, this one was also delicious!

Creamy Pimento Spread

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tbsp. milk or half and half
  • 1/8 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 oz. (1/2 cup) cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Ad
  • 2 Tbsp. pimento, chopped

In a small bowl, combine first 3 ingredients. Beat until light and fluffy. Add cheese and pimiento, mix well. Chill. Makes 1 1/2 cups.


You can also create others from these recipes.

Use 1 (3 oz.) package of softened cream cheese, add any of these to make sandwiches:

  • 1-2 Tbsp. chopped green peppers
  • 1-2 Tbsp. bacon fried, crisp, drained and crumbled
  • 2 oz. (1/2 cup) cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1-2 Tbsp. pimento, chopped
  • 1-2 Tbsp. green olives, chopped

I really hope someone tries these, they are really good. As usual I had to munch my way through, they are so good and easy! Good Luck to whoever the shower is for. Enjoy!

Those all sound so good.

We also do cream cheese mixed with diced dried fruit.

And equal parts sour cream & cream cheese in the blender with marinated mushrooms & artichoke hearts.
