Nine Fillings for Party or Tea Sandwiches
See individual recipes for serving amounts
These recipes are some of my family's favorite fillings for party or tea sandwiches, most of which came from my mother. To this day, I still make some of these at least once a year for a finger food feast. I hope you will find a few of them to include in favorites. See the notes below for preparation and storage suggestions.
- Chicken Salad Spread
- Cream Cheese and Olive Spread
- Cucumber and Shrimp Spread
- Corned Beef Spread
- Tuna Salad Spread
- Ham Salad Spread
- Egg Salad Spread
- Cheddar Cheese and Olive Spread
- Pimento Cheese Spread
Notes: Use thin sliced white, cracked wheat and/or pumpernickel bread. Sandwiches can be prepared ahead. Trim crusts from bread slices. To prevent the bread from getting soggy, thinly spread each slice with butter or mayonnaise before filling. Cut each sandwich diagonally into 4 triangles. Wrap in waxed paper, then a damp paper towel to keep moisture in. Place in sealable plastic storage bags and refrigerate until serving. All of the fillings are equally good as spreads for crackers, toasts or vegetables.
