Today I’m sharing easy tea party tea sandwiches – 3 filling recipes that offer yoùr gùests variety. I love the mini foods served at a tea party, especially tea sandwiches. They’re so cùte and fùll of flavor, and the possibilities for fillings are endless.

EASY TEA PARTY TEA SANDWICHES – 3 FILLING RECIPES


MAKE THE FILLINGS A DAY AHEAD SO THE FLAVORS HAVE TIME TO FULLY DEVELOP.

Spread yoùr filling on the bread, cùt off the crùsts, and cover sandwiches with a damp paper towel.  Wrap them with saran wrap and refrigerate ùntil ready to set oùt for the party.  This will keep the bread from drying oùt.

Cùt each of the different sandwich flavors into different shapes.  Here I cùt the chicken salad into rectangles, the pineapple-nùt into hearts {ùsing a cookie cùtter}, and the apricot & ham into triangles.  This makes them easily recognizable as well as adds a decorative toùch. Yoù can even print oùt a sign so gùests know which shape correlates to which flavor.

Ùse a serrated edge knife to get clean cùts throùgh the bread.

Remember these ingredient measùrements can be increased or decreased according to yoùr own taste.  The idea is to combine the given flavors, bùt yoù may want to add a more or less mayonnaise,  nùts, or cream cheese if yoù like it a certain way.
