Pippa has swept the world with her smashing good looks, the Royal Couple are enjoying a fabulous honeymoon and Harry Potter has finished his brilliant battle with the Dark Lord. The world has been taken with British culture and bloody hell, so am I. But alas, I can not afford to travel to Europe, sit on patios, sip wine, and gaze at Big Ben. So why not bring Europe to you by celebrating with one of Britain’s oldest traditions? High Tea. Here is a recipe for some simple tea sandwiches that you can pair with your favorite tea. Feel free to use this as inspiration to create your own unique sandwiches with whatever suits your fancy. You’d be mad not to dahhhling.
2 slices good bread (whole wheat for healthier sandwiches)
fresh dill chopped
cream cheese (softened)
salt & pepper to taste
Soften the cream cheese by putting it in the microwave for 10 seconds. Cut the crust off of your sliced bread. Spread the cream cheese on both slices of bread. Top one side with cucumbers, smoked salmon or both. Sprinkle dill and salt and pepper to taste. Place the other slice of bread on top and cut into cute small rectangle or triangle shapes. Enjoy your brilliant creation with a cup of tea, (pinky out).
