Cucumber Cocktail Sandwiches









Who says you have to cook when entertaining? These easy-to-make cocktail sandwiches require no cooking at all and are great little bites that your guests will love. Best of all you don't have to break a sweat in order to make them! The goat cheese in the spread gives it a nice little tang and the cucumber provides a juicy crunch. Don't let this recipe scare you, even picky eaters crave these miniature bites!

Ingredients:
8oz of cream cheese
4oz of goat cheese
1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
1 tablespoon of chopped thyme
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1 cucumber
Sliced bread


Kitchen Utensils:
Knife
Cutting Board
Mixing bowl
Wooden spoon
Stand mixer (optional)
Measuring spoons
Mandoline (optional)
Butter knife
Serving Platter


Prep:
Allow the cream cheese and goat cheese come to room temperature, this will make mixing and spreading allot easier. Chop the fresh thyme and parsley and set aside.  Slice the cucumber thinly with either a knife or a mandoline. 


Instructions:
Add the room temperature cream cheese and goat cheese to a mixing bowl. Add the chopped thyme, parsley, salt and pepper and mix by hand or with a stand mixer.


To assemble sandwiches, get two pieces of bread and spread about a tablespoon of the cheese mixture to each side of the bread. Add a layer of sliced cucumber and stack the bread. Cut the crusts off the bread, to give it a nice clean look. Finally cut into four small triangle and place on a serving platter. Enjoy!
