Cucumber and Cream Cheese Sandwich

Here is how to make an easy, fresh cucumber and cream cheese sandwich. Cucumber-cream cheese sandwiches are easy to make and tasty. Often served at Afternoon Tea, this sandwich is perfect anytime.

  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 Sandwich 1x


  • 2 Slices White Sandwich Bread
  • 1oz-2oz Softened Cream Cheese, Whipped or Block
  • 1 English Cucumber or Persian Cucumber
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste


  1. Take two slices of white bread and spread them both with cream cheese. I like to use whipped cream cheese but you can use block cream cheese that has been softened. 
  2. Clean your cucumbers and thinly slice them you need about 2-inches of cucumber per sandwich. Layer the cucumbers and sprinkle on salt and pepper then top with the other slice of cream cheese bread. Use a serrated knife to cut the crusts off and slice the sandwich into three rectangles or slice the sandwich in a diagonal both ways to create 4 triangles. Serve immediately. 
  3. If preparing ahead of time place on a sheet pan and place a damp paper towel on top of keeping the sandwiches from drying out.
