Cucumber & Chive Butter Tea Sandwich

cucumberchive teasandwich_cucumber_chives_butter_0113

A basic cucumber sandwich consists of bread, cucumber, and butter. There are so many variations you can create from that basic recipe. This one replaces basic white bread with brioche and adds in a little chive to the butter.

Notes:
– Pat dry the cucumber slices before placing it on top of the bread.
– Use a cookie cutter the same size as the cucumber slices.
– Room temperature butter is easier to work with.
– I used a mandoline to cut the cucumber slices and a cookie cutter to cut out the brioche.

    This is so bento-box style that I'm going to add to my list of ideas for a preschooler's lunch.

    Is it better to use unsalted or salted butter?

  • Jee (Oh, How Civilized)

    Hi Katy, since salt isn't added at any point, I would suggest salted butter.

    Love the idea of tea sandwiches, however I’m not a fan of butter. I substituted cream cheese instead. Worked wonderfully. Rave reviews.

    Unsalted butter works just as well. (I made this today!) The chives give such a great flavor in combination with the cucumber, you may not miss the taste of salt at all!
