ISO Sandwiches for Ladies Who Lunch

I belong to Questers, a group that gathers to discuss antiques, historical sites,etc. and just to have a good time. We are meeting at my house next month and I'm serving lunch, as is our custom. Will you share some of your favorite sandwich spread recipes with me, or ideas for those little tea sandwiches? They don't have to be fancy, just taste good. I have already used curry chicken salad and a tuna spread and I'm looking for something different or variations on chicken or tuna. Thanks!

If you want to carry on with chicken, try chicken and bacon. There is always the classic egg mayonnaise filling (I like to spice it up a little with some mustard or paprika.

I like to make a chicken salad with a little bit of celery, onions, mayo of course, mandarin oranges (canned), and Major Gray's mango chutney. Make smaller pate a choux to make them more or less a couple to three bites.

You MUST pierce (edited to say you have to more than "pierce" them - you have to cut a slit in them) them with a knife to release the steam and they can be made a day or two ahead - just make sure they are TOTALLY cool before bagging.

I forgot the toasted slivered almonds!!!!

Does it have to be sandwiches? The Barefoot Contessa had an episode yesterday called "Ladies Who Lunch" I can't get the chicken salad recipe to come up, but the cheddar-dill scones sound great and would be wonderful with chicken-and-cheese quiche, or quiche Lorraine. HTH.

It went better than I thought it would!!

Recipes : Engagement Ring Finger Sandwiches : Food Network

When she says "garnish" at the end, what she did was cut them into little hearts / circles / squares with cookie cutters and rolled / dipped the edges in the garnish stuff. They were very cute!

Where can I sign up for that? And it's Deen.

Also, if you make ham salad and mix with pineapple cream cheese it's pretty tasty!

You can also take the small Pepperidge Farm Party loaves and place a dollop of mayonnaise on them and a couple thin slices of red onion and bake. Unusually good.

Make a mixture of cream cheese, capers, red onion (and some caper juice) and nova salmon and make little sandwiches.

Focaccia or sourdough with salad greens, roasted red pepper, slices of water-packed mozzarella with a basil oil drizzle (olive oil, garlic, kosher salt, fresh basil leaves in a blender or food processor - don't keep more than about 1 week in fridge).

My girls love cucumber slices with cream cheese and pepper jam..I'm wondering how it would be to chop the cucumbers, mix with cream cheese or mascarpone add a good helping of the pepper jam and then serve on buttered pumpernickle or rye? Shrimp or crab toasts are nice,You can buy the large round cracker breads in most grocery stores..These have been popular for years, but are wonderful for parties..I make one where I mix cream cheese with curry,garlic onion and any type of chutney apread on the cracker bread top with watercress or arugula, roll and cut into slices..It usually goes first around here..If I think of any more I'll post..Good luck with your party.
