Cheese Tea Sandwiches

The nice thing about a tea party is everything is done in advance, even the hostess can relax and enjoy her time with friends. There are so many savory cheese sandwich recipes out there, but today we would like to share our recipe. It’s full of flavor and easy to make.

If you have a tired tray, these go well on the bottom level with a mixture of other mini tea sandwiches or served on a beautiful serving tray. I like using these little tea sandwiches for afternoon tea dates with my husband. They are perfect for small little bites.
