A creamy filling between lightly toasted bread makes these cucumber sandwiches with cream cheese so delicious. They can even be made with lettuce and no bread!
My husband’s great-aunt likes to invite the kids over every summer for a special tea party. My kids really love going for the food and snacks.
One of the things that’s usually made are finger sandwiches. I especially like the ones made with olive and cream cheese. But, this year, I decided to try making one with a creamy cucumber filling.
For the bread in these cucumber sandwiches with cream cheese, I used the Focaccia Style Flax Bread Recipe at About.com. It has a great video to go along with the recipe on how to make it. I was able to cut the bread into 10 squares.
After the bread cooled, I lightly toasted each square in the toaster to dry it out a little. I find the bread holds together best if toasted.

Grate cucumber and let drain until most of the liquid is gone.
Combine the cream cheese, medium cucumber, sour cream until smooth. Season with salt, pepper, celery salt and garlic powder.
Cut the low carb flax bread squares in half through the middle height of the slice to make them thinner. Spread cucumber mix on bottom slice and cover with top slice. Cut in half to make finger size.
