What the Beck???

Today’s Recipe and Location: Cucumber Finger Sandwiches
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 90 calories, if 12 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         I absolutely loved these finger sandwiches. This is a “shower food” that I always looked forward to enjoying. I also liked the shower mix of pastel mints and salted peanuts – not that that has anything to do with this recipe. Okay, you all remember those mints, too.  
     I was used to the cucumber sandwiches with cream cheese, but this is a great “other” choice. The chives are amazing, and I would absolutely make this just for a regular lunch.  I would cut the crusts off for an event, but gosh darn it, I leave the crust on my sammy.  What I really love is that one complete sammy is only 270 calories and I felt quite satisfied after consuming this wonderful sandwich.

Try this for a light lunch – you may be surprised.

 Here are the ingredients that I used to create this recipe.

First, I should say that I was making a sandwich 
for my own lunch, and another for the Serpicos 
to taste test. I am only showing making the Serpico 
sammy in this blog. I initially spread a thin 
layer of butter on both piece of bread. 

 I put four slices of cucumber on 
one side of the buttered bread.

The next step was to make the sandwich spread 
using mayo, yellow mustard, and chives. 

I stirred the ingredients together in 
my medium size ramekin. 

 I spread the mixture over one slice of bread,
and out on the top.

I then cut off the crust - to make it fancier
(I'm not fancy...I love a good crust) 

I sliced the bread the long way, like Ree, and 
made three finger sandwiches from 
each original sandwich - which means 
the three fingers have only 270 calories total!!!
