RECIPE # 4179 - MOTHER'S VEGETABLE PARTY SANDWICHES - Friday, August 8, 2008
LYNNE TOLLEY / MISS MARY BOBO'S BOARDING HOUSE
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese
2 medium carrots
1 small green or red bell pepper
1 medium cucumber
1 small onion
Mayonnaise, to taste (about 2 T)
Salt, to taste (about 1 t)
Prepared horseradish or hot pepper sauce, to taste
24 slices thin-sliced white or whole wheat bread
Allow cream cheese to soften at room temperature. Grate the vegetables on the fine side of a grater. Allow to sit a few minutes and be sure to drain very well. Blend vegetables with cream cheese, adding enough mayonnaise to make a nice spreadable mixture. Stir in salt and horseradish. Spread on bread and top with another slice. Cut off crusts and cut into four squares or fingers.
Makes about 4 dozen finger sandwiches.
