Tips and Time Savers
on making Sandwiches for Tea
Tea breads are easier to cut if the bread is cool or
even frozen. Cut the crusts off frozen bread and into the desired shape. Fill and then allow to come to room temperature - right in time for serving.
If you make your party sandwiches ahead of time, then before filling them, spread the bread with butter (unless the filling is itself, a type of butter). This will help to keep the bread from getting soggy.
Save your bread trimmings for croutons, bread pudding or stuffing.
To cut into finger sandwiches - use two parallel cuts;
for triangles- two diagonal cuts;
for squares - two perpendicular cuts.
Remember, Afternoon tea or formal British tea, not High Tea, is the
time for dainty, tiny sandwiches.
