Party Cheese Sandwiches

I have been making these sandwiches since 1970 when I received the recipe from our school's librarian. I never tell what is in the spread, till I have them taste and guess. So far, in 43 years, no one has come close!! What fun!! I am always asked to bring these, once they have tasted them. I often use this just as a cheese spread, served with buttery club crackers.

Serves:

12-24

Prep:

20 Min

Ingredients

8 oz
cream cheese, softened
1/4 c
chopped onions
1/4 c
chopped bell pepper
1 Tbsp
diced pimiento, drained
1 Tbsp
catsup
3
hard boiled eggs, chopped
1
dash of salt
1 c
pecan pieces
1
loaf sandwich bread w/ crusts removed
butter, room temperature

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Butter the bread. This step is very important as it keeps the sandwiches from becoming soggy
2
Spread the cream cheese mixture on the bread and cut into 3 finger sandwiches, 2 triangles, or diagonally to form 4 small sandwiches. These are best if made at least a day in advance. Cover tightly and keep refrigerated until about 30-60 min. before serving.

*If you will double the recipe, it will make enough for a full loaf of bread. A full loaf would make 12 full sandwiches, 36 finger sandwiches (cut into thirds) or 48 small diagonally cut triangles.
