Need a quick, inexpensive appetizer for game day or a special event? You can literally make up tons of these in a matter of a few minutes and yet they are one of the items that go first. Refrigerate assembled appetizers for a few hours, if possible, to allow flavors in spread to blend. I usually add a little additional dill weed and freshly cracked pepper to the original recipe, but it's up to you.

How To Make game day cucumber party ryes

  • 1
    This is a photo of the party rye I like to use, if I can get it. It's sturdier than normal rye. Mix dip mix with cream cheese, 1 tsp. dill, cracked pepper and sour cream. Spread on party rye slices. Top with a cucumber slice (or Roma tomato slice). Sprinkle with dry dill weed.

    Top with additional toppings, if desired.

    ***Instead of cucumber slices, I sometimes also make half with a slice of Roma Tomato for an attractive party platter.
