Bagels with Lemon-Dill Cream Cheese and Cucumber

May 6, 2015

I had these delicious little tea sandwiches at my bridal shower and finally decided to make them myself. For a little twist, I put the extra cream cheese and cucumber on a homemade bagel instead of squishy store-bought white bread and it was extra delicious. (And it looks just as fancy, I think.)

4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature

2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill

zest and juice of 1 lemon

salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

6-8 small plain bagels, sliced and toasted (or you can used white bread)

about 1/3 of an English (seedless) cucumber, sliced very thin

Mix the cream cheese, dill, lemon zest and juice and season with salt and pepper. Spread over bagels or bread and top with slices of cucumber. If making sandwiches, cut each into 4 pieces. Serve with tea.
