"These are for a party. You can use full sized rye for larger sandwiches."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (1 pound) loaf
cocktail rye bread
1 (3 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
onion, halved and thinly sliced
I love cucumber sandwiches. A tip for the onions: Use very finely sliced red onion that has been soaked in cold water for at least a half hour. Gently squeeze out excess water with your hands, pat dry well and proceed with the sandwich making. Soaking the onion makes for an incredible sweetness minus the sharpness. Thanks for the recipe.
I really wanted to like this, but it just was not what I expected. I liked the filling and the cucumbers, but hated it on the cocktail bread. If I try this again, I think I will use a softer rye bread cut into rounds.
I was concerned the onion slices would overpower the cucumbers so I did not add them. I added additional thin slices of cucumber (which needs salt and pepper to taste). The combination of mayo and softened cream cheese was bland so I added 1 teaspoon of powdered ranch dressing mix. This gave the sandwiches a nice flavor!
Went over well at my impromptu gathering. I had all the ingredients in the house, so I whipped them together and got great praises!
Optional Method that we love:
1) Use Mini sourdough bread instead of Rye.
2) Sprinkle top of cucumber with Lemon Pepper (Give it a try)
These do not last long when we make them!
Oh I love these!!! I mixed the cream cheese with mayo and spread on the rye, used one thicker slice of cucumber that basically took up the entire slice of rye, omitted the onion, and sprinkled with lemon pepper. I die!
Very easy to make. I made it for a party and got compliments all night long. If you don't like rye bread, you can also use french bread.
Yum! I used potato bread for this. Was worried the onion would be overpowering, but when sliced thin it really added a nice zing - I would not recommend omitting the onion from this recipe!
