Cream Cheese And Chive Sandwiches

Just from the featured image alone, these sandwiches look delish! They are so simple (only five ingredients!) that it hardly seems that there could be much flavor to them. But the dearth of ingredients lets each one shine through. If you were to spread the bread with something more assertive, you would lose the subtle flavors of the flowers and herbs on top. These Cream Cheese And Chive Sandwiches are the perfect addition to any party or event you’re celebrating.
Ingredients
1 8-oz package of cream cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
1 small loaf of French bread
Fresh herbs for garnish
Fresh edible flowers for garnish

Instructions

1) In a medium bowl, blend together the cream cheese and chives (a hand mixer works well for this).
2) Slice the loaf of bread on the diagonal. Spread each piece with the cream cheese mixture. Arrange the herbs and flowers on top.
3) Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for a few hours. You’ll want to wait to garnish the sandwiches with the herbs and flowers until just before serving.

Notes:
  • * I’m sure you already know this, but it’s best to use flowers that are free from pesticides. You never know what they might have sprayed on them if they aren’t meant to be eaten.
  • * Here, here, and here are lists of flowers that are edible.
  • * If you want a sandwich that is a bit heartier, you can add a slice of prosciutto or ham on top of the cream cheese.
