Finger Sandwiches for Foodie Friday!

Foodie Friday Logo 2

Visit Gollum at Designs by Gollum to see the list of participates in this weeks Foodie Friday!


These are finger sandwiches that you can make several days in advance and freeze.

Creamy Date Nut Filling

5  packages of cream cheese softened(20 oz.)

1/2 tsp. salt

2 c chopped walnuts

2 2/3 c chopped dates

Blend until creamy; then add nuts and dates.  Makes enough filling for 100 tea sandwiches.


finger sand 2

Olive & Nut Filling

32 oz. cream cheese

3/4 chopped olives with red centers

2 c. chopped toasted ( in margarine) pecans

1/2 to 3/4 cream or milk

Whip cream cheese; add milk until soft enough to spread.  Fold in nuts and olives.  Spread on thin sliced bread.  Trim crust. Cut into finger or triangles.   Chill; covered until ready to serve.


Asparagus Logs

1 can asparagus (long stem)



salt and pepper

Good square white bread

Remove asparagus sears from can and spread on paper towels to drain for about 2 hours.

Remove crust from bread and spread each piece with butter and generously with mayo.

Put one spear diagonally on bread, sprinkle generously with S & P , then roll from the corner to make a tube and I cut them in half.

I put them on a plate and cover with foil, Tupperware doesn’t seem to work for some unknown reason.  Refrigerate for several hours and take out of fridge about 1/2 hour before serving.


I love Fruit Filled Sandwiches…they are easy and can take the place of fruit on a plate, I have used them with soup.


Pineapple Sandwich Filling

1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple with juice

6 Tbsp. sugar

4Tbsp. cornstarch

2 eggs

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup mayonnaise

Mix all ingredients except mayo and cook over medium heat until thick.  Remove from heat and add mayo.  Makes delicious party sandwiches. Can be stored for several days.




1 loaf white or wheat bread

16 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 box strawberries

additional strawberries

finely chopped nuts

Run strawberries and cream cheese through food processor.  Remove crust from bread.  Spread mixture on bread.  You can cut them in any shape you wish, top with half a berry and sprinkle with chopped nuts.

Wishing you the Best Foodie Friday!

What beautiful sandwiches, Barbara, and your recipes make my mouth water, especially the Date Nut and Olive and Nut fillings. I'm going to print them so I'll have them handy the next time I need sandwiches. Thank you for sharing them with us.

Barbara, these look divine! I particularly like those date nut sandwiches... we have a friend at church who has a secret recipe, and thanks to you, I now have one! :-)

These are all wonderful to have because even when it's not a party, I love party sandwiches! They just make life fun!

Happy Foodie Friday to you...

These are beautiful sandwiches, Barbara. Everyone should have this or a recipe like it in there files because you never know when your going to be thrown into the ring. A tip I can share with you...years ago we would stack and wrap tea sandwiches in just damp dish towels and then in waxed paper or cellophane wrap. It worked as well. Your photos are, as always, wonderful. Have a wonderful day.

you want. It is wise to pack one third of the herb into the whip, as you would
need to do so incrementally. The vaporizer kit

choice of nicotine saturation or none.
