Tasty Tips From Our Kitchen To Make Your Cream Cheese Sandwich Perfect Every Time !

Make Ahead – if you’re making the sandwiches ahead of time and keeping them in the fridge, it’s probably worth scooping out the cucumber seeds to stop the sandwiches from going soggy.

Then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

Extra Ingredients – if you want to make the sandwiches a little fancier or they’re for a special occasion try adding in some smoked salmon or ham. Or keep it vegetarian and add in a handful of watercress.
