The BFG's Snozzcumber sandwiches are a speedy kids sandwich recipe that makes a cucumber and cream cheese sandwich a lot more fun. If you kids love Roald Dahl, then they will love this recipe! We've used thinly sliced gherkins which have been added to the top to really bring the mini sandwich bites to life and we've used rye bread which is much healthier than a white bread option. You can mix things up a little and even add tuna, smoked salmon or tomatoes to these mini sandwich bites or combine them with your kids' favourite flavours to make something extra special! These are ideal for an after-school snack, lunchbox filler (if you sandwich it together with another slice of rye bread) or even as a speedy lunch or dinner for the kids. If you're packing a picnic, these sandwiches are perfect - you can throw them together in 15 minutes which means it's a no-fuss recipe that's ideal for when you're short on time or lacking inspiration - plus, the kids will love them and will be asking for them time and time again.
- 1 ridged cucumber
- 6 slices rye bread, halved
- 170g herby cream cheese (we used Philadephia)
- 6 small gherkins, sliced
- 2tbsp poppy seeds
Drag the handle of a teaspoon down the edges of the cucumber to create grooves down the whole length. Slice into 12 pieces and use an apple corer to remove the central seeds of the cucumber.
Spread each piece of bread with a little cream cheese. Tip the remaining cheese into a small bowl and mix with the sliced gherkins. Spoon this topping onto each cucumber slice and sprinkle with poppy seeds to serve.
