Baked Cucumber & Cheese Squares

Prepared By Cathy

Baked Cucumber & Cheese Squares

aka Cucumber & Cheese Things (CCT) :)


Ingredients:

  • One loaf appetizer square bread (Artisan Section) – rye or pumpernickel (I used pumpernickel)
  • 1- 2 Large seedless cucumber (it is okay to use w/ seeds) – sliced approx. ¼ inch thick
  • 3 cups of White Sharp Cheddar Cheese (Shredded in bag)
  • 1 cup Mayonnaise (approx. – may need more/less) – I used light Mayo
  • Minced Onion to taste (I used dry)
  • Paprika (Optional)
Directions:
  1. Mix all ingredients except bread and cucumber slices in a bowl (like the consistency of tuna salad)
  2. Line baking sheet with slices of bread
  3. Place one cucumber slice on each piece of bread
  4. Spoon a generous amount of cheese mixture on each piece covering cucumber slice
  5. Sprinkle lightly w/ paprika (optional)
  6. Bake at 350 degrees until cheese has melted and golden brown (apx. 5-8 minutes)
NOTE: The first time I spooned too much on each and had enough mixture for half of the loaf, so this should be enough for almost the entire loaf. You may only need half of the second cucumber depending on how thick you slice them. Be sure not to slice the cucumbers to thin. Enjoy!
