    Benedictine
    This is a Kentucky recipe.


    2-3 cucumbers, peeled
    1 medium onion
    1 pound cream cheese
    2 to 3 drops green food coloring
    Mayo to make it spreadable (I start with a tablespoon and add to it until looks right)
    2-3 dashes of tabasco sauce (Ihave used the juice from jalapenos in a jar)

    Cut cucumbers in half and scrape seeds out.
    Grate cucumber and onion infood processor and drain well in a strainer, pressing down with spoon to remove all liquid (or blot on a paper towel). Discard liquid. Add drained cucumbers and onion to cream cheese and mix well in food processor adding mayo and hot sauce. Color with 2 to 3 drops green food coloring.


    Use as a sandwich spread or as a dip. When I use it as a dip, I add extra mayo (or sour cream) to have it creamy and fluffy. Benedictine may also be used to stuff cherry tomatoes for an hors d'oeuvre tray.

    Yields 2 cups.

    The original recipe called for 2 cucumbers. I found when I scraped the seeds out I seemed to lose some cuke so I started used 1/2 to 1 additional cuke (dependent on size).
    As with most Kentucky recipes, there is no exact measurements, and you adjust to your personal taste.

    BTW, I always thought Kentucky has the best cooks in the world, but after watching Paula Deen, I think it may be a toss up with Georgia.

    Here is how I do my Cucumber Sandwiches:

    1 loaf of Pepperidge Farms party rye
    cucumber cut into slices
    mayo
    lemon pepper

    Spread each small slice w/ mayo, top w/ cucumber and sprinkle lemon pepper on.

    Here is another good sandwich...I serve them warm, but they are fine at room temp:

    My college sorority would always serve these cucumber sandwiches for teas.

    CUCUMBER SANDWICHES

    white bread, cut into circles (about size of a cucumber slice)
    1 bottle of Italian dressing
    4-5 cucumbers, sliced about 1/8" thick
    butter or margarine

    Marinate the cucumber slices in Italian dressing. Lightly butter each side of bread circle. The butter helps keep the wet cucumber slices from soaking the bread. Put one slice of cucumber on each bread and top with other bread. Delicious!

    I use a cream cheese spread on my cuke sandwiches...I mix it (8 oz--light ok) with a package of dry Italian dressing or ranch dressing (I prefer Good Seasons) and 1/4 c. amyonnaise (light is ok)...to add color use a few drops of food coloring...I cut my bread using the cookie cutters depending on occasion.The spread tastes better if it is made ahead and refrigerated.This is a Pampered Chef recipe.

    Mini Ham Salad Sandwiches

    Make a large "sheet" of mini 2- bite buns by using either your own homemade bread dough (I have a bread machine so its easy) or can you use the frozen bread dough too. Pinch off small size pieces of dough and roll into balls, about half the size of a golf ball. Put on greased cookie sheet approx. 2" apart. Cover and let raise. When it is raised till touching each other, bake as per directions for bread.
    when bread is cooled, slice the top off the entire sheet all at once.......as if you were slicing a layer cake in half. Spread with ham salad, or chicken salad, or egg salad. Replace the entire sheet of "tops" Cut apart to individual sandwiches using kitchen shears. Faster and easier than filling each individual sandwich.

    Another favorite filling is 1 can of white meat chicken (like the size of a tuna can), 1 8 0z. block or room temp cream cheese, approx. 6 ozs. of green pimento stuffed olives., 1Tbs. of mayo. Put all in the blender of food processor and blend till a smooth paste. Spread onto thin sliced bread and cover with another slice, or you can do these open faced by piping the filling onto the bread with a pastry bag and garnishing with a sprig of parsley.

    Banana Bread with Cream Cheese & Pineapple spread, My daughter bakes hers in the Pampered Chef shaped tubed pans, then slices and fills with spread. Very pretty.
    Then there is always cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced with butter for spread.
