Corned Beef Open Sandwiches


Cooking time: 10 mins.
Preparation time: 10 mins. plus time for eggs to cool
Main cooking utensils: saucepan, cookie cutters

For 6-8 people you need:
2 eggs
6 slices bread
3-4 tablespoons butter
12-oz. can corned beef

tomato or red sweet pepper
little cucumber
few stuffed olives
mustard and cress
dill pickle

To flavor butter:
a) lemon butter- add little finely grated lemon rind and juice
b) watercress butter – add chopped watercress and little lemon juice
c) deviled butter – add pinch curry powder and a few drops of Worcestershire sauce

1. Hard-cook the eggs, allowing 8-10 minutes in boiling water. When they are ready, crack at once and put into cold water – this prevents a dark line forming around the yolk.

2. Cut out the desired shapes in the bread – if the bread is fresh, warm the cookies cutter and the bread will not crumble.

3. Soften the butter slightly, so it spreads without harming the shape of the bread.

4. Cut the corned beef into neat thin slices, then cut into similar shapes to the bread but a little smaller.

5. Arrange the beef on the bread and butter and garnish as show in the picture.

TO SERVE: With cocktails or as a light snack.

TO VARY: Flavor the butter as suggested.

TO STORE: Keep covered with foil or saran wrap in a cool place until ready to serve.

Old-Fashioned Tea Punch and Turkey Sandwich Loaf


Turkey Sandwich Loaf

This party sandwich loaf is an excellent device for using up holiday turkey, or for that matter, any leftover meat (chicken, ham, roast beef, etc.).

3 cups chopped cooked turkey or other cooked meat
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 teaspoon grated onion
1 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 loaf (1 pound) thin sliced soft white sandwich loaf bread
1/2 cup (1 stick) soft butter
3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 package (4-oz) cream cheese
1 tablespoon light cream
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley

Make turkey filling: Mix together chopped turkey, celery, onion, and mayonnaise and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Trim crusts from bread; place 3 slices bread in row on sheet of wax paper; butter slices on one side and spread with turkey filling. Continue adding slices, buttering and spreading with filling until each stack contains 6 slices.

Press loaf together firmly. Beat blue cheese, cream cheese, and cream together; spread on top and sides of loaf; sprinkle with parsley and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Serve on platter garnished with watercress and sliced cucumber; slice loaf thinly; serve with sandwich plates and forks.

Yield: 6-8 slices.

Note: when planning a large party, make several sandwich loafs, varying fillings if desired, and estimating 1 loaf for 6 guests; at important or “high tea” parties arrange loafs around punch bowl on buffet table and add a platter of cold cuts and a ripe Brie cheese surrounded with crackers or French bread slices; a bowl of finger fruits in season (grapes, cherries, plums, apricots, nectarines) adds a touch of razzle-dazzle.
