Benedictine & Bacon Sandwich

The garden in over-run with cucumbers so now what to do with all of them?  How about trying one of my mom’s favorite sandwich, homemade Benedictine and Bacon.  It’s quick and easy to make, and quite delicious too.


2 medium  cucumbers, peeled, grated and drained of moisture
1 bunch green onions, chopped fine
8 ounces softened cream cheese
2 tablespoon mayonnaise
1-2 drops green food coloring
8 slices whole wheat bread
12 strips cooked bacon (not too crisp)

Mixing directions:

  1. Mix the cucumber, onion, cream cheese and mayonnaise.
  2. Add green food coloring drop by drop, mixing each time to gauge the color.
  3. Spread 1/4 of the mixture on each of 4 pieces of the bread.
  4. Top the Benedictine with three slices of bacon.
  5. Makes 4 sandwiches ( I like to add a few of our fresh baby lettuce leaves to each sandwich, this of course is optional).
Try this cool and refreshing sandwich this weekend with  a big glass of fresh brewed ice tea or homemade lemonade.
