Remember I mentioned my children and I like to munch on strawberries and Brie cheese for a snack? Well, I’m still recuperating from the flu and I didn’t feel like cooking anything and my children were demanding lunch. I thought of grilled cheese with strawberries and blueberries, but it still involved cooking. That is when I thought of making our favorite snack into sandwiches. These sandwiches not only look good but they are also refreshing and nutritious. It didn’t dawn on me until I took some pictures that these tea sandwiches had 4th of July colors; red, white, and blue! That’s when these sandwiches earned its name, 4th of July Tea Sandwiches. An excellent party food for children.
- white, wheat, rye, or any bread of your choice
- Fresh blueberries
- Fresh Strawberries, thinly sliced
- Mild, Milky Brie Cheese, thinly cut
- honey (optional)
- Layer the sandwich with honey, brie cheese, blueberries and strawberries, then brie cheese again. This will keep the fruits in place even after cutting.
- Trim the crust and cut into pieces. Serve wrap with wax paper or as is.
- Enjoy with your favorite tea or coffee.
An excellent variation to this sandwich is to grill it and you have a Fresh Berry Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

Hello Lail! Yes, these sandwiches are great for kids and adult alike–anytime. 🙂 By the way, you have such a lovely blog; gorgeous photos and delicious recipes. Thanks for the visit. Have a lovely day!
PS I immediately pinned this onto my “holiday food” board on Pinterest! 🙂
Thank you so much, Shanna. 🙂
Lovely recipe – and what a festive and fun idea! I know my kids would love these. I bet almost any soft cheese would work, such as Neufchatel, mascarpone or soft goat cheese (chévre). Beautiful photo with the lovely colors, Anna – yes, I am sure your kids love these on the 4th of July or any day! Warm wishes, Shanna
Thank you, my PRCCSS for the visit and lovely comments. Yes, you can use any soft cheese of your choice. A great way to experiment new flavors. My children and I just love these flavor combination. Best regards. 🙂
