Fresh Berry Tea Sandwiches (4th of July Tea Sandwiches)

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.

Ingredients:

  • white, wheat, rye, or any bread of your choice
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Fresh Strawberries, thinly sliced
  • Mild, Milky Brie Cheese, thinly cut
  • honey (optional)

Preparation Methods:

  • 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.
