  • 1/2 lb of gouda cheese
  • 1/2 york ham
  • A sprig of fresh dill (optional)
  • 1/2 stick of butter , soft
  • 4 slices of sandwich bread
  • 4 small cucumbers , sliced very thinly (see notes)


  • Making the sandwiches: Mix cheese, ham, dill and half of the butter in the food processor until it turns into a smooth paste. Spread evenly on 4 slices of bread. Place half of the cucumber slices on the cheese and ham paste. Butter the other four slices of bread, and place on the cucumbers, butter side down. Butter the top of each sandwich and cover with the remaining cucumber.
  • Chill: Place the sandwiches on a tray, wrap in plastic film and chill for an hour, or until it's time to serve.
  • Serve: Once it's time to serve, carefully cut the crust and cut each sandwich into 4 triangles. Serve chilled. This is perfect with the afternoon coffee, or even a glass of wine.


Of course, there was piping hot, super-sweet black coffee to go with it.
To get the super-thin slices of cucumber I used a potato peeler.
