Friend Fridays: Penelope Carlevato's Cotswald Tea Sandwiches

I love to host tea parties for girls of all ages.  I have developed some interesting tea sandwiches and love to share my recipes.  Who doesn't love to be invited to a tea party?  Even men and little boys.  I have taken groups of ladies on Tea Tours to England and that's where the Cotswolds are! Here is one of my tea sandwich recipes that gets raves from everyone.

The Cotswold Tea Sandwich

1 cup of finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 to 1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
1 tab finely chopped green onion
4 strips of well-cooked bacon, drained well and crumbled
1 tsp worcestershire sauce

Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for at least one hour.  Spread softened butter onto whole wheat sandwich bread slices and then make sandwiches with the above ingredients. Cut off crusts and then cut into quarters.  (Makes 16 quarter sandwiches *8 slices of bread.)  *Tip for making great sandwiches....use an electric knife to trim crusts.
