Emma Tea Party

(Post modified with new photos on 4/6/23.)

Our daughters love tea parties. My mother-in-law introduced us to them when my daughters were young.

Of course, there are different types of tea parties. There are pretend tea parties that I have with my granddaughter.

Tea Parties are for all ages–young and old.  

And there are the simple kind where you invite someone over for a visit and you have tea with a cookie or a scone. Then there are full-blown tea parties (Afternoon Tea or Low Tea) where you make little tea sandwiches, yummy warm scones, and sweet dainty treats to serve with your tea. This was the type of tea party my mother-in-law hosted.

Tea Sandwiches - Curried Chicken - Smoked Salmon - Egg Salad

And that is the type of tea party we enjoy most, for which these sandwiches would fit perfectly. We actually made these sandwiches for our youngest daughter’s bridal shower tea party. We served four courses and had three types of sandwiches. Curried Chicken, Egg Salad with Watercress, and Smoked Salmon Mousse with Cucumber. It was quite lovely. Read More about our Shower Here.

 

Tips on Smoked Salmon Mousse Sandwiches

When figuring out how to make these tea sandwiches, we considered various breads and wound up with two. Pumpernickel and rye. Both went really well with the salmon.

Finding smoked salmon was also a bit difficult to do here in the Midwest. But we located some from Chicken of the Sea at a grocery store in Olathe, Kansas, and I have since found it at a local grocery store. It’s not too expensive and it tastes wonderful.

Serving Smoked Salmon Mousse Canapes on Cucumbers

The last thing to consider is the cucumbers. Go with English Cucumbers. They have smaller seeds and make lovely slices. You might also enjoy serving this mousse as a canape with cucumbers for the base. Quite delicious!

Directions for Making the Mousse

Ingredients for this Recipe

Gather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened cream cheese until smooth. Add the sour cream, lemon juice, minced onion, dill weed, horseradish, garlic powder, salt and black pepper, mixing well to combine.

Add Salmon and Capers to the Cream Cheese Mixture

Stir in the smoked salmon and capers. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

 

Assembling the Sandwiches

Butter slices of thin rye or pumpernickel bread on one side. If serving open faced sandwiches, go ahead and cut off the crust at this time and slice into squares or triangles. If serving as closed sandwiches, assemble the sandwiches first and then cut off the crusts and slice as desired.

Cover and Refrigerate Salmon Mousse until Ready to Serve

When ready to serve, layer mousse onto buttered pieces of bread and top with thinly sliced cucumbers. Top with another piece of bread or serve open-faced. Slice into quarters.

This recipe will make 20-40 small sandwiches.
