Tea sandwiches, biscuits, and an assortment of sweets can be served in a kids tea party. To make your little lady’s tea party stand out , try to serve creative but kid-friendly snacks. It would be a thrill for the young guests to see something more than the usual peanut butter and jelly. Here are some easy kids tea party sandwich recipes you can try.
Veggie: Carrot-Cinnamon Tea Sandwich
8 oz cream cheese
½ can prepared cream cheese frosting
1 cup grated carrots
Chopped walnuts or pecans
In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, cream cheese frosting, grated carrots and chopped nuts. Lightly butter one side of the bread. This will prevent it from getting soggy. Next, spread the carrot-cream cheese mixture generously and top with another slice of bread.
Meaty: Crunchy Mini Hotdog Burgers
12 dinner rolls, split
12 cheese singles
12 cocktail hot dogs
Condiments: pickle relish, mayo, mustard, ketchup
Boil or steam hotdogs for about 4 minutes. While the hotdogs are cooking, preheat the oven for about 180 degrees. Drain the hotdogs and slice lengthwise. Leave the skin uncut to get ‘butterfly’ looking hotdogs. Next, assemble the ‘burgers’ by placing a split-open hot dog first, sliced tomato, shoestring potatoes, and cover with the bread top. Loosely line up the burgers on a baking pan and top each sandwich with a cheese slice. Bake the burgers until the cheese melts, but not until it gets runny. Serve the mini hotdog burgers with full condiments on the side so the kids can enjoy spicing up their burgers.
Fishy: Salmon-Cucumber Tea Sandwich
Whole wheat bread
6 slices smoked salmon
8 oz whipped cream cheese spread
Lemon rind, finely chopped
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper
Lay a salmon slice on white bread. Cut off any meat that falls off the edge and place them back on the bread. On a mixing bowl, combine whipped cream cheese, chopped dill, lemon rind, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Spread the cream cheese mixture generously on whole wheat bread. Next, using a peeler, slice the cucumber into thin strips. Place curled cucumber strips over the salmon and cover with the cream-cheesed bread.
Trim all sandwich sides and cut up into bite-sized pieces using a sharp knife before serving. You can use cookie cutters to create fun shapes the kids will enjoy. Prepare at least two kinds of tea, even cold ones, and serve in real tea pots and tea cups!
