- Spread cream cheese on one side of bread. Use cream cheese on each of the 3 slices per sandwich, or alternate with mayonnaise, mustard, flavoured cream cheese, etc.
- Assemble sandwiches as follows: Place a round of bread on plate, with cream cheese side up. Add a slice of cucumber & meat slice (if desired). Top with the other type of bread. Add tomato & a cheese circle. Top with same bread as bottom piece, with cream cheese/condiment side down. Put a fancy toothpick in the center of your sandwich tower
