Cream cheese spread.

It’s such a simple sandwich my mother used to make for herself and for her bridge parties by mixing the simple ingredients into cream cheese and spreading them on crustless rounds of soft white bread. I just recall loving the taste and decided to try to re-create the past today With a slight twist to her original recipe. My mom’s recipe call for one block of cream cheese, 1/8 cup miracle whip, 1/2 cup finally diced sweet pickle, 1/2 cup sliced olives, salt and pepper to taste.

I added 1/8 cup diced red onion, 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, 1/4 cup Olive oil based mayonnaise, and 1/4 teaspoon paprika. Stir all ingredients together after the cream cheese softens. Sprinkle paprika on top and sprinkle with toasted sunflower seeds.

.Now just hand me a deck of cards and let me bid!
