  • “Everyone loves this recipe and it works for any event.I prefer to use sourdough cocktail bread but others prefer the rye.So I make both.I also put lemon pepper on top of some versus the dill weed due to personal preferences.You MUST let the cream cheese, mayo, sour cream and ranch sit overnight to enhance the flavors but don’t put the mixture on the bread until the day of the event otherwise the bread will become soggy.Wax paper is the best way to layer the sandwiches.You can even use FF cream cheese and FF Sour cream but you cannot use Miracle Whip; the flavors are off…you need to use the mayo.This is a great recipe!ENJOY!”

  • “These were absolutely fantastic! Very refreshing! I’ve made them as directed, and I’ve also subbed reduced fat cream cheese, mayo, and sour cream. Both ways were just as great. I also served them on cut up slices of freshly baked french bread. Yummy! I do recommend using the English/European/Seedless cucumbers, since you don’t have to peel them. The dark green peel adds a boost of color.”

  • “Delicious!!!We made these for my cousin’s bridal party…they ate them (and other finger foods) as they got ready for the big day.Everyone loved them!We used white bread, did some cucumbers with skin and some without (next time I would leave on…gives it more color and held the cucumbers on better).Made the cream cheese mixture 2 days in advance and sprinkled with fresh dill. Will be making these again for sure!!!!”

  • “I made these for our New Years Eve party and they were WONDERFUL! I followed LoriLions advice that was given in her review with the original recipe and they turned out fantastic. I only got to eat 2 of the 50 that I made, everyone gobbled them up so quickly! This recipe is definitely going into the “keeper” file”

  • “These are yummy! I’ve used Italian dressing in the past but not ranch; nice change. Thanks for sharing.”

  • “I brought these to a work party and they were gone in no time.Everyone wants the recipe!Our store was out of cocktail bread so I just used regular rye bread cut into 4’s.Some people thought that was better because the cocktail bread can be somewhat dry.”

  • “I made this last minute for some girlfriends, and it was delicious.I subbed Carr Water Crackers for the bread, and used only 1/2 the ranch seasoning so the flavor was a little less overwhelming.”

  • “I made these for a bridal shower, easily tripling the recipe & using both rye cocktail bread and sourdough cocktail bread. I mixed up the cream cheese mixture the night before, and then we assembled the sandwiches about an hour before the house. I gave out the recipe 3 times! A big hit – and super easy.”
