Cucumber Finger Sandwiches with Feta and Cream Cheese Spread

These aren't your mama's Cucumber Finger Sandwiches! These sandies are a twist on the classic baby and bridal shower finger food. Instead of the traditional mayonnaise-based spread, this recipe calls for a whipped feta and cream cheese spread, studded with dill. Cut your thinly sliced bread into the desired shape, slather with the whipped feta and cream cheese spread, top with a English cucumber slice, sprinkle with dill, and you're good to go!

Hatch Chile Breakfast Flatbread

Celebrate hatch chile season by making a delicious, spicy breakfast/brunch for the whole family! Hatch Chile Breakfast Flatbread adds heat to the table. Top flatbread with homemade enchilada sauce, mozzarella cheese, roasted hatch chiles and a raw egg. The flatbread bakes quickly, then is removed and immediately sliced into. The egg yolk should run all over the flatbread (if you're into that kind of thing) and add creaminess to this peppery dish.
