Corned Beef and Cabbage Tea Sandwiches

Often associated with Irish-American cuisine, corned beef makes for a slightly different, yet quite delicious, variation of a traditional tea sandwich. We paired our recipe with a simple garnish of shredded cabbage for a little crunch and the creaminess of Muenster cheese for some added richness. We recommend pairing these sandwiches with a strong cup of black tea such as our house-blended English Breakfast.

Instructions:

  1. Mix mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  2. Take 3 slices of the bread and coat them well with the mayonnaise mixture.
  3. Lay out the other 3 slices of bread. Gently fold and layer four slices of corned beef onto each piece of bread.
  4. Top each with two slices of cheese.
  5. Divide the coleslaw mixture onto the three sandwiches.

Enjoy!
