Shamrock Sammies

Shamrock Sammies

Loaf of white bread
2 containers whipped cream cheese
American cheese slices
Cilantro or your favorite green vegetable

Cutting out bread with a cookie cutter can be a difficult task. Here's a handy tip that will help you: freeze the bread first! The cookie cutter will go right through the bread, giving you a nice clean edge. It also helps you spread your topping more easily. Since bread thaws so quickly, it'll be soft again in no time at all.

Cut one-third of a shamrock shape from half of a slice of cheese and place it on top of the left edge of the cream cheese-coated bread. On the other side, sprinkle your cilantro or other green. Leave the center white and you are left with a shamrock with the colors of the Irish flag. Arrange shamrocks in a single layer on plates or a large tray, and serve.
