No matter the occasion, cream cheese sandwiches have become the epitome of yumminess.

I’m sharing 10 of my all-time favorite cream cheese sandwich recipes with you. 

Let’s get to it! 

1. Cucumber Cream Cheese Sandwiches

These refreshing cucumber cream cheese sandwiches can’t be topped!

Cool cucumber slices are topped on a bed of velvety cream cheese sandwiched between freshly-baked bread.

With each nibble, your tastebuds embark on a journey of textures and tastes. There’s a delightful crunch from the cucumber, a creamy bliss from the cheese, and a hint of earthiness from the bread.

These tasty sandwiches are perfect for picnics, luncheons, or any occasion. Get ready to savor pure sandwich magic!

2. Cream Cheese Sandwich with Mixed Veggies

Are you a fan of herbs and veggies? If so, this is definitely the sandwich for you. You can add as many fresh or powdered herbs to the cream cheese spread as you like. 

Then, you load it with onions, tomatoes, and other fresh garden veggies. Stick it in a panini press to make the bread nice and crunchy, and voila! 

This will be the best veggie sandwich you’ve ever tasted.

3. Veggie Sandwich with Herbed Cream Cheese

Of course, you don’t have to grill or press your sandwich to make it good. This veggie-packed sandwich is pretty similar to the one above. 

The primary difference is that this one leaves the bread fresh and unheated. 

It makes for a softer, cooler sandwich, perfect for hot summer days. 

4. Simple Cream Cheese Grilled Cheese

If you’ve never added cream cheese to a grilled cheese sandwich, you’re missing out!

This heavenly creation takes the classic grilled cheese to a whole new level. The flavors in this sandwich are a symphony of creamy and savory goodness.

The cream cheese adds a delightful tanginess that perfectly complements the rich and melty cheese. It’s pure bliss in every bite!

Indulge in this cheesy masterpiece, and your tastebuds will thank you.

5. Carrot Cream Cheese Sandwich

That’s not a pimento cheese sandwich you’re looking at in the photo. It’s a carrot cream cheese sandwich, and it’s phenomenal. 

It’s rich and filling with just a hint of sweetness from the carrots and raisins. It’s an interesting flavor combination that will blow you away.

Like the cucumber sandwiches above, these are great for tea parties or brunches. 

6. Fast and Fancy Philadelphia Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches

These adorable, open-faced tea sandwiches are a breeze to make. You need 6 ingredients and 10 to 15 minutes to prepare them. 

They don’t require any cooking, only cutting, spreading, and stacking. Plus, they’re small and cute, so no one will feel guilty about taking two or three.

7. Open-Faced Tomato Sandwich

As much as I love a giant, overstuffed sandwich, sometimes, simpler is better. And that’s certainly the case with this four-ingredient tomato sandwich. 

It’s flavorful, fresh, juicy, and herby. I could eat about five of these in one sitting. That’s how good they are. 

This recipe is a staple in my house in the summer. Whenever I have an overabundance of fresh garden tomatoes, this is how I like to use them. 

8. Cucumber and Avocado Sandwich

Cucumber sandwiches are delicious. Unfortunately, they aren’t always as filling as everyone who tries them would like. 

If that’s a problem you have with them, try this recipe instead. It still has all the cool, creamy flavor of a cream cheese and cucumber sandwich. 

However, adding three tablespoons of mashed avocado makes it a much heartier sandwich. Avocados are full of healthy fats and even have a little protein. 

So if you need a cucumber sandwich that’ll satisfy you and keep you full, this recipe is perfect.

9. Turkey Cranberry Cream Cheese Sandwich

This sandwich is everything you love about Thanksgiving in one convenient package. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait until the holiday season to enjoy it. 

Just hit up your local deli counter for some fresh turkey. Then, head over to the fruit aisle for cranberry sauce. 

Throw those together on bread with some cream cheese, arugula, and olive oil, and you’re all set. It’s not the traditional Turkey Day meal, but it tastes close enough. 

I like to make these sandwiches mid-summer when I’m really craving some holiday cheer. You can also whip these up with leftover Thanksgiving turkey after the holidays.

10. Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches

Do you prefer fish to poultry? You’re not alone, as plenty of people would choose salmon over turkey any day. If that sounds like you, here’s the sandwich recipe you need. 

It’s a simple, open-faced sandwich using a flaky French baguette. Smear the dill and sour cream-enhanced cream cheese over the baguette. 

Then, add your smoked salmon and whatever garnish you like best. That’s all it takes! You can have a half dozen of these ready in 20 minutes or less!

Give it a try if you want a fancy sandwich to wow your guests.
