  • 1 Loaf White Bread (20 ounces - or at least 18 slices of bread)
  • 1 Recipe for Benedictine Spread


  1. Open the loaf of bread and lay out all the slices. Pair 2 of them up together, giving you 9 sandwiches (with a top and bottom slice).
  2. On one slice of the bread, place 2-3 tablespoons of Benedictine spread on top. Spread out evenly getting all the way to the edges. Place the other slice on top. Repeat until you have 9 sandwiches made.
  3. With s serrated bread knife, gently cut off the crust on all 4 sides - making sure no  brown edges remain and the sandwich is a small square, 
  4. Gently slice each sandwich on the diagonal down the middle, giving you two triangle halves. Repeat with other sandwiches. You will have 18 triangles.
  5. Place on a serving platter and enjoy!
