Goat Cheese Pecan Finger Sandwiches

Pin It

The last time I ate a sandwich cut into triangles, I'm pretty sure I was five and there was peanut butter and jelly between the slices of bread.
Twenty years later, I'm once again eating sandwiches cut into triangles, but the filling is a bit more sophisticated (that being said, I still regularly eat pb&j ;)). These little sandwiches feature a goat and cream cheese mixture, pecans, parsley, and red pepper jelly. Trust me, it's a winning combination. Sweet and spicy all in one, these were a bit hit.
Make them up to 24 hours ahead of time and refrigerate. Slice just before serving and watch everyone indulge their inner five year old, crusts optional!

Goat Cheese-Pecan Finger Sandwiches Recipe

-4 oz. goat cheese, softened (I used a honey flavored one, but plain is fine)
-3 oz. light cream cheese, softened
-1/2 cup finely chopped toasted pecans
-2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
-1 loaf light white sandwich bread (I used all but the
-red pepper jelly (original recipe called for 1/3 cup, I didn't measure but had about half of an 11 oz. jar that I finished off)

1. Stir together goat cheese, cream cheese, pecans, and parsley.
2. To assemble sandwiches, spread cheese mixture on one slice of bread and red pepper jelly on another slice of bread. Place together and cut into four triangles. (Note-my cream cheese mixture wasn't quite soft enough to spread easily so I placed it in the microwave for about 15 seconds).
