1969 Puzzle Sandwiches

What better way to celebrate our 5oth anniversary at Iowa PBS than with a 1969-style tea party? Featuring fancy sandwiches, of course.


  • 3 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 -5 slices crisp cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1 loaf each of white and whole wheat sandwich bread, frozen


Blend cream cheese, milk, Worcestershire and bacon to form a spread.

Cut bread slices into 2-inch rounds with a cookie cutter. Spread half of the rounds with the cheese mixture. Cut the remaining rounds into Double Rounds, Stripes and Checkerboards.

For the Double Rounds, use a small cookie cutter to cut a tiny circle from the center of rounds. Fit the tiny whole wheat circles in the holes of the white ones and vice versa.

For Stripes, use the 2-inch cookie cutter to cut a football-shaped slice off the sides of the rounds. Alternate white and whole wheat.

For Checkerboards, Cut rounds into fourths and make checkerboards of white and whole wheat.
