Good solid bread
Fresh cucumbers, washed (keep peel on)
Small green bell peppers, washed, stem and seeds removed
Large eggs, boiled and peeled
Salt and fresh ground black pepper
Wash cucumber and green pepper, pat dry and then thinly slice them. Take good fresh bread and remove the crust. Take a wine glass or round biscuit cutter and cut out circles of the bread. Spread the bread with mayonnaise. Place a green pepper on the mayonnaise and add a thin slice of cucumber in the middle. Slice the boiled eggs and top each cucumber with an egg slice. Salt and pepper to taste. You can grate the boiled eggs or add a thin radish slice instead of the egg. This recipe is great for teas and Civil War balls.
