Cheese Sandwich with Sour Cream Spread, Radishes & Alfalfa Sprouts


Cheese Sandwich with Sour Cream Spread, Radishes & Alfalfa Sprouts

This is what I call the Spring Sandwich among cheese sandwiches.  Now, when I think of spring sandwiches, I always remember the sandwiches my mom used to make around Easter (but really, all through spring).  They always had alfalfa sprouts on them; the taste of these sprouts is fresh, clean and crisp and is (for me) one of the symbols of spring.  I admit, I am not a big fan of radishes by themselves.  But…in this cheese sandwich they are absolutely delicious!  The spice gets absorbed by the sour cream spread, yet they add the (by now well-known) “umpf” to the sandwich as well as extra crunch.

The cheese that my mom used to use does not exist here in the US, but I found a replacement that will surprise you AND works great.

  • 4 slices good whole wheat bread
  • unsalted Butter (or other butter spread)
  • 2 triangles Laughing Cow (Original) Cheese
  • sour Cream Spread (Recipe Follows)
  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced.



  • Thinly spread a thin layer of butter on each slice of bread.
  • Cover 2 slices of the bread with the cheese and top with the radish slices and a handful of alfalfa sprouts.
  • Spread some of the Sour Cream spread out over the other 2 slices of bread and put these on top of the cheese, radish & sprout containing half.
  • Cut diagonally.

Makes: 2 sandwiches



Sour Cream Spread:

  • 3 tbsp. sour cream
  • 3 tbsp. crème fraîche
  • 2 tsp. chopped alfalfa sprouts
  • pinch of salt

Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.  The spread can certainly be prepared the evening before.
