Under 30: Danish Open-Faced Rye Sandwich


Serves: 2 | Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 20 mins

After our amazing weekend in Copenhagen, we wanted to re-create what is perhaps their most famous delicacy. Sometimes known as snaps and sometimes known as smΓΈrrebrΓΈd, it was an absolute delight to try on our Food Tour of Copenhagen. The open-faced rye sandwiches are most often done with red onions, pickles, mayonnaise, eggs and beetroot, and now back in Sheffield, here is our attempt at it...


Ingredients:

- 1/2 red onion, very thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
- salted butter
- 8 slices rye bread
- 4 tbsp mayonnaise
- 2 medium cooked beetroot, thinly sliced
- 2 radishes, thinly sliced
- 4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and quartered
- small handful fresh dill
- 16 pickled cornichons, diced

Instructions:

1. Combine the red onion and vinegar in a bowl. Leave to pickle for 20 mins.
2. Meanwhile, spread a thin layer of butter on one side of the bread slices, then divide the mayonnaise between them. Arrange the beetroot, radishes, hard-boiled eggs, pickled red onion and dill fronds on top of the bread.
3. To serve, sprinkle with the coronations and season with sea salt and black pepper.
