THE DIVINE SANDWICH


Growing up in a Danish household…sandwiches were something to behold.  Open faced, a number of layers, and always eaten with a knife and a fork.  We learned at a young age to properly use a knife and fork.
Some Danish Sandwiches include:  (Most were made on homemade Rye Bread). Homemade Liver Pate, a dollop of real mayonnaise usually topped with pickled red cabbage or a few slices of pickled beets.  Thinly sliced sausage meats, and cheese, again topped with pickled beets.  Pickled Herring anyone?  I know, an acquired taste.  Oh, I almost forgot.  There is a Danish Cheese called Tilsit.  You have never smelled a nastier smelling cheese than this...trust me....but wow does it taste good.  What about a Chocolate Sandwich?  Yes…we had these lovely wafer thin chocolate slices – on top of generously buttered rye bread, chocolate sandwiches with just a hint of orange.  Growing up, these were all my favorite.
This sandwich made today, using my Healthy Homemade Gluten Free Bread, looks like your typical Roast Beef Sandwich. Nope, not Roast Beef.  We had Hormone Free Sirloin Steaks for dinner the other night….wow filling.  This was leftover steak, thinly sliced, with aged cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and see the lettuce?….yes from the garden!   So sweet!  A simple Beef Sandwich that was quickly devoured… after years of not eating Beef,  I’d forgotten how good a Beef Sandwich could be.
