Smorrebrod - egg salad and "saltimbocca"

Smørrebrød – egg salad and “saltimbocca”

We Danes love our smørrebrød, there are many classics (not to be messed with) but essentially they are open faced sandwich’s with whatever you like. These use some of the leftovers from our christmas dinners..

Egg Salad

  • Home made mayo
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Sour cream
  • Curry powder
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Lemon juice
  • Chervil

Mix the mayo, sour cream, curry powder and lemon juice, chop the eggs and combine. Season with salt & pepper and lemon juice. Chop the chervil and add.


  • Leftover roast pork
  • Leftover dried parma ham
  • Sage

Cut a nice slice form the roast pork, heat on a pan. Fry a couple of sage leaves in some oil. Spread a thin layer of mustard on the pork and layer everything together.



Eggy bread B.L.T.

Sandwiches make a great snack or a complete meal.  This turned out to be a variation on the classic (B)acon, (L)ettuce, (T)omato sandwich. Tomatoes and bacon are a no brainer, so I kept them. Instead of plain lettuce i substituted for tasty flat leaf parsley. Plain white bred was replaced by eggy bread.


  • Slices of bread
  • Egg
  • milk
  • Bacon
  • Tomatos
  • Flatleaf parsley
  • Onion
  • Mayo
  • Chili sauce

Fry the bacon, place on kitchen paper to drain.

Whisk together the egg and milk, season with salt and pepper. Place 2 slices of bread in the mixture to soak for a couple of minutes.

Fry the bread slices on both sides until golden brown.

Spread som mayo and chili sauce on both pieces of bread and assemble the sandwich.
