Recipe: Danish canapes with thyme

The miniatures lunch
April 19, 2012


A couple of years ago I tried many Danish recipes, and my favourite was the smoerrebroed (or smørrebrød), canapes with rye bread or white bread, and many combination of ingredients: Danish butter, fried fish, Hungarian salami, radishes, tomatoes, Dana Blue cheese, tartar of beef, boiled or raw eggs...

ThymeFor my miniatures lunch I made some tiny smoerrebroed: rye bread spread with Danish butter flavored with thyme and garnished with cherry tomatoes for the miniature effect.
