fine lunch selection


Just to give an idea of a nice selection of bread slices that add to a fine danish lunch.

Here we have home made Schwarz-bread or Pumpernickel or ‘rugbrød’ (the danish name). You can easily make such a bread when you follow this recipe like i did as well. It gives a really tasty foundation for a delicious lunch and is very healthy at the same time. The bread and also the topping will keep you going with lots of energy until evening.

lunch bread selection

This selection consists of four slices of dark bread:

one slice with Rucola salad, Egg in Curry dressing, Danbo (strong danish cheese) and some Rosemary leaves,

one slice with liver sausage, thin slices of cucumber and some chives,

one slice with thin slices of turkey filet, radish and Rosemary leaves and

one slice with a slice of Edamer (a milder chese), green salad, tomatoes, fresh Basil leaves.

To give it a crunchy edge i also added some sweet, raw carrots at the side. They are refreshing when you serve them right from the fridge, peel them and chop them into four long pieces. This is also a good idea for a lunch dish that you can take with you to work, then you can chew the carrots for stress relief.

Hopefully you got some inspiration for a delightful lunch :) , note that the toppings are really following the danish lunch kitchen ‘smørrebrød’ and might not be everyone’s favorite.
