    CarrolJ's Note:

    My DBIL was born in Norway and really likes his heritage dishes to eat. This is his favorite lunch or snack. He uses all kinds of breads...except what he calls (American) Air Bread. When I have visited it appears his preference is Pumpernickel and Sourdough. My sister says that when they go to Norway to visit DBIL's lifelong friend...that the friend's wife serves these open-faced sandwiches all day long. Any kind of meat and cheese can be used...I'm simply mentioning those which my DBIL seems to eat the most often. At Norwegian parties I have attended the 'open faced' sandwiches were premade with various meats and cheeses and stacked beautifully on a large platter.

      I made this without the meat and really enjoyed it! I used a whole grain mustard. Very tasty! Thanks! Made for ZWT#6 by a Looney Spoon Phoodie!

      Delish! I am somewhat ashamed to admit that I used "American Air Bread" for my sandwich, but it was all I had (it was whole wheat though at least!) To add a little structure to it, I toasted the bread first. Used Black Forest ham and spicy brown mustard. Excellent with the pickle and olive accompaniments. Thanks for sharing!

      Used ham and and spicy brown mustard -- this was so good, and so simple and of course, tasty. :) Stuck under the broiler for a moment and let the cheese get a little melty and it was all gooey and yummy!
