A yummy cheese appetizer for fans of pumpernickel bread. If you can't find the cocktail size loaves of pumpernickel (slices about the same dimensions as a cracker), just use regular pumpernickel bread and cut the slices into quarters. Number of servings assumes you use about 1 whole loaf, but you can make however many or however few you want. Sometimes I sprinkle with a little dill in place of the chives or use dill havarti. Amounts are approximate.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spread bread thinly with mustard.
  2. Top with cheese and shake chives over the top.
  3. Place under the broiler until cheese is melted and bubbly.

I just made this for a snack for myself. I used 2 regular pieces of pumpernickle bread and it was delicious. I am looking forward to making it with cocktail bread when we have company. Thanks for a great recipe.

The best appetizer ever. Served this at our New Year's Eve party, I made 2 batches and they were gone! I used cocktail rye and the dijon really gave it a nice flavour. I made them ahead of time and kept them cool on the cookie sheet until I needed them. They only need about 5 min under the broiler. My friend wanted the recipe and when I went to a party at her house she served them with the same success. Thanks!!!
