DIRECTIONS

  • To build danish sandwiches, a slice or two of whatever chosen topping (�pålæg�) is placed on a slice of buttered bread. Toppings are artfully added to create a tasty sandwich -- with visual appeal!
  • When at home with friends, people pass dishes of sliced breads around the table, and then to pass around each dish of toppings, and make their own sandwiches.
  • In Denmark, Danish sandwiches are typically eaten with a fork and knife.
