Latvian Canapés

0

The canapé in the middle is a classic at any Latvian party!   It is actually a classic at any northern European gathering, but my latvian grandmother tought me how to make them. The other 2 are just variations made with creamed herrings…

It is also a good excuse to finish those Easter eggs… 😉

Ingredients:

  • Hard boiled eggs – sliced
  • Sandwich bread
  • Butter
  • Pickled Herrings in sour cream, soused herrings (Matjes), pickled herrings in sour cream and red beets  – cut in stripes.

Directions:

  1. Toast the sandwich bread slightly. Cut the crust off.
  2. Make sure the butter is soft, then spread the toasts lightly with butter. Cut each toast in 4 – making 4 squares or 4 triangles.
  3. Peel and slice the eggs with an egg slicer.
  4. Add 1 – 2 slices of egg to each mini toast, add 1 or 2 herring stripes, and decorate.

This is just a mini recipe, but it is my after Easter favorite!
