Open Faced Radish Cream Cheese Sandwich – The Radish ‘Smørrebrød’

Jump to Recipe
Smørrebrød Recipe @ Recipes From A Pantry

I love red.

As in my kitchen units – red, red, red.

Slow cooker, waffle maker, blender,  spatula – all red.

My favourite present from OH – cashmere coat – red.

Outdoor chairs – red.

OH’s hair – red.

You get the gist right? What does this have to do with today’s recipe? Nothing. Just wanted to share the red love around.

Amongst all the red gifts we got over Christmas was a Scandinavian cookbook which I spent a lot of time drooling over. Especially the gorgeous open sandwiches aka Smørrebrød with various exciting toppings over fresh rye bread.

Radish and Cream Cheese Smørrebrød recipe @ Recipes From A Pantry

So when I found myself with a whole load of radishes and some fresh bread the obvious thing to do was make my version of a ‘Smørrebrød’ minus the rye. It is fun to make with the kiddoes and a colourful way to use up your summer harvest of radishes. I see this pretty open faced sandwich making an appearance at a lot of summer bunches. This also makes and easy lunchbox idea if you top it with another slice of bread.

Plus the radishes are red’ish. So maybe my opening sentence had something to do with this sandwich after all.

I am entering this recipe in the summer blogger competition. Do check out their rather fabulous sales and grab yourself a few bits and pieces. I certainly will.

  1. Mmm … radishes and cream cheese! I would never have thought of this combo, but I can imagine how that creamy cheesy taste complements the hot radish. It’s a very pretty sandwich, too!

  2. 5 stars
    This is something we make in my country for summer breakfast. With homemade curd cheese, onions, raddish and dollop of sour cream ahhh….memories!
