Chef Tom – Sink Your Teeth Into a Smörgåstårta

This came by my feed and I had to share it with y’all. I’ve now seen dozens of amazing styles and recipes. I love that it looks sweet but is actually savory. Not for the beginner, but if you’re looking to wow your guests, once they finally hug you on the way in to your home, this would be an amazing main course.

Swedish Sandwich Cake, will bring out the culinary artist in you. Intricate layers united by a cream cheese/yogurt spread stepped up in flavor with delicious smoked salmon. Add an egg salad and a most beautiful array of color on top, and you’ll have a show-stopping surprise in both taste and texture.

Swedish Sandwich Cake

Ingredients:
12 slices white bread

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 cup cream cheese

For the salmon layer:

150 g smoked salmon (plus 20 g for decorating the top)

1/4 cup Greek yogurt/cream cheese mixture

1 1/2 Tbsp chopped chives

2 Tbsp lemon juice

touch of pepper

For the egg salad layer:

3 boiled eggs, minced

1/2 Tbsp parsley, minced

1/2 Tbsp lemon juice

2 Tbsp mayonnaise

salt and pepper to taste

To assemble:

smoked salmon rolled into rosettes

2-3 small radishes, thinly sliced

1 carrot, thinly sliced and rolled

a sprinkle of chopped chives, plus some longer strands

a handful of pea shoots, or flat leaf parsley

Directions:
Cut the crusts off of the sliced white bread. You can use the crust to make croutons or breadcrumbs.

Mix up the salmon mixture and refrigerate.

Make up the egg salad and refrigerate.

Assemble 4 slices onto a large square dish.

Take salmon mixture and egg salad out of the fridge.

Spread some of the yogurt/cream cheese mixture all over the bread slices and sprinkle with some of the chopped chives.

Take the salmon mixture and spread it on top of the yogurt/cream cheese layer, and place four more slices of the bread on top.

Again, spread the yogurt/cream cheese mixture, and sprinkle some

chopped chives. Take the eggs salad and spread it on top creating the second layer.

Add the last four slices of bread, spread the last of the yogurt/cream cheese mixture and decorate the top with the radish rounds, pea shoot or parsley greens, salmon rosettes, carrots rolls, chopped chives, and strands.

You can follow what we did as you can see in the pictures, or use your own creativity and make it your own. Refrigerate.
