Pickled Beets and Pate Smørrebrød Recipe

Pickled Beets and Pate Smørrebrød is the best sandwich you will ever try. The dish literally takes under 10 minutes to prepare. All our friends and family that tried the sandwich, were blown away by the combination.

Pickled Beets and Pate Smørrebrød is a simple Danish, open face sandwich. The toppings can be adjusted with a variety of options. Pickled Beets and Pate Smørrebrødis are best with either whole wheat or rye bread.

We were introduced to this combo while traveling to Denmark last winter by one of the local guys. He said you cannot just come to Denmark and not try this dish. The combo sounded very odd, but out of curiosity we tried and it completely changed the way we look at beets.

Where to Buy the Pickled Beets

Pickled beets can be found in most European stores, often sold in jars. In US, they can be found in Trader Joe's and Aldi stores. Sometimes they come in thick slices, you may want to cut them in half.
