These sandwiches are perfect as an appetizer, snack or a breakfast. In a Slavic culture it is common to have mini sandwiches when you are having friends over for tea. People get pretty creative with making all sorts of appetizer sandwiches.
My sister shared this recipe with me many years ago. I never stop on a first or a second sandwich, really like the the flavors of the sweet carrots, garlic and creaminess of the cheese.

- Add grated cheese, pressed garlic, and mayonnaise to the mixing bowl with the grated carrots. Stir to combine.
