The juicy new Danish potatoes are complimented by oven-baked ham and crème of smoked cheese when our Head Chef, Jimmi Bengtsson, re-interpret the Danes’ summer favourite: the open potato sandwich. We invite you to find the recipe below.

Every spring we experiment with new tasty versions of the classic Danish favourite: the open potato sandwich.
Here we oven-bake the smoked ham to give a great crunchy, slightly salty, contrast to the juicy new Danish potatoes and the creamy smoked cheese.
