If you have some slightly softer aspic from making stock or a roast, it looks really pretty piled onto the sandwich.yup, definitely gonna try that
And yeah, for a party, the bread isn't supposed to show. Wish I could find the picture from the Danish Embassy party we went to. Pretty sure the bread showed on those platters. I could see the type of bread I liked and left the ones I didn't LOL tried to make my little brother eat them.
Actually "smorgasboard" is a mispronunciation of "smörgåsbord", which means a sandwich table (board/plank). The Danish version of that is "smørrebrødsbord". To a Scandinavian, a sandwich table is an assortment of sandwiches. yup, just like I said.
There are probably as many versions as there are chefs!
