L-R: Salami, Roast Beef, and Matjes Brötchen

This is more of an assembly guide than recipe, but either way enjoy! (See my review of Tauber for the background on these sandwiches.)

MATJES

1. Cut a thick (2″) slice of a loaf of fresh bread and butter it.
2. Place a piece of crunchy lettuce such as mesclun on one side of the bread, a slice of tomato on the other.
3. Place two slices of boiled egg and a square of herring (preferably Matjes) cut to the width of the bread in between and slightly overlapping the lettuce and egg.
4. Top the lettuce and tomato with a dollop of salty butter (an anchovy butter would go well), and put a triangle of lemon on the fish.
5. Garnish one of the dollops of butter with a small amount of caviar, and garnish the other dollop with a sprig of fresh dill.

ROAST BEEF

1. Cut a thick (2″) slice of a loaf of fresh bread and butter it.
2. Place a slice of tomato on one corner of the bread, and a piece of crunchy lettuce such as mesclun on the other.
3. Place thinly sliced roast beef in between and slightly overlapping the lettuce and tomato.
4. Place a dollop of salty butter on the tomato and the lettuce, and a spoonful of herbed mayonnaise in the middle.
5. Garnish one dollop of butter with a parsley leaf, and the other dollop with a thin slice of red bell pepper. Top with a ring of white onion.

SALAMI

1. Cut a thick (2″) slice of a loaf of fresh bread and butter it.
2. Place a slice of tomato on one end of the bread, a slice of hard boiled egg on the other, and a thinly sliced cucumber in the middle.
3. Place six slices of salami and one slice of cucumber in between and slightly overlapping the tomato and egg.
4. Put a dollop of butter on the tomato and egg.
5. Garnish one dollop of butter with a thin slice of red bell pepper and a parsley leaf, and the other dollop with a slice of pimento-stuffed olive.
