Pumpernickel Surprise

As the holiday parties continue, we thought we would share some more appetizer inspiration!


  • 8 small slices (1/4 inch thick) pumpernickel bread

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish, with beets or plain

  • 4 ounces smoked trout fillets, pin bones and skin removed, fillets flaked into large pieces

  • 16 small sprigs dill

  • 1 lemon


  1. Cut each slice of bread on the diagonal in half.

  2. Spread one side of each with butter, then with horseradish.

  3. Top each with a piece of smoked trout and a sprig of dill.

  4. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside until ready to serve (up to 2 hours).

  5. Before serving, squeeze lemon juice over tops.
