HYGGE – an open-face sandwich with Camembert and Black Currant Jelly

An open-face sandwich with cheese  and jelly with a cup of tea or coffee is a great way to take a break in the afternoon. Different kinds of cheese are served instead of a dessert when eating open-face sandwiches. There is a large variety of Danish cheese to be found in many parts of the world, such as Havarti, camembert, brie and 2-3 varieties of blue cheese making it easy to make Danish open-face sandwiches. If you can’t find Danish cheese, it’s okay to use another type. This sandwich is made with Camembert with Black Currant Jelly. Be sure and take the Camembert out of the refrigerator a few hours before using. Lots of Danes let the Camembert stay out of the refrigerator all the time. The softer, the better.
