Smorgastrata!!!!!

Inspired by "Regular Ordinary Swedish Mealtime":

I decided to create an easy dish for summertime.


Smorgastrata
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1 unsliced loaf of your favorite bread

1/2 # each of:
cooked shrimp
cooked bay scallops
boiled ham, sliced thin
swiss cheese, in 1/2' strips

4 hard boiled eggs, sliced

for the salad layer, use judgment in proportion of:
romaine lettuce
tomato, sliced
carrot, shredded
peppers, mushrooms, etc., or any variety of veggies you'd like

for the sauces:
1 c. mayonnaise (It's good for you)
1 heaping TBL prepared horseradish
1 TBL ketchup

Butter, softened (Smor!)

Divide mayo into 2 bowls; add horseradish to one and ketchup to the other; blend well.

Slice bread in thirds horizontally. Place top slice of bread, crust side down, in appropriate bowl or on a plate. Spread with mayo-horseradish. Cover with shrimp and scallops. Add next layer of bread. Spread with mayo-ketchup. Cover with salad. Add final bread slice bottom side up on top. Butter well. Arrange strips of cheese and rolled ham alternately in a design around to edges. Place a slice of tomato in the center. Decorate with slices of hard boiled egg, and anything you'd like to add (red pepper, olives, cucumber, lox, shrimp, etc.). Cover and refrigerate or serve immediately.

This Smorgastrata is a model. Build your own according to your likes and what you have on hand. There are no rules. It's not fancy. This is Regular! ;)
