Kartoffelmad – Danish open-faced potato sandwich

Recipe - Kartoffelmad - Danish open-faced potato sandwich

The Kartoffelmad (open-faced potato sandwich) is a beloved Danish smørrebrød classic. It is also one of the only vegetarian smørrebrød classics, and if you use vegan mayonnaise, it is vegan too. In Denmark, the open-faced potato sandwich is often sprinkled with bacon, but I have left that out and added sunflower seeds instead for some crunch. You can make the sandwich with all kinds of potatoes, but I think the smaller ones are the easiest to work with, as some of the larger, more mealy potatoes will fall apart when sliced. If you are using small, thin-skinned potatoes, you can leave the peel on.
