Serves 4


  • 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tsp. bottled horseradish, drained
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 12 3" slices square cocktail pumpernickel bread
  • Smoked salmon, for serving
  • Sliced cucumber or radish, for serving


    Active time: 5 minutes
    Total time: 35 minutes

    In a small bowl, mix together butter, horseradish and black pepper. Spread 1 tsp. butter mixture on 1 slice of bread and cover with another slice. Continue the process using 4 additional slices; do not butter the top slice.

    Repeat with remaining 6 slices and butter mixture (you'll have 2 bread stacks). Refrigerate about 30 minutes.

    Just before serving, cut each bread stack vertically into 6 slices. Serve with smoked salmon and sliced cucumber or radish.
