Ukrainian Sandwiches


"These open faced Ukrainian sandwiches are very easy to make and are really good. If you can find Eastern European style sausage then try it with that, otherwise use your favorite cold cuts. They are called 'Kanapki' in Ukrainian."

We tried these because my fella is working on a project about the Ukraine, and I'm glad we did! Super-yummy and super-easy. I used turkey kielbasa, sliced lengthwise and browned in a pan, and we skipped the hard-boiled eggs (mostly because I forgot about them). We did this twice, once with cold (but browned) kielbasa and once with the sausage right out of the pan; I'd recommend using it cold, otherwise it melts the cream cheese mixture and you end up with an incredibly messy sandwich. We loved the cream cheese mixture, although I think next time I might just mix the garlic with cream cheese, and see if it's as good without the extra fat from the butter. All in all - great combination! Thanks! EDIT: Made again, skipping the butter but including the hard-boiled eggs. I think skipping the butter did make the garlic spread slightly less awesome - it doesn't spread as smoothly, and obviously tastes more strongly of cream cheese - but it's still pretty darn good. If you're not totally averse to eggs, definitely take the time to do those. Adds a nice creaminess to the sandwich.


I grew up on these. Although we made ours with rye bread and thin sliced ham. Also adding a dash of paprika to the cream cheese butter mixture adds some color.

I found this recipe to be quite good, but there are a few things I would recommend when making them next time. Use a ciabatta loaf or slice larger pieces of french bread. Be sure to slice the tomato, sausage, cucumber very thinly otherwise you'll have problems getting it all in your mouth! Also, I think I would like to use more garlic (I love the flavor of garlic) and let it sit in the cream cheese/butter mixture for an hour or two so they take on more of the garlic flavor. This is a great sandwich though and I loved how unique it was!
