Desired amounts of juniper-flavored ham or "speck" is layered with cooked Swiss chard, goat cheese, tomato slices and basil on toasted German bread that is spread with creamy horseradish sauce.

  • Servings: 1


Meerrettich Sauce, creamy horseradish sauce
Swiss Chard
Riesling Wine & Chicken Broth
German Speck, pork cured in spices such as juniper berries and nutmeg), sliced ¼" thick
Altemburger Semi-soft German Goat Cheese
Large Fresh Basil
Rustic Dunkel (dark Tan) German Bread


Mix 1 tsp Meerrettich per 1 tbsp of mayonnaise (preferably olive oil-based), and place in refrigerator.

Saute the Swiss chard in Riesling wine and chicken broth until tender, about 15 minutes. Lightly fry the speck slices in a skillet until slightly brown. Thinly slice the Altemberger for ease in layering. Slice the tomato fairly hefty, about 3/4-inch thick. Toast the bread and spread liberally with the horseradish-mayonnaise. Layer the sandwich as follows: One slice of toasted bread, speck, tomato, basil, Altemburger, chard, speck, tomato, Altemburger, basil and a second slice of toasted bread.
