Polish Canape Butters (Polska Maslo)

NOTE: the "l" in maslo is pronounced as a "w". Kanapki rarely exceed 2 inches in diameter, are often silver-dollar-sized or even smaller (bite-size). At least two different kinds of bread should be used: Light and dark. In addition to commercially available party rye and similar rounds of white canapé bread, you can also prepare your own. Rogale (Polish-style large crescent rolls available in ethnic bakeries) as well as rod-type French bread (baguettes) can be sliced into thin rounds. Bakeries usually have commercial slicers and can do the job for you on request. You can also slice away the crust from a whole, unsliced loaf of Polish rye bread, slice it, and cut the slices into circles, squares, or triangles. The canapé bread is usually spread with plain or flavored butter and topped with lettuce or other greens, cold meats, cheese, fish, or hard-boiled egg slices, and garnished with fresh or pickled veggies, sauces, and the like. Others are covered with a layer of canapé spread and decorated with colorful trimmings. Here are but a few of the many spreads possible. Each amount depends on individual tastes.
