Austrian Pumpernickel

Austrian PumpernickelVegan


Austrian Pumpernickel is a lighter interpretation of traditional pumpernickel.

It is dotted with flavorful caraway seeds, which have a slight anise essence. Cracked wheat and rye meal also add to the flavor. It is 100% whole wheat, making it a high-fiber favorite of those who like bread with lots of personality.

Serving Suggestion

Austrian Pumpernickel makes a great sandwich. It is also delicious toasted on the side with soup, particularly cream-based soups which often have caraway seeds in them. Some love pumpernickel cubed and served with spinach dip.

Smoked Trout Melt

Adapted from Relaxed Cooking with Curtis Stone, Random House Publishing

10 ounces smoked trout, skin and any bones removed;
    flaked into large chunks
½ cup crème fraiche
1 gherkin pickle, finely diced
1 ½ tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper
4 slices Breadsmith Austrian Pumpernickel
¼ cucumber, thinly sliced
4 slices Swiss cheese

Preheat the broiler. Toss the trout in a medium bowl with crème fraiche, gherkin, 1 tablespoon of the dill and the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Place the Austrian Pumpernickel slices on a baking sheet in a single layer. Broil for about 1 minute per side. Then top the toast with cucumber and then the trout mixture. Broil for about 2 minutes or until the trout is warm. Add the slices of cheese, and broil again until the cheese has melted and is slightly golden, about 3 minutes. Garnish with remaining dill and serve these open face sandwiches immediately.
