Envelopes made of toast bread with sprats and pickled cucumbers

If you are planning a get-together with friends or a festive dinner, I recommend preparing a tasty and satisfying appetizer that will delight guests with its original taste, texture and appearance. Toast bread envelopes with sprats and pickled cucumbers turn out very appetizing, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

We will use white toast bread as the basis for the envelopes. It is important that the bread is as fresh as possible, then it will be easy to roll it into envelopes. Then bake the bread slices in the oven until golden brown to give the snack a crispy texture. Next, all that remains is to fill the bread envelopes with the cheese and egg mixture and decorate the appetizer with sprats and pickled cucumbers.

Advice! Small sprats are ideal for this appetizer. Small fish will look neat in envelopes. Be sure to try this recipe, it will become a real decoration for your table.

Recipe for making envelopes of toast bread with sprats and pickled cucumbers

Step-by-step instruction:

1. Roll out the slices of bread thinly with a rolling pin. Please note that the toast must be fresh, otherwise the bread will crumble.

2. Cut each slice of bread in half diagonally to form triangles.

3. Fold opposite corners of the bread to form “envelopes”. Secure the pieces with wooden toothpicks. Place the bread envelopes on a baking sheet or in a baking dish. Place the pieces in an oven preheated to 180 degrees for 10 minutes so that the products brown and become crispy.

4. Boil chicken eggs hard-boiled, cool in cold water, peel, and grate on a coarse grater. Grind the processed cheese in the same way and add it to the boiled eggs. For the recipe, processed cheese can be replaced with hard or creamy cheese, in any case it will turn out delicious.

5. Add a clove of garlic passed through a press, salt and ground black pepper to taste to the resulting mixture. Season the mixture with a small amount of mayonnaise. If desired, mayonnaise can be replaced with sour cream or homemade sauce.

6. Mix the ingredients until smooth.

7. Carefully remove toothpicks from the oven-dried bread envelopes. Fill the dough with the cheese and egg mixture.

8. In each envelope we insert one canned fish.

9. Add slices of pickled cucumber to the snack envelopes.

10. Decorate the appetizer with fresh dill.

11. Ready-made envelopes of toast bread with sprats and pickled cucumbers can be served immediately after cooking. Before guests arrive, the prepared snack can be kept in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours. The bread is well dried so it will remain crispy.

Bon appetit!
