Store-bought Rye will do the trick.

Smoked Trout on Rye

Mackerel works nicely with this as well, and if you’re veggie only, sub out the trout for a slice of cucumber, which pairs well with the horseradish crème fraîche.

2 pieces sliced rye bread, cut in thirds

3 tbsp crème fraîche

1 tablespoon freshly grated horseradish
