Ingredients (~16 servings)

  • 20 slices (4 slices × 5 layers) of toast bread
  • 4 ham slices, for toast
  • 4 cheese slices, for toast
  • 600g (1.3 lbs) cream cheese, half cold
  • 400g (14.1 oz) sour cream, thick, cold

  • 3 red peppers, pickles, choped
  • 4-5 cucumber pickles, thinly sliced or chopped
  • 2 tbsp anucleated olives, sliced
  • 1 tbsp capers, desalted
In a large mixing bowl, pour the cold sour cream and beat briefly with a hand mixer. Add the cream cheese and beat well until you have a thick mixture. From this mixture you remove approximately ⅓ and refrigerate for later, for garnish. In the remaining ⅔ add the chopped onion and mix well.
In a serving platter place 4 of the slices of toast in the same horizontal plane, put a spoonful of the mixture of cream cheese/ onion in the center of each slice and spread to cover all the bread and the gaps between the bread.
Above the first layer of cream put slices of ham.
Cover with another 4 slices bread.
Spread the bread again with the mixture of cream cheese / onion and cover with slices of cheese.
Cover with slices of bread.
Spread a third time the bread with cream cheese and scatter the chopped pieces of pepper.
Repeat the same in the fourth layer, placing 4 slices of bread and spreading the last dose of the mixture of cream cheese/ onion. Cover with pickled cucumber, few olives and some capers.
Cover all with final layer the last 4 bread slices.
With the mixture of cream cheese, we kept aside, brush well the sides of the cake…
