This dish can be served as light lunch or a small evening meal. You may want to toast the white bread slices in your toaster instead of frying them in butter in the frying pan.
I remember my mother serving sandwiches like these back when this book was new and fashionable. A little unusual for a boy in his early teens, but I quickly became used to it and I still make tartar sandwiches once in a while – Ted
Chiabatta eller Ciabatta (Italian pronunciation: [tʃaˈbatta], literally slipper bread) is an Italian white bread made from wheat flour, water, salt, and yeast, created in 1982 by a baker in Verona, Veneto, Italy, in response to the popularity of French baguettes. Ciabatta is somewhat elongated, broad, and flat, and is baked in many variations.
While panino indicates any kind of sandwich regardless of the bread used (whether slices or a bun), a toasted sandwich made from small loaves of ciabatta is known as panini (plural of panino) outside Italy.

Lyngør is a village area on a group of small islands in the municipality of Tvedestrand in Aust-Agder county, off the southeast coast of Norway. The village is about 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) northeast of Tvedestrand city center and also 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) south of the city of Risør.
Previously a popular home for sea captains, the village is accessible only by boat, has no cars, and is known for its scenic harbour and charming wooden houses. It is recognized as one of the best-preserved communities in Europe. Most of the buildings are now summer homes, but there are about 70 permanent, year-round residents. A hugely popular destination in the summer months, it has in later years struggled to maintain a stable permanent population. The community has a sail-making factory, a few restaurants that are open during the tourist season, and a famous general store.
The Scandinavian open sandwich (Danish: smørrebrød, Norwegian: smørbrød, Swedish: smörgås or macka) consists of one piece of buttered bread, often whole-grain rye bread (Danish & Norwegian: rugbrød, Swedish: rågbröd), topped with, for instance, cheese, cold steak, shrimps, smoked salmon, caviar, hard boiled eggs, bacon, herring, fish fillets, liver pâté (Danish: leverpostej, Norwegian: leverpostei Swedish: leverpastej), and/or small meatballs. This is typically complemented by some herbs and vegetables such as parsley, cold salad, thinly sliced cucumber, tomato wedges and/or pickled beets etc. on the same slice of bread.
Condiments, such as mayonnaise, or mayonnaise-based dressing is also often included in some form. An old traditional replacement for butter on a piece of bread with herring is pork fat. There are many variations associated with the smørrebrød/smørbrød/smörgås and there are even special stores, cafés and restaurants (especially in Denmark) that specialize in them.
