Using rye bread (traditional Danish smorgasbord)
rye bread is the very foundation of traditional danish open sandwiches 
("smorgasbord"). it is sliced in thin slices, say 5 mm (0.2 in), using 
a sharp knife, then spread with cold butter and topped with whatever 
you like. here are a few examples: 
 
- pieces of pickled heering, decorated with raw onion rings 
- thin slices of salami, decorated with raw onion rings 
- thin slices of any kind of sausage or cold meats 
- pate topped with cornichons / gherkins 
- thin slices of cold roastbeef, topped with pickles 
- ham with mayonnaise 
- boiled egg with mayonnaise and tomato 
- slices of cold, cooked potato topped with mayonaise and fried 
onion rings or fresh chives 
- kippers with chives 
- thinly sliced smoked filet with scrambled eggs 
- smoked whitefish with thin bell pepper rings 
- tomato with raw onion and chives 
- strong cheese with raw onion 
- tuna with mayonnaise 
 
basically you can top the bread with any kind of food you like. 
 
here are a few pics found by google (search google images for the danish 
word "smørrebrød" or the swedish word "smörgåsbord") that i think look 
"authentic":
