  • French bread
  • Spreadable butter or ham salad
  • Boiled eggs
  • Pickles
  • Ham and hard salami thin slices
  • Hard cheese Edam
  • Tomato

  • Boil the eggs for 9 minutes, so the yolks keep their nice yellow color. Cool them down in cold water. Peel the finished hard-boiled eggs and cut them into circles.
  • Slice the french bread into slices about ½ inch thick.
  • Spread the butter or ham salad over the slices.
  • Garnish one side of the sandwich with rolled ham or hard salami and the other with cheese and hard-boiled egg.
  • Continue garnishing the chlebíček with pickles, tomato wedges, and a sprig of parsley.
  • In the end, sprinkle the chili flakes over the hard-boiled egg.


Put the chlebíčky on a tray and wrap them with a food-quality film, so they don‘t dry out. Remove the plastic wrap before serving.
