Ingredients
  • 8 slices thin-sliced dense German-style rye or pumpernickel bread

  • 3 ounces fresh goat milk cheese

  • 1/4 cup black olive or tapenade spread

  • 1 15-ounce jar roasted red peppers

Directions
  1. You will need a coffin-shaped cookie cutter. To make the shape without a cookie cutter, cut sandwich in half crosswise and cut each half into 3 pieces with cut at a slight angle. Cut corners from top of each piece to create a coffin shape.

  2. Spread half of bread slices with goat cheese and half with black olive or tapenade spread.

  3. Drain roasted red peppers and pat dry. Arrange peppers on top of goat cheese, cutting them to make a uniform layer. Invert the bread covered with olive spread and place it over the red peppers to make sandwiches.

  4. Cut out 6 coffins from each sandwich with coffin cutter and arrange on a serving tray. Cut out enough thin 2-inch strips and 1.5-inch strips from remaining red peppers to form a cross on each coffin and lay strips on coffins.
