I made this with a horseradish paste instead of a 'sauce' which meant the consistency was much thicker. I also made it as a sandwich with two slices of bread instead of open. Perfect for lunch at work. Yum.

Sorry we didn't read the 'tip' above re: quark... silly us. Will now try this for a Saturday brunch. Many thanks!

What is quark? Thought that was in quantum mechanics... nutinos, neutrons, electrons and quarks... or Lewis Carrol! Please let us know the what and where to buy and we will definitely try it out... as we do with a majority of Good Food Recipes. Thanks.

Not quite sure how an open sandwich is going to work in a lunchbox..... not very practical! Mix seems a bit "wet". Overall not very impressed.
