Allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature for approximately 30 minutes outside of the refrigerator.
Thoroughly combine with ¼ cup freshly chopped chives. Recommend: Use scissors to chop small pieces of chives directly over a small mixing bowl with the cream cheese.
Add chive cream cheese (either pre-mixed or homemade) to a Ziploc bag. Snip one corner to create a piping bag.
Pipe the cream cheese onto the face of petite rye bread.
Delicately fold thin slices of Krakus Polish Deli Ham over the cream cheese, using the cheese as a base to hold the ham in place.
Garnish canapés with assorted toppings, such as asparagus spears, Polish dill pickles, hardboiled eggs, radishes, and carrots. Serve with chives as garnish (optional).
