“Patentlåda” (Swedish Hash) / Patentlåda

A recipe from “Cattelins Kokebok” (Cattelin’s Cook Book) published by Den Norske Bokklubb in 1977

An old Swedish classic. Very common both for lunch and an evening meal. Earlier it was usual to have ramkins (in Sweden nicknamed “låda” which actually means box) of clay or porcelain. Today there are not many of these left, but that should not prevent anyone from making this dish. It is also nice to fry eggs in the normal fashion. It is important to remember that the ham should be smoked.

I love the way the Swedish nickname their favourite dishes. “Patentlåda” directly translated means Patented Box – Ted
