Cheese Gratinated Vegetables / Ostegratinerte Grønnsaker

If you think it’s a lot of work to first cook the vegetables and then gratinate them afterwards, you can use deep-frozen vegetables as a starting point.

Deep frozen broccoli or a blend of summer vegetables are excellent. Put the vegetables deep frozen in the mould and pour the sauce over them. Calculate 4-5 minutes longer in the oven for the frozen ones.

Baked Potato Variations / Bakt Potet Variasjoner

An appatizer/lunch recipe found in “Cappelens Kokebok”
published in  1995

Baked Potato Variations / Bakt Potet Variasjoner

Baking is a great way to cook potatoes. They can be eaten as regular boiled potatoes, but can also be served as an appetizer or main course together with suitable accessories. You should choose quite large potatoes, but it is also possible to bake smaller ones. Mealy varieties are best suited. Note that it is not a good idea to wrap the potatoes in aluminum foil. They get a much better taste and texture without.

Lamb and Potato Skewers / Lammekjøtt og Poteter på Spidd

Meat and small new potatoes can be thread on the same skewer if the potatoes are boiled a little in advance. Beef can be grilled in the same way. If you have straight, small branches of rosemary, about 20 cm / 8 inche long, these can be used as skewers. Let them lay in water 2 hours before grilling, it makes for dramatic and unusual barbeque.

Cannelloni – Baked and Stuffed Pasta Rolls / Innbakte og Fylte Pastaruller

Cannelloni (pronounced [kannelˈloːni]; Italian for “large reeds”) are a cylindrical type of pasta generally served baked with a filling and covered by a sauce in Italian cuisine. Some types of cannelloni need to be boiled beforehand, while for others it is enough to use a more dilute sauce or filling.

Popular stuffings include spinach and ricotta or minced beef. The sauces typically used are Napoletani underneath and besciamella sauce to cover the top.

A calzone from ”Pizza” a book in the “Kjøkkenbiblioteket”  (Kitchen Library) series published by Aventura Forlag in 1992.
Calzone al Prosciutto Cotto Affumicato

This recipe originates from the Alto Adige region in northern Italy. Feel free to substitute ham with other types of pork. But do not cut out horseradish, it brings out a lot of flavor from the meat and apples. One variation is to form the calzone with an open top.
