Norwegian Boneless ‘Birds’ / Benløse ‘Fugler’

Boneless ‘birds’ is one of the old classic Norwegian meat dishes that is about to be forgotten. “Poor Man’s Birds”, slices of veal filled with bacon and parsley are worth the effort and taste delicious with stewed vegetables, boiled potatoes and sauce.

Norwegian Casserole with Lightly Salted Pork / Gryte med Lettsaltet Flesk

A classic casserole dish found in “Gryteretter” (Casseroles)published by Hjemmets Kokebokklubb in 1979Norwegian Casserole with Lightly Salted Pork / Gryte med Lettsaltet Flesk

In the old days before refrigerator and freezers became common, there were four ways one could get meat and fish and keep for a long time. Smoking, drying, curing and salting. When salting, meat and fish were put in strong salt brine in barrels and when used it had to be rinsed in to remove most of the salty taste.

Parsley Filled Veal “Chicken” / Persillefylte Kalve”kyllinger”

This dish can be made in two different ways, either with thin slices of veal or with ground veal. The recipe calls for no boiled potaoes which must have been considered both daring and chic in Norway back in the early sixties when potatoes still was an absolute dinner staple.
