Burnt Snout / Brennsnute

A recipe for a rarely made Norwegian traditional dish
found on
spar.no
203_brennsnute_post

Nice traditional food is often the best a Norwegian can have. Some dishes are more popular than others. This dish is probably for many quite unknown but no less sturdy, Norwegian fare for that reason. The name  Brennsnute (burnt snout) comes from the fact that the dish should be served so hot that you might burn your snout on it 😉

I guess sweet and sour dishes, whether they are based on Western or Eastern cooking traditions can be somewhat of an acquired taste. I’ve acquired that taste ages ago. My mother made a wicked sweet and sour pork in the Scandinavian tradition and it was one of my favourites from early age – Ted

Swedish Steamer Steak / Ångbåtsbiff

A classic Swedish lunch recipe found on recept.nu170_steam boat steak_post

A variation on the classic Swedish steak with onions. To cook it the classic manner you need a steam boat and a hot plate from the boiler. But a well used cast iron frying pan is an adequate compensation. Serve with freshly boiled potatoes, sweet peas and pickled gherkins.

creme lady astor_page

Håkan Håkanson_imgHåkan Håkansson writes: “Crème Lady Astor is an exclusive variant of green pea purée. The soup was named a memorable evening at the Swedish Embassy in London in 1943. The dish is named after viscountess Nanny Witcher Astor who during the war was the first female member of the English House of Commons. Lady Astor was very good friends with Sweden’s Minister in London, Björn Prytz, and at a dinner at the Swedish Embassy, she became so fond of this soup that she wanted the recipe. Then Minister Prytz said that we might as well call the soup Lady Astor”

Pea soup is real traditional food that deserves to be made a lot more often. In this recipe, there are extra root vegetables added to make the soup smooth and full of flavour. Make a lot and freeze for later.

Wallenbergare – Swedish Luxury Patties / Svenske Luxus Karbonader

A recipe from rimi.no – Photo from gubbröra.taffel

993_Wallenbergare_post
traditional badge3Wallenbergare is a luxury patty which consists of finely ground veal. Other ingredients include: cream, egg yolks, salt, pepper and fresh breadcrumbs. Wallenbergaren should be fried very lightly and be light inside and only light brown on the surface. Wallenbergare is often served with boiled potatoes or mashed potatoes, cranberry jam and green peas.

The dish is named after magistrate Marcus Wallenberg, whose father-in-law was a doctor and cookbook author Charles Emil Hagdahl.

I love the way the Swedes have a habit of giving names to dishes and other things. Wallenbergare sounds so much better than just calling them veal patties – Ted

Meatballs In Brown Sauce With Creamed Cabbage Or Green Pea Puree / Kjøttkaker I Brun Saus Med Stuakål Eller Ertestuing

A traditional Norwegian recipe from the popular food site MatPrat
Image from lokalhistoriewiki.no

874_kjøttkaker2traditional badge2
I know I mentioned that «Mutton In Cabbage» was elected Norway’s national dish 40 years ago in a post about that dish, and It was actually re-elected quite recently. On the other hand,  I think very many Norwegian think about meatballs in brown sauce with either creamed cabbage or green pea puree as the most Norwegian dish of all. And few would dream of eating it without a nice dash of cranberry jam or fresh cranberries stirred with sugar like you see on the picture above.
