Cheese Buns / Osteboller

A delicious cheesy bun recipe found on godt.no
Cheese Buns / Osteboller

These cheese buns are made with three types of cheese: they are filled with a nice piece of mozzarella and then sprinkled with grated cheddar and parmesan. The great flavor also comes from the fact that the dough for the cheese buns contains both butter, olive oil, salt and garlic powder. In addition, the buns should be brushed with a mixture of melted butter, garlic powder and fresh oregano after baking.

Mmm-m-m, as you see, these buns are flavourful stuff, the taste is amazing! Serve the cheese buns while they are still hot and fresh, with the cheese inside still soft and delicious.

Traditional Norwegian Redcurrant Jelly / Tradisjonell Ripsgelé

A quick and simple jelly recipe found on dinmat.noTraditional Norwegian Redcurrant Jelly / Tradisjonell Ripsgelé

Conserving redcurrant has been known from the 17th century and in the 18th century the redcurrant bushes were widely spread in Norway. In Norwegian gardens there are very many bushes still, but there is little commercial production. Redcurrant contains pectin which makes it very suitable for jelly and jam. One portion of this recipe makes one jar of finished jelly.

We had both redcurrant, blackcurrant and gooseberry bushes in the garden where I grew up so this is stuff I grew up on – Ted
