An old dinner recipe from a special issue of “Husmorens Kokebok” (The Housewife’s Cook Book) published in 1963
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.

Cakes fried in irons were among the first cakes made in Norway, besides cakes fried on flatt stones and griddles. The waffle irons had long handles to make the user able to keep the iron in the fire.
This recipe is from the book “From oldemor’s kitchen” (From Great Grandma’s Kitchen), published by Østfold Associated Country Women in 1998.

Beef and lamb liver is well suited for this dish. Lamb liver may have a slightly drier texture than beef’s, but many people still like lamb liver the best. Do not fry the liver slices for too long. They should be pink and soft in the center. If you’re fond of onions you can cut an onion in slices and fry them in butter or margarine before placing them on top of the liver slices.

The childhood dream in the old days for many Norwegian children was to eat bacon pancakes as often as they wanted, and as many as possible. But pancakes takes time to cook, and there were usually several people round the table, so the cakes had often dispensed equally between the them.
