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.

Bacon Pancakes / Fleskepannekaker

A classic Norwegian dinner recipe found in “Gode Gamle Oppskrifter” (Good Old Recipes) published by Gyldendal in 1991
Bacon Pancakes / Fleskepannekaker

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.

One hardly ever hear of people eating bacon pancakes  any more. That’s a pity really, because it is a delicious dish, particularly served with lingonberry jam as suggested in the recipe – Ted
