A nice change from Spanish coffee; although, if you prefer that, just replace the cherry liqueur with Tia Maria or Kahlua. It's also nice with Grand Marnier instead of the cherry liqueur, but then you'd have to rename it!
A traditional item on the Norwegian smorgasbord-type meal we always have on the 25th of December, which here, is called "First Day of Christmas", because the really big day here is Christmas Eve. Of course, you may prepare this wonderful (if you like herring) spread anytime at all!
In England, swedish meatballs are very available and cheap. They are very good with the following cream sauce and boiled potatoes. My son, who has to be one of the faddiest people on the planet, found this delicious. This is from the cookbook 'Ikea's Real Swedish Food Book'.
There are so many variations and recipes for Pickled herring, salted herring etc. This recipe has been an old standby for my Mum and I like it. However I usually buy the tinned wine cured whole filets for special occasions they are super. Serve the herrings with fresh chopped onions and perhaps some capers
The little Norwegian store here makes these by the dozens. They either dunk them in their coffee or butter them on the bottom to eat them. Yum! (Yield depends on how thick and or big you make them, so judge accordingly).
These sweet crepe-like pancakes get rolled up into mini jelly roll shapes and are a real hit with children. I serve these often to overnight guests - especially during holiday gatherings. You may use whatever jelly you prefer, we like raspberry or blackberry with seeds the best. The cook time is an approximation of how long I personally take to cook all of the batter - it only takes a few minutes for each crepe.
This is my Grandmother's recipe she took to the states with her from southern Norway. It is very simple and a definite crowd pleaser. I recommend a cast iron tortilla or crepe pan heated until a drop of water dances on the surface.
Found on the Net in response to a request. This information came with the recipe: "Aebleskiver - a Danish dessert, like doughnut holes, but sweeter & much better traditionally served with glogg during the Advent. Cooked in a cast iron pan that resembles an egg poacher. Serve hot with syrup, jam or powdered sugar."
This salad is made in Finland in two ways: either with herring (rosolli) or without (punajuurisalaatti). It's my favorite beet salad, and although I've never made it including the herring I'm sure it would be tasty that way, too! Based on a recipe from "The Finnish Cookbook" by Beatrice A. Ojakangas. First prepared in our household by my husband Mike. :)
This is a Norwegian recipe I cut out from a Norwegian magazine, years ago. It is very easy to prepare, and has a unique and wonderful taste, blending curry and bananas. You can use any size grilled chickens, thus the 4-6 servings.
