    Engrossed's Note:

    I found this on another website researching Swedish recipes. I love to make it and not tell people it has anchovies in it until after they rave about how good it is. The anchovies melt into it to make a sauce. It has such a yummy flavor! Here is a quote from the recipe: "Jansson's Temptation is a classic Swedish dish traditionally served before guests leave to ensure that during their cold journey home they have something warm inside them."

      I love this recipe. My sister in law's mother makes this dish two ways every Christmas Eve one with anchovies and one with julienned ham. Both are delicious.

      This is holiday food in our family! It's worth it to find Swedish anchovies. Their taste and texture are so different from the oil packed ones. I find them at Nordic House in Oakland, CA. They are online: http://www.nordichouse.com/

      The flavor is excellent, but we felt that this was too assertive a dish to function as a side, and not substantial enough to stand alone. I do think I would like to make this in a pastry case and serve it as a tort or quiche-like entree.
