This is just a good Norwegian "Home Cooking" recipe that I found on a Norwegian blog. There are many variations, so use what you like and have on hand. I love this recipe because it is a great use of leftover fish! Posted for ZWT9

I could just say "ditto" to Annacia's review :). This was a really tasty keeper of a recipe, and while it took a few extra minutes to prepare I would say the time was worth the end result. I used a cup of steamed broccoli in the mix and it was a great fit, though I can see many veggies working here. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 9, Gourmet Goddesses.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 dash white pepper
- 1 dash nutmeg
- 3 eggs, Divided
- 1 1⁄2 cups fish, cooked (cod, halibut, tilapia, or whatever you like)
- 1 cup macaroni, cooked
- 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
- 1⁄2-1 cup chopped vegetables (optional, use what you like)
Directions See How It's Made
- Melt the butter in a saucepan, stir in the flour, and then add the milk, stirring all the while. (If the milk is slightly heated it’s easier to get this lump-free!) Bring it to a boil and let it simmer for a couple of minutes, then add the spices. Then pull off of the heat and let the sauce/base cool for a bit.
- Stir in egg yolks, cooked fish, cooked macaroni, and any veggies that you want to add (chopped leeks, grated carrots, or peas would be good!)
- Beat the egg whites until they’re stiff, then carefully fold this into the fish mixture. Put it in a well-greased casserole dish and sprinkle bread crumbs over the top.
- Bake at 375 F for 40-50 minutes. When done, the casserole should be firm all the way through.
