Absolutely would make again and if you asked me what time is dinner? It's when I see you come through the door.

And there is me thinking that Vikings just raped and pillaged, when in fact they were cooking up a storm with this amazing dish! Sign me up to the Viking Merchant Sailor's dating agency, they can cook for me any day of the week! Great and such a wonderful recipe for leftovers, sort of like British Bubble and Squeak with horns! I used left over cooked DANISH ham and we enjoyed this for a late brunch with salad and an egg each. Made for the Scandi games in KK's forum, a veritable Viking victory thanks Bergy!

As always, Bergy, an extremely delicious dish! One of my family's favorites! I had this for b'fast with the egg on top, and again the next day with some fruit! It's a standard at my house! Thnx for posting. Made for KcK's Forum The Scandinavia Kitchen!

Now I know how the Vikings managed to row all the way to England - "Biksemad"! Seriously this was a great way to use the leftovers from a roast of beef and I served it complete with free range eggs on top. Delicious. Thanks Bergy.

I make this all the time! I didn't know it was Danish! We love it! Sometimes the simple things really are the best! Sometimes if we have other leftover cooked veg, I chop that up and add it as well. I often use Worcestershire Sauce for seasoning and some summer savory as well. Does that make it a different recipe, I don't know, but it sure is some good!

I love this stuff! It's also very common in Sweden and Norway where it's called "pytt i panna" which is literally "put in the pan". My "leftover" meat was a couple of slices of bacon and one, very lonely, sausage. You definitely need to use cooked potato here - it takes ages for the potato to soften through frying. Untimately, this is just the Scandinavian version of bubble and squeak!

Biksemad is the perfect way to use leftover pork roast. In Denmark this would be served with pickled beets and/or cucumber salad (agurkesalat). Being Danish, and having just had roast pork for Christmas, guess what we're having for supper tonight. One of husband's favorite meals.

Food fit for a Viking! I had some lovely roasted rosemary potatoes left over from supper last night so I cobbled this together this morning, using turkey pastrami for the "meat". We like our eggs scrambled so after making the potato portion of this meal, I topped it with scrambled eggs. PERFECT for a fast and filling breakfast! Thanks, Bergy! You always have some of the BEST recipes!!! Made for Kittencal's Scandinavian Tag Game 2010.

I make this all the time with leftovers but add diced green peppers or diced green chilies if we have. I make wells in the hash, drop the eggs, cover with a lid so the eggs are basted, called Western Hash. Every country has their version. This is good!.
