    smellyvegetarian's Note:

    No, this is not a sandwich from the movie of the same title :). This is from _Best Scandinavian Cooking_ by Shirley Sarvis and Barbara Scott O'Neill, and it just sounds too yummy to pass up. I am posting my interpretation of the recipe; ie with the changes I am likely to make to "health" it up a bit.

      My family enjoyed this meal. I did not cook the pickle or tomato with the potatoes, instead I layered it this way, starting with butter toast, lettuce, shredded potatoes, turkey bacon, tomato, fried egg and pickle slice on top. Made for ZWT9 ~ The Apron String Travelers.

      All the items in this world that taste crazy good! Never been to Sweden, but if this is what they devour as their meals, I'm IN! Perfection on a plate, changed nothing. Used some wonderful fresh toasted bread, and this made such a beautiful presentation. Made for ZWT 6 Zee Zany Zesty Cookz June 2010
