Top ten really swedish meals

We all know that Swedes love their meatballs and potatoes, but what else do they make that I have come to love?

1. Kassler Grätang.  A ham and rice casserole. 


2. Lax o Potatis.  Haha, this is what happens when you serve this dish. Fresh salmon baked with some lemon  slices, boiled potatoes, and hollandaise sauce.


3.  Pyttipanna.  diced pork, potatoes, and onions fried up, topped with an egg and red beets. The "quick" dinner.



4. Risgrynsgröt.Rice pudding is a dish made from rice mixed with water or milk and sometimes other ingredients such as cinnamon and raisins. Put some fruit salad next to it and it makes a nice evening meal.  

5. Flygande Jakob.  Flying Jacob is a Swedish casserole that consists of chicken, whipped cream, chili sauce, bananas, roasted peanuts and bacon....served with rice. Surprisingly good?


6.  Swedish pancakes.  Think crepes here, and yes, this is considered a meal.


7. Rotmos med fläsk.  Either you like it or you dont.  Mashed potatoes with carrots, onions, rutabega all mashed in, served with some kind of pork on the side.  You can even buy rotmos in a tube. Ha!


8. Smörgåstårta.  Sandwich cake.  Only for special occasions. I even made a blog about this one. http://andthentheywerethree.blogspot.se/2010/12/how-to-make-smorgastarta-savoury.html (but i need to improve my skills here).


9. räkmacka. Who doesnt love a dump of cold shrimp with salad on an open sandwich?


10. and ending with the most classic Swedish...värma smörgåsar med kantarell.  Warm open faced sandwiches including chanterelles.


Things i havent really learned to love:
Fiskbullar (fishballs that are kind of like sticky wet dumplings that come in a can with sauce.)
Ärtsoppa
Bruna bönor
Thursday is soup day?
