SOUPS, STEWS & CASSEROLES
Janssons Frestelse (Potato-Anchovy Casserole)
This dish was supposedly a favorite of the 19th century Swedish opera singer Per Adolf “Pelle” Janzon. It is delicious any time of the year, but has a given place on the Swedish julbord (Christmas table). My version is creamy with only a hint of anchovy.
In our family, bread stuffing is the best part of the traditional turkey dinner. My version is a little different and inspired by European cooking.
Sweet Potato Casserole
Sweet and smooth, this casserole is reminiscent of dessert but goes amazingly well with turkey and gravy. Since we can never agree on pecan topping or marshmallows, we use both.
Kalops (Swedish Meat Stew)
Nothing is more comforting on a chilly evening than this traditional Swedish stew. If you are lucky to own an instant pot, it takes only half an hour for fall apart meat and tender vegetables in delicious, creamy sauce.
Yellow Pea Soup (Swedish Style)
This thick, filling soup is traditionally served on Thursdays, followed by thin pancakes/crêpes for dessert. A little mustard on top is a must!
Perfect for weekday dinners, yet delicious enough for unexpected guests and potluck parties. And the leftovers taste even better the next day.
