I like to make my meals pretty even if simple. I like to challenge myself with what is in my refrigerator. This is a creation of leftovers and simple ingredients.
This meal has potatoes, bacon, bread, egg, vegetables and a warm cup of chocolate. Served in my finest ceramic. To make the potatoe rose I sliced potatoes thinly, stirred in olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, thyme. Than laid out bacon strips and lined the bacon with the sliced potatoes, making sure each potato overlapping. Starting at one end, gently rolling up the bacon, creating a potato rose. Then place the rolled potato roses in a greased muffin tin. Bake in the oven about 55-60 minutes at 200 degrees celsius. Don’t burn the rose. Cover with a foil if needed at the end to not burn the edges.
For my sandwiches I had lentil stew left from the cookalong on sunday night. So I made a sandwich with the stew and an egg in the middle, a little strips of cheese and baked in the oven along with the potatoe roses at the end. I made another sandwich with cheese and egg hiding in the middle, also baked in the oven. Just seasoned with salt, pepper, oregano, thyme.
My supper last night with simple ingredients but so inviting. I even had some Ieft to heat for breakfast and lunch the next day and it tasted great even heated in the microwave.
Smørbrød (Sandwiches) is part of my Norwegian Heritage and it can be made for simple or festive occations. Just use what you have and be creative.
