Smorrebrod - egg salad and "saltimbocca"

Smørrebrød – egg salad and “saltimbocca”

We Danes love our smørrebrød, there are many classics (not to be messed with) but essentially they are open faced sandwich’s with whatever you like. These use some of the leftovers from our christmas dinners..

Egg Salad

  • Home made mayo
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Sour cream
  • Curry powder
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Lemon juice
  • Chervil

Mix the mayo, sour cream, curry powder and lemon juice, chop the eggs and combine. Season with salt & pepper and lemon juice. Chop the chervil and add.


  • Leftover roast pork
  • Leftover dried parma ham
  • Sage

Cut a nice slice form the roast pork, heat on a pan. Fry a couple of sage leaves in some oil. Spread a thin layer of mustard on the pork and layer everything together.



Hungover, need food! (Pariserbøf)

It’s the day after and maybe you had just one too many espresso martini’s… I know i did 🙂

What better way to get your head back on track then with a nice snack. This is one Danish lunch classic that just works!

Beef patty

  • Ground beef
  • Mustard
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Slice of Toast
  • Butter


  • Onion ( i prefer shallots)
  • Pickled beetroot
  • Capers
  • Horseradish
  • Egg yoke (pasteurized)

Mix the ground beef with the mustard, workcestershire souce and a god helping of salt & pepper.

Create a patty the size of your piece of toast. Butter the toast on both sides and push the patty onto the bread.

Fry the patty, beef side down. Turn and fry beef side up until the toast is crisp.

Chop the toppings and garnish.. finally pour over the egg yoke
