Denmark is the favorite holiday country of many Norwegians. According to Statistics Norway, more than 830,000 Norwegians went on holiday to Denmark in the summer before the pandemic hit.
Among the temptations we find the many beaches and family parks in Jutland, the continental experiences in Copenhagen – and not least the sumptuous Danish breakfasts with open sandwiches, mouth-watering pastries and the Danish specialty brunsviger.
Yes, because you knew that the breakfast of the Danes is what is called lunch or breakfast?
But while there are still infection restrictions hampering this year’s Danish holiday, there is a good alternative: let the food bring the Danish holiday feeling back to your home in Norway!
– Invite friends home for a real Danish breakfast, with Danish flags on the table and Kim Larsen in the speaker. Then you can import the Danish and nice holiday home to Norway says Torunn Nordbø, department head of the Bread and Cereals Information Office, in a press release.
Here are the recipes that bring a taste of Denmark to Norway:
