Burning Love - (Brændende Kærlighed)

Brændende Kærlighed

This fulfilling traditional Danish meal was a very popular amongst poor Danish farmers for the simple reason that it is cheap, quick to make and very satisfying. For non-Danes, it provides a glimpse into a very traditional type of Danish meal. We recommend you try it.

Serves 4

  • 1 pound potatoes
  • 2 onions
  • 2 teaspoons chives or parsley
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Danish butter
  • ½ pound Danish Bacon
  • Peel or scrub potatoes, and boil them for 20-25 minutes in unsalted water or until tender enough to mash
  • Cut bacon in small cubes
  • Fry bacon on frying pan, and place on platter with paper towel when done
  • Chop onions, and fry them in the bacon grease
  • Mash the potatoes and mix with butter and salt
  • Serve the mashed potatoes with a mix of onions and bacon on top
  • Sprinkle the dish with chives or parsley before serving

Tip: To make this Danish dish even better and more authentic, serve with pickled beets on the side.
