Savory Sight: Smørbrød


In case you haven't noticed, I am fanatical about sandwiches, which is why I thought I'd died and gone to heaven when I came across the pictures that FinnLover posted in Twinkle's Kitchen Goddess group of smørbrød: Scandinavian open-faced sandwiches.

Norwegian for "butter bread," these smørbrød sandwiches are everywhere in her current home of Bergen, Norway. "People eat them for breakfast, lunch, and at night before going to bed," she says. "I normally like to keep mine really simple and the ingredients to a minimum." This combination of red bell pepper and Snøfrisk, a spreadable goat cheese, is simply spectacular.

Don't forget to share any enticing food photos of your own in the Savory Sights group. For more mouth-watering smørbrød, read more.

The perfect weekend breakfast: egg salad and smoked salmon.


An unusual mixture of hot smoked salmon and green apple. "It may sound weird, but this one is so delicious," she reassures us.
