So, without further ado, please have a seat and check out the menu!
- Muse of Me-Ander has some kitchen advice, for planning, renovations, etc. before you start cooking...
[Editor's note: You are welcome to add a suggestion for this section of the menu. Please leave a comment.]
- Sausage and Cabbage by Annamaria Kovacs of Bunny? Anna says: "Deceptively simple but very yummy." [Editor's note: How about a glass of Unicum?]
- Spanish Tortilla With Spinach by Cathy of Chief Family Officer. Cathy says: "You can turn this into a Danish tortilla by using Edam cheese instead!"
- Sissy Willis of Sisu has another recipe for sandwich ("smørrebrød" in Danish) in her post, The Taste of Freedom.
Frikadeller, rolls off your tongue, just like a swear word.[Editor's comment: Mmm, How abut DANISH BACON...]
Forty years ago, I helped my mother make, it seemed like hundreds, of frikadellers, for my after the wedding reception party we had back at the house, and quite a party it was too. If there is one thing us kiwis know how to do, it is party.
We made the frikadellers smaller than you see in the picture, so they could be eaten using toothpics, as I remember there were a couple of different sauces on the side.
They are especially tasty if they are cooked in bacon fat.
- Pork Loin Stuffed with Prunes and Apples ("Morbrad med Svedsker og Aebler" in Danish) by Riannan of In the Headlights. From Riannan's post:
I prewrote this thinking he wanted Danish recipes. When I read the post today, I realized he is asking for Danish pastry...Well, this isn't pastry, and I'm not redoing the post. I figure you'll need a little protein to go with all that sugar so I'm submitting it anyway.[Editor's comment: I am sorry for causing any inconvenience. I should have be more precise in the description. But, as a fun twist, I hereby announce a meme. Please send your DANISH PASTRY (a.k.a "Roses of the Prophet Muhammad" in Iran) recipes, or a photo of a pastry, and I will update the post later on.]
- Danish Baby Back Ribs by The General aka Wiley McCrary of BBQ General. Here is an excerpt from Wiley McCrary's post:
What is the difference between American and Danish baby back ribs? There is one more rib on the Danish ribs....13 instead of 12! The Danish hog is called the "Land Race." Mark went on to say that there are three defining points to the taste of pork ribs. The breed of the hog, what it is fed, and the age it is slaughtered.
- Dutch Baby w/Fuji Apple Compote by The Pragmatic Chef™. The chef says: "This would be great with a slice of Havarti cheese!"
- Raspberry Danish Sorbet by Mensa Barbie Welcomes You. Mensa Barbie says: "Sorbet is lovely to separate the flavors and tastes of the many cheeses, finest ham, and sliced rye, that the Danes are famous for."
I have the in on Danish foods, as my husband is half Danish and came from Junction City, Oregon, which has its annual Scandinavian Festival every August. Apparently, that's where all the Minnewegians who took the Oregon Trail moved.
- Coffee in Danish & Danish Coffee by Christine Torres of Morning Coffee & Afternoon Tea. Here is an excerpt from the post:
Ok, so the theme for this week's Carnival of the Recipes is "Danish". But I wasn't sure if that meant "recipes for Danish pastry", or "recipes for Danish foods". I'm easily confused. So, I bagged out of that path altogether.[Editor's comment: I am sorry for the confusion. It must be the Scandinavian language...;)]
How about ending this carnival by drinking a glass of Danish bitter called Gammel Dansk ("Old Danish")?
Or, maybe you prefer a glass of Matilde cocoa milk?
[Hat tip to H.M.]

Thanks for your comments and trackback links! As promised, here is a photo of a Danish, a.k.a "Rose of the Prophet Muhammad". You are welcome to send pictures of pastries, or other sweet stuff. [Editor's comment: How about a "Havarti hottie"? [Via Michelle Malkin.]]
Here is another recipe: Chili Van Horn by Gus Van Horn.
