Ok. Research phase has begun. Is (what appears to me to be) German influence in some food just part of the overall Baltic food, or is this something specifically introduced to Sweden through immigration? I suppose I could answer much of this with google and wikipedia but since the host is from Sweden I think it's cool to make this part of the challenge discussion!

Oh dear... I forgot two things: made Swedish meatballs with steamed potato for supper last night and forgot to take a picture, and completely forgot the lingonberry to go with them.  Dang... maybe next time.

New to this site. How does the challenge work?
Make a dish that is consistent with the theme. Post a pic with description. If selected as winner you'd be the one to chose the theme next month (and the winner too).

I'm not that well read on German food, except for sausages and Bratwursts and that's not very typical Swedish I'd say. :p I know my Swedish food pretty much ^^

I can see a correlation between German food and Swedish food. When my parents lived in the US my mother went to an adult learning center to learn English. She became good friends with a woman from Sweden and we would go to each other's homes for dinner. This was my first contact wth Swedish food. I was a kid and I would not touch the fish back then but I'd be all over it now. I just remember thinking "wow, there is sauce on everything!"

This is my version of a classic Swedish dish...

Swedish Fish!

Served soaked in olive oil, on a bed of parsley with flower petals, drops of a fine balsamic and olive oil drops and seasoned to perfection!

(Someone had to do it. Right?)

So this is definitely not my challenge lol. 

Basically i have almost no idea what is swedish food. 

BUT, i do know swedish waffles. 

But also it appears I gave away my waffle pan and didnt realize it until today. 

Regardless though i guess my dish isn´t traditional, but its defintely inspired by swedish food, especially waffles. And it was fun making this dish and getting all creative lol. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif

Savoury waffles with sunny side up egg, tomatoes, bacon, and sausage (breakfast for dinner). 


The waffle batter was seasoned with salt, pepper, safron, herbs, and some cumin. I added just a hint of sugar too.
