This traditional Swedish comfort food, called Pyttipanna (which I’m pretty sure translates as ‘pieces in the pan’ and is pronounced like pity panna), may have an exotic sounding name, but as you’ll see it’s all ingredients that are well known and loved!
Great on a cold day, it’s easy to make for dinner or a hearty breakfast!
Let’s see how it’s done
- 2lbs diced potatoes
- 1 cup diced onions
- 3-4 slices of bacon, chopped
- 3-4 sausages (we used bratwurst) chopped
- 2-4 eggs (one per serving)
Melt some butter in a large skillet on medium heat
Add the potatoes
Salt and pepper to taste
Ready to go!
On a low-medium heat, stir until well mixed and then cover. This will allow the potatoes to cook faster
In a separate frying pan, add the bacon
and the sausage
Get the meat cooking!
Check on the potatoes, make sure they aren’t sticking to the bottom of the pan. If they are, you can add a little vegetable oil. Potatoes are done when they’re soft (but not mushy)
Take the meat off the heat and add it to the potatoes
Once mixed, spoon individual servings into bowls
Almost done, but one more step!
Go get those eggs!
In the skillet you cooked the meat, fry up one egg for each bowl (sunny side up is best!)
You want the eggs to still have a runny yolk
Place an egg on each serving
Give each person a bowl with an egg
Let them mix it all together
I’m just gonna eat this now … you look at some more pictures!
They you have it, Pyttipanna or Swedish Hash
Great for dinner or a hearty breakfast!
