I am counting the days to our xmas vacation to Oslo! I cant wait to see all my friends and for them to meet Pepa. And because I cant wait, I am making some traditional Norwegian Food here in Berlin. One of my favorite dishes besides Fårikål is Flesk & Duppe. Soooo simple and combines some of my favorite things: Bacon, Creamy Sauce & Mash Veggies! It cannot be simpler and better! Normally it is used Kohlrabi but I had potatoes at home...any root vegetable will do the trick.
800 gr. thick Bacon
7 tbsp Butter
1 kg potaoes (or root vegetable)
100 ml cream
3 tsp salt
1⁄2 tsp pepper
3 tbsp Flour
500 ml milk
Boil the potatoes with unsalted water (with skin) until tender. Press with a Potato Masher, add cream and 3 tbsps of butter, and season with salt and pepper
Melt 2 tbsp butter in a saucepan and stir in the flour. Add with half of the milk and stir well. Add the remaining milk and stir until you have a smooth sauce. Let simmer for about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally. Make sure sauce does not get burned. Season with salt, pepper and possibly a little nutmeg.@
Fry the slices a few minutes on each side in a hot frying pan with the rest of the butter. Add the fried slices over on a plate with paper towels so the fat drains off.
Whisk the rest of the fat from the pan into the white sauce. Serve and sprinkle with the chopped parsley for garnish.
