The other day we made some classic swedish worker and hunter dish called “Pyttipanna”, which is swedish and means something like “small stuff in a pan”.
Usually you buy this simple meal ready made deep frozen in the store, but we wanted to make it a bit more luxury.

What you will need for 4 persons:

  • 800g game meat (you can take the less tender parts, i used moose roll)
  • 150g sausage (any type of sausage works, i used smoked salami)
  • 150g bacon
  • 800g potatoes
  • 2 yellow onions
  • 3-4 table spoons butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Rosemary
  • Marjoram
  • Garlic
  • Coriander
  • Fresh parsley
  • 4-8 eggs
  • Red beets (optional)
  • 30ml cream (optional)

You start by dicing the meat, sausage, bacon and potatoes into 1-2 cm dices.

Cut the onions into smaller pieces in the size of your liking.

For better results you should fry the meat,  bacon and potatoes seperately. The potatoes will be best if they are crispy, otherwise there will be a risk that in the end everything is just a big mess of mashed potatoes. Fry the eggs last and see that the yellow is still a little liquid.

Fry the onions, and then mix everything together.

Spice with Salt, Pepper, Rosemary, Marjoram, Garlic and Coriander after your liking.

If you are more the sauce/creamy type, add the cream now and let it cook for a short while.

Add the parsley and but the ”Pyttipanna” on a plate.

Garnish with red beets and 1-2 fried eggs on the top.
