French Toast / Poor Knights

"Poor knights" (Fattiga riddare) is what we call these fried egg toasts in Sweden.

  • 4-5 slices of toast bread
  • 600 ml milk
  • 100 ml plain flour
  • 2 egg
  • 2 tbsp castor sugar
  • 0,5 tsp ground cinnamon
Whisk milk, flour, egg, sugar and cinnamon together in a wide bowl. Cut each bread slice diagonally in two halves, put half of them in the liquid and soak for a couple of minutes.

Heat a frying pan on medium heat with some butter and fry the toasts until golden brown on each side.

Sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar on top on each slice. Serve with strawberry jam.

Hot Carrot Soup

A simple but still very tasty easy-to-cook soup. Serve with some newly grated cheese that each person can sprinkle over their bowl of soup, and bread.

  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1 finely chopped garlic clove
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tsp paprika powder
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 liter of vegetable broth
  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes
  • 250 g coarse grated carrots
  • 100 ml red lentils
  • 0,5 tsp sambal oelek
  • 200 ml double cream
  • salt, pepper
Heat butter in a pan (larger than 2 liters) in just over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, thyme and paprika and cook while stirring for a few minutes.
Pour in the broth, crushed tomatoes, carrots, lentils and sambal oelek. Stir around, put on a lid, lower the heat slightly and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir a few times because the lenses like sticking to the bottom. Just before the soup is served you pour in the cream and season with salt and pepper.
