Kroppkakor, as the dish is called is a Swedish dish, hailing from the southern regions of the country. They are namely potato dumplings with a filling of onion and pork or bacon, then served with lingonberry preserves and sour cream. Seriously, I am drooling just thinking about it.
It was the sort of dessert you would eat in a log cabin in a plaid flannel shirt after spending all winter growing a beard that might rival your chest hairs. The sort of dessert you would want after wrestling bears and spearing fish through a tiny hole in the ice.
This was very nearly a survive it moment. I did so many things wrong with this recipe that I am amazed that I didn’t end up tossing a pound of bacon in the trash. My first mistake was that I had spread myself too thin in the kitchen that day and was running around like a chicken with its head cut off.
Yet another super simple recipe, and guess what? THERE’S BACON!!! This recipe is an excellent source of protein, and can be made healthier by using reduced fat cheese, corn instead of flour tortillas, and bacon that hasn’t been cured. Super simple, I usually make this if I have a friend stopping by for lunch. Quick, easy, and delicious!
When we get home and begin unpacking our bags my dear husband holds up the package and asks, “do you realize you got maple syrup bacon?”
What? NO!!!!!!! Someone must have tossed the maple crap on top of the pile of my beloved hardwood smoked thick cut.
