Jansson’s Temptation ………. (Jansson’s frestelse)



A dear friend of mine asked me what dish would be good to take to a party ……….. I suggested ‘Janssons Temptation’, a traditional Swedish dish which I usually make for our christmas at swedish interior design, (hence the God Jul sign next to the picture ….. God Jul means Happy Christmas) …… but its also great for parties with a unique delicious taste and easy to make …..Β 

you will need …. 6 large potatoes, 3 large onions, 3 tbsp butter, 16 anchovy fillets, 400 g fresh cream, pepper and a bunch of fresh dill …….. turn oven to 180 f

Peel and slice potatoes…. slice onions and saute in two thirds of butter until golden ….use rest of butter to grease dish ….. place potato slices on one layer, second layer fried onions, next layer anchovies and repeat … always finishing dish with layer of potatoes … fold chopped dill into cream, add pepper and pour over dish ……. don’t worry if cream mixture spills a little over the top of dish ….. just place the dish on foil in the oven …..place in oven for 50 mins ….. mmmmm if it needs a little longer thats fine ……just make sure itsΒ nice and crispy …

Best to make on day of party ………
