“This is from the cookbook _Best of Scandinavian Cooking_ by Shirley Sarvis and Barbara Scott O'Neill. The original recipe calls for Danish Danbo cheese, but if you can't find that the authors recommend cheddar, jack, or gouda. I will probably lighten this up some when I make it, but I for now I will post as written. Of course one could easily make this vegetarian by using veg stock instead of chicken broth! Posted for ZWT 6--Scandinavia.”
