“This was posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006. Potatoes are one of the staples of Scandinavian cooking, combining the with Norwegian Jarlsberg cheese makes this a wonderful side dish or if you serve it with a side salad it could even serve as a main. If you can't find Jarlsberg you can use gouda, cheddar or whatever your favourite cheese is instead.”
