Burning love – Brændene kærlighed (35p per portion)

No, this is not me declaring my love to my lovely husband. Instead this is a traditional danish meal! Called Burning Love in Danish, or Brændene kærlighed..

During my pregnancy I have been craving a lot of Danish dishes. Unfortunately, I haven’t really been able to cook them. This is the one I especially have been craving.

The fact that I struggled cooking it and eating it, when I tried making it a few months ago, is a totally separate issue.

It went down really well with the husband and ok with “Baby” Blip!!


If you are looking for a healthy meal, then this is definitely not it. But cheap, oh yes!!!

It’s also quickly made!

Make mashed potatoes enough for 4 – 50p
