Sweet Smorgas Print E-mail

During our trip to Erickson's Delicatessen, at 5250 N. Clark Street in Chicago, we had a wonderful chat with Ann-Britt Nilsson about the type of food you might serve at a Swedish breakfast.

We had heard about Swedish carmelized goat cheese and Ann-Britt told us that delicious smorgas could also be made with it on Swedish crisp bread. The name brand we used is Kavli.

If you can't find the Swedish flat bread, you can use thin, flat crackers. Here's a list we found of Swedish delicatessens in the US, Germany and Denmark.

{Makes 6 servings}

  • You'll need:

  • 1 package of Swedish crisp bread
  • 1 package Swedish carmelized goat cheese or any other cheese
  • Grapes - washed and cut in half
  • 6 strawberries - washed and cut in slices
  • 1 apple - cut in thin slices and soaked in lemon water
  • Sprigs of parsley
  • A little adult help


  • A cheese knife with a slot or a wire cheese cutter
  • A fancy plate

      1. Smorgas are known for their eye appeal. So most of this recipe is about arranging things in an charming way.
      2. Take a piece of crisp bread and crack it in half. It's a little tricky sometimes, so don't get discouraged. You might ask for a little help because this thin, crispy bread can break into a bunch of pieces instead of just two.
      3. Have your adult helper cut the cheese into very thin slices. Arrange the slice on the crisp bread.
      4. Lay apple or strawberry slices over the cheese. Or arrange a few grapes and an apple slice on the cheese.
      5. Add a tiny spring of parsley for decoration. Our favorite combo was strawberry and cheese with a tiny parsley. Let us know what yours is.
      6. Arrange the smorgas on the plate and take them to your smorgasbord.
