Well, I posted the Italian version, so being a Minnesotan who transplanted to Indiana, I'd better post the Swedish recipe as well. Obviously this is not a heart-healthy recipe, so it's not one I make too often. But it is a wonderfully traditional comfort food! I'll get a picture of this up as soon as I make these again!
