Swedish Pytt I Panna
The Swedish name for it means “small pieces in a pan”, and that is literally what this dish is. Small pieces of potato, onion, and sausage are all fried together in one pan, topped with a fried egg, and served with a side of pickles and beetroot.
This dish is easy and quick to prepare. It is also known as a leftover dish, which is probably why it is so popular with families with kids: you can quickly throw together a tasty meal with the leftovers from yesterday’s dinner.
