Pytt i Panna - Swedish home cooking made easy

6 commentsBy Michaela Lühr

I brought you a recipe for Pytt i Panna, the Swedish after-work pan! If you're wondering what that is again, I'll tell you at this point that our fried potatoes or the farmer's breakfast are very similar to this Swedish classic. However, this recipe is not about fried potatoes! Pytt i Panna means something like "little things in the pan". Swedish recipes or dishes sometimes have cute names, right?

In Sweden, the hard-working housewife dices the ingredients very small, fries them all individually and only mixes them at the very end. This includes one raw egg yolk per serving! If you serve the dish in the traditional way, you serve the egg in half an eggshell.

Usually the Swedes use whatever was left over from the last few days for this dish. I love the sumptuous luxury version with fresh ingredients and meat! Would you like to cook the recipe with leftovers or modify it? Then I have some tips for you under the recipe!

Pytt i Panna - recipe

You will find even more Swedish recipes at heart. But you should also take a look at home-style cooking recipes such as Köttbullar or the Viking pot!

Ingredients for the Pytt i Panna

  • 500 g waxy potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons clarified butter
  • 500 g beef
  • 250 g smoked bacon
  • 300 g onions
  • 1 pinch of love
  • salt and pepper
  • parsley
  • 4 eggs

The preparation

  1. First wash and peel the potatoes and cut them into cubes 0.5 centimeters. Then heat the clarified butter in the pan and pour the raw potatoes into the pan. Now is the time to be patient! Do not stir too much while the potato cubes are browning well in the pan.
  2. In the meantime, the other ingredients are being prepared! Also cut the beef and smoked bacon into fine cubes and then set aside separately from each other. Then peel and finely chop the onion.
  3. When the potatoes are browned, they are removed from the pan. If necessary, add more fat to the pan and fry the other ingredients one after the other until golden brown.
  4. Only at the very end are all the ingredients put back into the pan again. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Now all you have to do is separate the eggs, distribute the Pytt i Panna on the plates and serve the yolks in half an egg shell. The dish is decorated with chopped parsley.

Tips for the Pytt i Panna

  • Leftover potatoes from the previous day can be used wonderfully for this dish.
  • It doesn't matter whether you use jacket potatoes, boiled potatoes or raw potatoes for this dish!
  • Leftover roasts or meat sausages taste fantastic in Pytt i Panna.
  • Instead of the raw egg yolk, you can also add a fried egg.
  • Pytt i Panna also tastes very good with smoked meat such as Kassler.
  • In many parts of Sweden, diced beetroot is added to the dish.

Enjoy this Pytt i Panna for you. It takes a bit of chopping work, but it tastes twice as good! Raw egg replaces the sauce in this dish. But if you really want to, you can of course also have a little ketchup with it. For me, the dish is the very best as it is.

All the best
