Fast food, the Swedish way
Gubbröra is a classic smörgåsbord dish, and something that we associate with old-style Swedish principal town hotels.
To feed two people: use two hard-boiled eggs, one half onion, 80 g of anchovy (a regular tin), a heaped tablespoon of sour cream, dill. Chop and mix. You can also make a hot version of this, but that is something I have yet to try - not as fast, obviously.
Beer would have been nice, but it´s a working day and it makes me sleepy, so we go with Swedish saft, which is a fruit drink made with fruit syrup and water. Not home made, but there is a good selection in stores these days. Our current favourite is Tillman´s ecological elderflower saft, which comes from Grangärde cider factory (I just realized this - I grew up there!).
