Brændende Kærlighed – Burning Love

To get through the search for a replacement roommate, I’ll be eating this Brændende Kærlighed or better translated to Burning Love to ease my way through finding that person. I get it, people love potatoes and bacon so putting these two together seems like an obvious name, but it’s also not something I ever thought I would find a dish being called, let alone something I would make.

It’s actually happening and some people are surprised, I’m leaving London in two months as excited as a wild horse who’s been penned up for a while and the gate is slowly being opened to let me free again. I know, I’m not making my time here sound very fun, but a post regarding this will come soon enough, I think the one thing I can say is that this is a place that’s known for being tough.

Full disclosure, when I stumbled upon this recipe I had to do a double take. A recipe when translated called Burning Love is not something you see every day nor an exact description of what you would eat. The best historical record I can find is in the link for the recipe itself, this is a very traditional recipe which originated from Rural Denmark.

Continue cooking until crispy and stir to ensure the bacon and onion doesn’t stick to the base of the frying pan.

Drain the potatoes and add the butter and cream. Mash or puree until smooth and well combined.

Serve the potatoes on a plate and top with the crispy bacon on top. Season with salt and pepper and finish with the chives.
