A good breakfast

Goodmorning! On a still summer morning! — view notes in the picture.

About Swedish breakfast

Breakfast usually consists of open sandwiches, possibly crisp bread (knäckebröd).

The sandwich is often buttered, with toppings such as hard cheese or cold cuts. Swedes usually do not have sweets on their breads such as jam (like the French), peanut butter (like the Americans), or chocolate (like the Danes). However, the traditional Swedish bread, sirapslimpa, less fashionable today, is sweetened in itself, baked with syrup.

Yogurt or filmjölk (fermented milk) are also common breakfast foods, usually served in a bowl with cereals such as corn flakes, muesli, or 'knäcke', and sometimes with sugar,

fruit or jam.

A third food that is commonly eaten at breakfast is porridge (gröt), often made of rolled oats, and eaten with milk and fruit or jam, especially the sort made of lingonberries.

Drinks are milk, juice, tea, or coffee. Swedes are among the most avid

coffee drinkers in the world.
