ØLLEBRØD – DANISH BEER PORRIDGE

How about a little beer for breakfast? No really, I’m serious.

In search of new and easy recipes for this summer’s adventures aboard s/v R.E.D., I came across this popular Danish breakfast dish. Danes feed it to their kids so would it be that bad for a couple of hearty sailors to indulge in at the start of the day? It was surprisingly good and what my mother would have called a stick-to-your-ribs meal.

I used a local oatmeal stout for the base.

Soaked some black bread in it overnight then simmered to porridge consistency and served up with milk, chopped almonds, raisins and an extra drizzle of maple syrup.
