Author Notes: Nistepakke is the Norwegian word for a meal packed along with you. Almost always Norwegians eat their sandwiches as open faced sandwiches called smørrebrød (which means buttered bread). This was one of my ideal lunches all of my growing up years, the one we would pack along on trips to the beach, of hiking and skiing trips, or for school. And still now when I go to visit my family in Norway, this is what I have for lunch. Why mess around when you've found your perfection? ;)fiveandspice

Serves: 1

  • 2 thick slices of good, hearty whole grain bread
  • good salted butter
  • a few thin slices of Jarlesberg (use a cheese plane)
  • 2 slices of thinly sliced salami
  • 1 thin ring of sweet red bell pepper
  • a few thin slices of gjetost (Norwegian brown goat cheese)
  • a spoonful good raspberry jam (optional)
  1. Butter each slice of bread. On one of the slices layer on the pieces of Jarlsberg, salami, and the piece of red pepper. On the other piece spread on the jam (if you are the kind of person who likes jam with their gjetost - I omit this, personally), then top with the slices of gjetost. Wrap each open faced sandwich in a little pieces of sandwich paper/butcher paper and pack into your lunch pack. Eat the salami and cheese sandwich first, and save the gjetost sandwich for your dessert!
