Swedish Meatball Sandwich  Swedish FlagEverytime we travel to Sweden I experience a new food that quickly becomes one of my new favorites and this is certainly one of them. What makes this open face sandwich so special is the red beet salad that compliments the meatballs. The type of bread used is very important and I found that the bakery at our Wal-Mart Supercenter  makes some exceptionally good fresh baked bread and rolls. I must tell you that I was shocked! 

Wal-Mart’s 9 grain loaf is excellent to use for this sandwich – please do not use commercial sliced white bread – at the very least you can use rye or limpa bread if you can’t find Wal-Mart’s 9 grain bread.
Speaking of bread… if you travel to any of the European countries you will find that fresh baked bread is the normal and with a variety that is second to none. Then there’s the fabulous desserts and pastries… but that will be discussed in a future post.
