Funky Food Friday: Heirloom Tomato and Basil Tunnbröd

Happy Friday, everyone!

I have a super easy Swedish-Italian fusion dish to share with you. And no, this time there are no rancid meatballs from IKEA involved. ;)

Yesterday, as I was scavenging our kitchen for something edible around lunchtime, I found the slowly softening stash of heirloom tomatoes from the farmer’s market and decided I had to use some of them up.

I was thinking of a quick salad, but I was hungry and my son was napping so I had the chance to actually make something more substantial to fill me up for a while. Luckily I found one last piece of Swedish flatbread in the freezer.

Tunnbröd is a special, unleavend and simple wheat bread from the polar region. We actually made this ourselves a while ago, and I’m unsure where the recipe came from. I just remember that we baked them in a frying pan on the stove top.

One of my favourite quick, but not-so-healthy dishes with Tunnbröd is Tunnbrödsrulle, but given the fact that I had to use up a bunch of tomatoes, I decided to make a more pizza-like dish out of it though. :)


  • flat bread
  • mayonnaise
  • cave-aged Gruyere cheese
  • heirloom tomatoes
  • olive oil for drizzling
  • basil

Begin with a very thin layer of mayonnaise, followed by a generous layer of Gruyere cheese, then top with the rest of the ingredients an bake at 375 for 8 minutes. Voila!


Lunch done in a jiffy!
