To many of you who might be reading this - the title does not indicate any kind of mad Dane. Mad, which is pronounced ... oh jesus. OK I cannot begin to phonetically spell how this would be pronounced. Try MEL as in Mel Torme, but swallow the L, which most Danes will tell you really sounds like a soft D. Nothing to do with an English D. It really sounds like an unfinished L that's being swallowed with a boiled potato.
So anyway this evening's meal is a no-nonsense, simple Danish classic: small intestine! Kidding. It's a type of sausage called medister. A thick and lanky schlong of a sausage that wraps itself in any given pot. I boiled that shit for a couple of minutes then finished it in the pan. Talk about exotic! Served with boiled potatoes, salted and drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with paprika. OK the potatoes veer more toward Spain, but I'm not Danish and red is my favorite color. So there! I made a typical brown gravy as well.
The sausage is normally served with plain boiled potatoes and brown gravy. There might very well be a roedkaal pronounced rull- (swallow the Ds to appease your Danish friends and pretend they're Ls) call. Rull-call. Oh and remember to French your R. I don't mean tongue kiss it. I mean in a way you'd try and sound French when saying meRci. Roedkall (I'm using the Latin characters because the Danish letters might not show correctly - rødkål) is a warm red cabbage concoction. We can get into that at a later date.
Whatever you choose to do, medister can be served with a huge variety of side dishes as it's a mild, lightly salted sausage that won't overwhelm it's significant others. Medister is the easy going party of any relationship. I guess you can say that I might be considered medister. Nah. I'm way spicier and more handsome if I do say so myself.
