The Norwegian Constitution day is celebrated all over the world. It is tradition to gather around a breakfast table filled with goodness on this big day, and we have put together our favorites for the traditional 17th of May breakfast. Enjoy!

What you need:

  • Smoked salmon
  • Eggs
  • Cured ham
  • Good cheese
  • Strawberries
  • Potato salad
  • Bread
  • Chocolate
  • Cake
  • Champagne
  • Norwegian flags
  • Happy people!


The great thing about this meal is that you can prepare almost everything the day before, so you do not have to get up extremely early to make all the food. Everything is spread out on your buffet table, and people can help themselves. Chocolate, sweets and champagne are all permitted and encouraged during a 17th of May celebration. This meal can last for hours with friends and family. Photo credit:
