In Norway, it’s always waffle-time. In fact, we love waffles so much that we even serve them in the shape of a heart. Try it as a sweet treat or a cutting-edge Michelin dish.

The variations in toppings are almost endless. If you do a waffle tour (because why not?) of Norway, you are likely to be served waffles with egg and caviar or cloudberries in Northern Norway, jam and brown cheese in Telemark, and ice cream in Southern Norway. Also, make sure not to miss the city of Moss’ signature dish: hotdog in waffle.

A symbol of kos and love

Waffles are the quintessence of “kos”, which is Norwegian for “having a good time”. For Norwegians abroad, they are a symbol of homesickness and a heartening treat, according to the Norwegian seamen’s church Sjømannskirken. For more than 150 years, the heart-shaped waffle has served as a unique trademark for the church, which sells no less than 30,000 mouthwatering waffles every year. Each church has its own special recipe, and you can find them all on Sjømannskirkens official website (Norwegian only).

Norwegian Joar Mortveit from Skjold on the other hand, fed hundreds of people with just one mighty waffle on a glorious day in 2011. The feat secured him the Guinness World Record for the largest waffle in the world.
