MY FAVORITE SWEDISH PAIR

I lived two years in Sweden and I can honestly say that except for one savory and one sweet dish, Swedish cuisine didn't make a great impact on me.
Swedish scalloped potatoes and Bullar are those two dishes, one savory and one sweet.
Sweetness of the onions, creaminess of the cream, and starchiness of the potatoes is a perfect flavor combination for me, that is why I felt in love with Swedish scalloped potatoes at the first sight of the dish. Although I regularly bake bullar as everybody in our family enjoys them, I didn't bake the scalloped potatoes in a long long time as the male part of my family is not so fond of cream or milk joining in to a savory dishes.
