Summer and thus picnic season is here. A few days ago me and my husband took a bike ride to the beautiful Haga park where we had a cosy picnic next to the temple of the echo that is quite popular for civil weddings. Coincidentally a couple got married in the temple while we were eating, so we curiously watched the ceremony from our picnic blanket.

Ever since I found the recipe for Jägerwecken, stuffed Austrian baguette, on Johanna’s blog it has been mandatory on all my picnics. Everybody seem to love it and it’s the perfect finger food. Just don’t forget to bring a knife to the picnic so you can slice the baguettes. I’ve changed the recipe but the basic concept is still there: a stuffed baguette with a lot of goodies. I prefer using two smaller baguettes instead of a long one as they are easier to stuff but it doesn’t really matter.
Stuffed picnic baguettes
2 baguettes (about 20 cm long)
2 hard boiled eggs
70 gram gherkins
100 gram smoked Turkey breast, thinly sliced
60 gram Västerbotten cheese
130 gram cream cheese
80 gram smoked processed cheese “Bonno” (looks like a brown sausage)
1 tsp dijon mustard
one handful parsley
Cut off one end of the baguette/s. Hollow out the baguette/s by using kitchen tweezers. Make sure the crust is intact. Chop all ingredients coursly and then combine. Stuff the baguette/s tightly, I use the end of my ice cream scoop for this. Keep the stuffed baguettes in the fridge, wrapped in cling film. When serving just slice the baguettes.
