We also started every morning with cheese sandwiches.

It was easy on our trips to Copenhagen bakeries Copenhagen bakeries like Hart, Collective, Juno and Lille to eat lots of kanelsnagels, cardamom buns and spandauers. However, ordering a whole loaf of bread was not on our agenda. Luckily, these bakeries bake lots of bread rolls – a handy option for those like us who can’t eat a loaf of bread all at once.

The morning roll is a vehicle of fine flavor – one where funky French Alpine cheese and creamy butter provide a slightly sweet yet funky yin to the yang of the wonderfully crispy, crispy roll.

Of course, while our dinner at the famous intergalactic noma won us over with its extraordinary culinary prowess, the simple Danish breakfast sandwich stands out in our minds when we think of delicious food in Denmark.

After logging on to the simple breakfast and declaring it “My new favorite thing!” Daryl has committed to recreating it in our kitchen at home. Once he did, we both exclaimed “yippee” and quickly wolfed him down.

Seriously, we’re going to be eating morning danish rolls for a long time now that they’re in our lives. We anticipate that you will too. How could you not?

Gorgeous artisan sourdough bread sets the stage for excellent aged alpine cheeses (in this case, Comté de France) and butter. Although these three ingredients are enough on their own, the morning bun makes them even better.

Pro Tip: The morning Danish roll goes well with coffee and orange juice.
