Øllebrød is a traditional Danish dish - a type of porridge made of rugbrød scraps and beer, typically hvidtøl. A thrifty dish, it makes it possible to use the rest of the bread scraps so that nothing is wasted. The idea originated from monastic living, when monks would dip their bread into hot beer.[citation needed]

Nowadays commercially available instant powder mixes for making Øllebrød are available.

Øllebrød is usually served with plain milk, but sometimes whipped cream is used instead. Traditional recipes sometimes flavour the porridge with either lemon or orange.
