Flatbrød (literally "flat-bread") is a traditional Norwegian unleavened bread which is currently usually eaten with fish, salted meats and soups. Originally it was the staple food of Norwegian shepherds, peasants, and Vikings.
It is generally eaten in all meals. The thinner the bread is, the better it is. It is rolled and then cooked on a large griddle. The tradition of making flat bread has been passed down generation after generation by housewives. However, each person has their own recipe for preparing it. Also, the dry climate in Norway allows it to be stored for a long period of time.
