Gomme ([ˈgumːə]) is a traditional Norwegian dish usually served as a spread or a dessert.[1]

Gomme is commonly a form of sweet cheese made of long-boiled milk and having a yellow or brown colour. It is can be used as a cheese spread on slices of bread, lefse or waffles. There are several regional and local variants. There also exists a porridge-like variant made of boiled milk with oat grain or rice. It is can be served as a dessert with vanilla, cardamom, raisins and cinnamon as added ingredients in most variants. The consistency can vary from soft to thick.[2][3]
