Rømmegraut (sometimes rømmegrøt in Bokmål and amongst Norwegian Americans) is Norwegian porridge made with sour cream, whole milk, wheat flour, butter, and salt.[1]

Rømme is a Norwegian word meaning a heavy sour cream made from cream or blend of whole milk and cream which is acidified; 'graut' translates as porridge. Traditionally, rømmegraut is a delicacy prepared for special occasions, including holidays. It is considered to be a traditional Norwegian dish. Recipes differ depending on the region of the country.[2]

Rømmegraut is thick and sweet and is generally drizzled in butter and sprinkled with sugar and ground cinnamon. Because this is so rich, it is often served in small cups with a small amount of butter topped with brown sugar, cinnamon and cream.[3] Traditionally it is eaten with cured meat.
