Cooking / Culinary / canteen menu
Swedish term or phrase: Cheddar korv
lamm och Cheddar korv med potatis gratäng

Context: a canteen menu with more or less normal dishes, e.g. Pytt i panna, Biff Lindström, or Lax med purjolöksås och färskpotatis on different days of the week.
And on Thursday, I think, lamm och Cheddar korv med potatis gratäng.

Could it be a misprint for lamm och korv med potatis och Cheddar gratäng?

If anyone can explain what it is, I'll be very grateful!

English translation:cheddar sausage
Explanation:
Det är ju vanligt med särskrivning på svenska, så jag gissar att de menar lamm- och cheddarkorv, alltså lammkorv med cheddarost i. Eller på kanske?

Kanske inte precis den vanligaste korven, men korv med ost i förekommer ju lite då och då i butikerna.

Thanks a lot!

I'd hate to spoil Cheddar and the sausage by mixing them. (I too miss real Cheddar; my father's from Somerset...) But there's no accounting for tastes, and some things do taste far better than they sound!

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  George Hopkins: Isn't Cheddar sausage something originally from Cheddar, England? It's rather confusing. Google Images gives lots of hits but no firm definition. I would probably concentrate on the lamb and leave the sausage.

  -> You tell me! I have no idea, just guessing here ...

agree  Madeleine MacRae Klintebo: Jag tror du gissar rätt. Och även om cheddar inte är den vanligaste osten i Svergige (tack och lov) kan man även få tag på den där.

agree  Clare Barnes: Ostkorv is quite commonly sold as fast food at petrol stations - much nicer than they sound. I miss cheddar cheese over here...
