[Danish] plural æggestander

Danish custard. A sweet custard sauce similar to English custard and containing almonds. It may also, like English custard, be made with a thicker consistency and poured into a mould and set and served cold as a complement to smoked ell, smoked salmon and prawns (US: shrimp) in cold buffet lunches or open sandwiches. It is also commonly served with marinated halibut (US: turbot) as a much enjoyed starter in Denmark.
