These burning questions must be answered! Neb has already answered two for me.
A cheese danish in Denmark is called a cream cake or "Flødekager" and french frys are "Pommes frites"
Now someone must tell me the names of these in their native lands...

English Muffin
Canadian Bacon
Polish sausage
and um.....German potato salad [img]tongue.gif[/img] Feel free to add to the list

English Muffin = Engelsk Muffin
Canadian Bacon = Canadisk bacon
Polish sausage = Polsk Sausage
German potato salad = Tysk potet salat

and that "A cheese danish in Denmark is called a cream cake or "Flødekager"NO it is Flødekage!!! Not Flødekager
cheese danish = En Dansk Ost and a cream cake = Fløtekake!

All this above is translated in to Norwegian! and it is almost the same in Danish!

Atually, bacon would be referred to as:

Lard Canadien (that's right, lard [img]tongue.gif[/img] ) in French
Bacon in English [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Hmmm...lemme see if I can pronounce it for you in my native language:

*ahem*...

English Muffin = English Muffin
Canadian Bacon = Canadian Bacon
Polish sausage = Polish sausage (though I buy it in the store and sometimes it's called Polska Kielbasa there [img]tongue.gif[/img] )
and um.....German potato salad = um.....German potato salad

*whew!* Hope you can handle those pronunciations!
