ISO: Scandinavian Bread Recipe

It's probably Norwegian and it was called Gristle bread. It was produced by Larsen's Bakery in Brooklyn as late as the 1960's and was purchased in a Staten Island deli called Tryon's. I was just a kid and knew nothing about bread, but it was sure good with the traditional Norwegian cheese Nokkelost. Now I do make my own bread and would like to surprise my 88 year old mother with a loaf or two, but it seems to be a lost recipe. I've spent a lot of time searching and have come up with nothing. The last time I found it in a store was in the early 80's in a deli at the Altamont Mall in Florida. My guess is it's made with a blend of bread, wheat, and possibly light rye flours. The name "gristle" has nothing to do with meat cartilage. If anyone knows what I'm talking about or knows some bread-expert who knows, I (and my mother) would greatly appreciate the info. Thanks, grampart
