Burgers German-style – Frikadellen

My hubby asked for Frikadellen and I thought, oh wow, that’s a kind of burger other countries don’t know.

Ingredients (2 p.):

  • 400 g ground beef
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 roll, previously soaked in water and squeezed (I used a Brez’n)
  • 1 tsp. spicy mustard (we love French Maille – “il n’y a Maille qui m’aille”)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • pepper (cayenne pepper makes for a good mood)
  • 4-5 potatoes, boiled and sprinkled with paprika and butter
blend all ingredients well

Mix all the ingredients with a fork until blended. If the dough is too moist you can add bread crumbs. Moisten your hands and shape patties, best all of the same size. Cook in a heavy skillet with some margarine, turning the patties several times to ensure they are cooked all the way through.

Cook on medium heat turning the patties several times. Make sure the beef is cooked through.

Serve the Frikadellen with spicy (Maille) mustard and the boiled potatoes, buttered and sprinkled with paprika for flavor.

Veggie Variation: Sometimes I add in grated carrots, which offer a special touch of flavor. We call those our “Bunny Burgers”.
