I like these hot or cold on a fresh bun with any burger style toppings, but they eat beautifully as a meat, accompanied by potatoes and a vegetable.
Boiled potatoes with crisp onion topping and carrots and peas together with Frikadellen used to be a highlight in my grandma’s kitchen
Left over Frikadellen were devoured the day after as my school lunch on a sandwich. YUMMMM!
