Yeah! Frikadeller for dinner. This is in our opinion the danish national dish no. 2. Right after “Stegt flæsk med persillesovs” of course.
Vi love frikadeller and they are so easy to make, so no excuses! My moms traditional frikadeller are just the best! Most danish people probably feel that way. All the good memories about safety and “hygge” with the family. Our mothers or grand mothers frikadeller is something most of us remembers from our childhood.
It is a good idea to make a tasting-frikadelle, to test and see if you added enough salt before you cook them all. Or maybe two just to be completely sure 😉
Here is our recipe for delicious danish frikadeller with oatmeal. Oatmeal gives the right texture to the meatballs, just as we like them. These meatballs are also glutenfree, so everybody can have a taste.
They are sooo good as everyday food, in the lunch box, for christmas lunch or as an easy meal you can store in the freezer for the days where you just dont want to cook.
