We eat these on Kaiser rolls with pickled red cabbage. The Danes don't usually eat them on a bun as far as I know. There are lots of recipes online for these. This one is from a Danish friend of mine.

Recipe Ingredients for Frikadeller (Danish meatballs)

1 lb ground pork
2 eggs
1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1 medium onion
3/4 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for Frikadeller (Danish meatballs)

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.

  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl using clean hands.

  3. Form into slightly flattened football shapes about 3" long in your palms. This is the traditional Danish shape for frikadeller.

  4. In a non-stick pan on medium high heat, brown the frikadeller on both sides (2-4 minutes each side) and then transfer to an oven-proof baking dish.

  5. Finish cooking in the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until done all the way through. If you want to hold them before serving, cover to keep them from drying out.

  6. In Denmark, these are always eaten with pickled red cabbage which you can get in jars here (or make your own).

  7. Makes six frikadeller, enough for three hungry people. Easily doubled or tripled if you need more.
