Clean-Out-the-Freezer-Challenge Day 5

Today’s freezer item was frikadeller. Not quite sure when I made these as I forgot to note the date when I froze them, but I suspect sometime during the late summer. I promise I will get a recipe together soon because this is a great dish to bring to potlucks. And this is the season for potlucks, no?

Oh, you don’t know what frikadeller are? They’re Danish meat clumps that taste exactly like suspiciously similar to Swedish meatballs. But heaven forbid I call them meatballs! “That’s what the Swedes eat!” my live-in Dane would say.

Thawed frikadeller can be reheated in a skillet. Don't they look like meatballs?

I originally planned a traditional Danish dinner of frikadeller, potatoes and a vegetable, but at the last minute I changed my mind. Instead we ended up sitting down to frikadeller, hummus, flatbread and salad with chipotle Caesar dressing. Pretty random huh? Still tasty though.

I've never heard of frikadeller, but they look delicious! I can't wait for the recipe.

Thank you! And so simple to make, really. Served with pickled beets, sweet baby pickles or pickled red cabbage...yum!

I'll get my butt in gear and get a recipe together.
