Frikadellen are German, pan-fried meat patties. These small burgers are usually served to you with mustard and sides of potato salad in pubs.
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 tsp. oil
- 1 piece of day-old bread, softened in warm milk and squeezed dry
- 1 lb. ground beef (or half beef and half pork)
- 1 egg
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
Break bread into small pieces into a medium bowl. Add meat and the remaining ingredients along with the cooked onion and mix well.
Heat 1 Tbsp. butter and 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium frying pan. Form 6-8 small patties and fry over medium-high heat until browned on both sides and cooked through.
Serve with mustard, potato salad and a cold beer.
These are good warm or cold on a sandwich!
