At our house, 500 grams might be more like 2 servings unless served with a lot of potato salad. The recipe has some similarity to false hare. I prefer the false hare but since I also like the frikadelle, I ask my wife to make it because I think it's easier for her to prepare. We use marjoram and minced onions in the frikadelle. In season I like a little lovage in addition to or in place of the marjoram.

In the nations of frikadelle's origins meat portions are, or were, more modest than here in the states.

Yeah, that should have said three servings. Oops, I'll ask a moderator to edit that for me.

This is only one variation on frikadeller. The classic one would definitely have lots of finely chopped onion.

Interesting, we call them the same name in Russian, I was wondered at the times where the term came from, thank you.

Your Danish Meatballs Are A Great Smorsgorsburg

Tax Lady and Charlie D,

Thanks for posting ... Nice recipe. I love the multi cultural array of meatballs, and each culture has their take on them too !

The Spanish call them Albondigas, and of course there are the Italian, and the Greek too.

When, I had travelled to Stockholm several years ago to visit a dear friend I went to University with, I had the opportunity to have some with venison as well. They were quite delicious too.

M.C.
