“The original hamburger, these are served like a flattened meatball with some steamed string beans and salad. I also like to use this recipe to make Swedish meatballs (but omit the paprika). My Aunt in Hamburg, Germany taught me this recipe and I've been making them ever since. Serve with steamed string beans and tossed salad. Or serve on a Kaiser roll with lettuce, tomato, pickled cucumbers, finely sliced deep fried onions and curry ketchup.” - by Amy
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Soak Kaiser roll in a bowl of water for 10 minutes. Drain, squeezing out excess water, and crumble into a large bowl.
- Mix crumbled roll with ground beef, ground pork, onion, parsley, egg, paprika, salt, and black pepper until well blended. Shape meat into large flattened meatballs.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; fry meatballs until browned and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side.

"I doubled this recipe (I actually had two day-old Kaiser rolls to use, believe it or not) and actually made meatballs out of them. I set half aside for tomorrow and used the other half to make Swedish..." See more Meatballs in a homemade cream sauce. Delicious!"
"Excellent recipe! I grew up eating Frikadellen and these are just as I remembered. I will be making them for my family often. Thanks Amy!..." See more"
