Frikadeller (Danish Meatballs) Recipe

Danske Frikadeller (Danish meatballs) are flattened a bit – more like a patty rather than a round ball – and fried in oil until browned. Delicious with red cabbage and Danish potato salad.

Preparation:  20 minutes | Cook Time:  20 minutes | Serves:  8



  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely minced
  • 1 cup fine bread crumbs (I use Panko)
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon coarse ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup sour cream


  1. Combine beef, pork and bread crumbs.  With hands work in milk, eggs, salt and 1 teaspoon of coarse ground pepper.  Roll into balls (the size of a meatball) then, either leave as balls or gently flatten to form small oval patties.
  2. Melt butter in large heavy skillet.  Cook patties  for about 4-5 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through.  Remove and keep warm.   Whisk flour into the pan drippings.  Gradually whisk in stock.  Continue whisking until thickened.  Whisk in 1/2 teaspoon of coarse ground pepper, the heavy cream and sour cream and heat through.  Return patties to skillet and gently spoon sauce over the patties.  Serve frikadeller immediately.
