Made these with pork and beef and followed intructions as listed with great results. I served these as a finger food with cheddar cheese and chive dip. Very tasty. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
Being from Denmark I can tell that this recipe is very authentic. And they're called frikadeller btw :D
These were great, much like the ones my danish exchange student made years ago. Thanks!
