Total Time

Mildly spiced and herbed with the meat flavour enhanced with sesame oil and soy sauce for an Asian touch, these go down well with both children and adults. Serve with potato wedges, gravy and/or ketchup. Note: The German Frikadeller typically contains white bread cubes briefly presoaked in milk and chopped onions. This recipe omits them. Add them in if you so wish.
