Swedish Hamburgers (Malda Flaskbiffar)

This recipe is different from my other Swedish Burger recipe in that it is made and served with fried onions and cream gravy over mashed potatoes. Kind of like meatballs only in a bigger form!

This was ok - a real stick to your ribs meal if you serve it on mashed potatoes. The pork really didn't have much of a flavor - it needs something - I just haven't quite figured out what it is. Maybe garlic, I'll probably try this again...

I used ground beef and it tasted very good. Easy to make and the sauce is good tasting with hamburger and mashed potatoes.

Oh just lovely. The burgers tasted great and I would have never thought of this as a regular burger. I didn't have any cream so I improvised and used liquid coffee creamer and worked great. We had the sauce over rice and that was quicker to fix and dinner was running kinda late. Thanks for a new burger recipe.
