"1 thing SusieQusie & I did to prepare me for what she called *Mary Pats Grand Adventure in Iceland* was to buy a cookbook by Nika Hazelton titled *Classic Scandinavian Cooking* & it was the only cookbook I brought w/me over 4 yrs ago. Although I have spent more time sharing classic US cuisine w/Icelanders, I decided to revisit this cookbook to see what I could find to share here on RZ. Only she will know why this recipe tickles me so. Per the intro ... All the Norse love meatballs, but the Danes' affection & use for them amounts to a national passion. *Frickadeller* are made from every kind of meat. They are eaten continually, either hot or at room temp. The club soda makes them light. ... # of servings was given, but time has been estimated. *Enjoy* !"

"I'd give this recipe 5 stars for the meatballs alone!!! SOOOO tender! I'm gonna try adding club soda to my Italian meatballs! Great secret ingredient! Made for ZWT 9!"
"I really enjoyed these meatballs. I did make them with the sauce, so totally blew my diet, but they were yummy and it was worth it! Made for Newest Tag! Thanks for sharing! :)"
"I'm usually not a fan of meatballs, but these little gems are deeeelicious! I think it must be the club soda that makes them lighter than the usual fare. Thank you for sharing your recipe, twissis. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds of ZWT 6!"
"ZWT6: Twissy - OUTSTANDING!! These morsels barely made it out of the pan before heading for our mouths!! Delicious!! I cannot wait to make these again!"
"Picked this recipe to make for the Scandanavian (sp?) part of ZWT #6 and it's a real winner. I have to admit this is the first time I've ever made homemade meatballs of any kind and from now on it won't be the last. These are awesome and with pork and the lemon just that little differant to make you aware they are not Italian. I made this early in the afternoon to try when cool and it was so good - then put them in the crock pot on warm for dinner that night. Made the sauce just before serving and served over rice noodles and we were in meatball heaven. As you said, not a low fat meal but hey you have to splurge sometimes. Directions were clear even for my beginner status and I was thrilled at how easy they are to prepare. Thanks twissis for a great recipe that I'll be making often."
"Very much like my great-aunt Joy used to make me when I visited her in Viborg, South Dakota. I miss her and am glad to bring this recipe into my kitchen. Clear and easy instructions. Thanks!"
