Recipe by jonesies
READY IN: 45mins




  • In a small pan, melt the 1 tablespoon of butter.
  • When the foam subsides, add the onions and cook for 2 or 3 minutes or until they are soft and transparent, but not brown.
  • Scrape into a large bowl and add the meat, egg yolks, capers, salt, pepper and white vinegar.
  • Mix together and moisten with the heavy cream.
  • Then stir in the drained chopped beets. Shape the mixture into 12-14 round patties, about 2-3 inches in diameter. Note: if using the fried eggs, make into four patties.
  • In a heavy large skillet, heat the butter and oil.
  • When the foam subsides, add the patties 3 or 4 at a time and cook over moderately high heat for 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until they are a deep brown.
  • In Sweden, these spicy hamburgers are frequently served with a fried egg set atop each, in which case they are made larger and thicker.
