My husband made these delicious turkey frikadellen the other night. I was taking care of our son, so I didn't follow his every move, but he based his recipe on the one below. He substituted ground turkey for the half pork, half beef that they suggest in the recipe.
- 1 c. chopped onion (about 1/2 of a large onion)
- 1 tsp. oil
- 1 day-old roll (about 2 oz.), softened in hot milk or water and squeezed dry.
- 1 lb. ground meat (half and half; pork and beef)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
- 3 T. chopped, fresh parsley or 1 T. dried parsley
- 1 T. chopped, fresh marjoram or 1 tsp. dried marjoram
- 1 T. butter
- 1 T. olive oil
Place chopped onion in a small bowl, drizzle with 1 teaspoon oil, cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high 2-3 minutes, or until translucent. Cool slightly.
Break softened roll into little pieces in a bowl, add meat and the rest of the ingredients and the cooked onion and mix well.
Heat butter and olive oil together in a frying pan. Form 4 patties and fry over medium high heat until browned on both sides. Place the patties on a baking sheet and place in a 350°F oven for 15 minutes, or until done.
My husband served the frikadellen alongside some rice with lemons and a salad.
