Ingredients

Frikadeller:
3/4 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1 large onion - grated
1/2 c. breadcrumbs
4 Tbsp flour
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2-3 cloves of garlic
1/2 tsp. sage leaves
half & half (or milk) for consistency (1/4 to 1/2 c.)
butter

Gravy:
3/4 - 2 Tbsp drippings from Frickadeller
tiny butter if needed
3 Tbsp flour
1 c. heavy cream (Milk works too)
1 Tbsp. beef bouillon
salt & pepper


Frikadeller:


Combine beef, pork and onion. Add breadcrumbs, flour, eggs, salt, pepper, nutmeg, garlic, and sage leaves (it works best if you mix it with your hands).



Slowly add half & half for consistency (you want them to be slightly sticky, you shouldn't be able to form them into a perfect ball). Coat large skillet well with butter. Drop clumps of mixture (a heaping tablespoon-size) onto the skillet.



Fry on medium to medium low heat until brown (press the meat down a lightly with a fork so it flattens out a little.. it should look like a fat hamburger.. see picture below), then flip (approx 3-5 minutes per side). Add more butter with each batch.



Serve with gravy (see below). **Don't wash the skillet-- you will want the brown bits and drippings for the gravy**



For the gravy:


Add the flour to the drippings to form a roux (add butter if needed). Slowly add cream (or milk) until mixture reaches gravy consistency. Add beef bouillon, salt & pepper to taste.
