Probably one of the most common dishes in Denmark is The Danish Meatballs or as they are called in Danish "Frikadeller".
Served with brown gravy or white sauce, potatoes and usually beetroot or red cabbage.
The Meatballs are ideal for freezing as well, so just do up a big batch and you have enough for a couple of meals in the freezer, unless you have kids like mine, every time they go past the stove
they grab a couple of meatballs, they are also nice cold, in a sandwich or just as they are.
