There are dishes which we associate with particular extras. In my home a joint of meat has always been served with potatoes and horseradish or mustard; frikadelles with carrot and peas; and fish with sauerkraut. Even though I can imagine that roast chicken is excellent with fried beetroot, I will automatically serve it with lettuce and cream, and pork chops with cucumber salad.
Cooking stereotypes, or if you prefer - traditions, are nice to follow, but without a bit of madness there wouldn't be so many interesting and surprising combinations. Today I would like to share with you another way to serve traditional frikadelles. Of course, hamburgers aren't my idea (which is a pity because the financial profits would let me sleep better) and I associate them mostly with fast food restaurants. In pictures they look beautiful, but in reality we often get a sandwich which looks like somebody sat on it. Try to prepare it yourself at home. Your children will be delighted with this kind of dinner.
Apparently, hamburgers should be made from beef. Each to his own. I prefer something more exquisite so I use turkey. Choose for yourself. You can bake the roll at home or buy your favourite. I chose a kaiser roll with sesame seeds because we like them the most.
350g of mince turkey
1 small onion
1 clove of garlic
250ml of milk
1 dry kaiser roll
1 teaspoon of herby pepper
