What vegetables go with Swedish meatballs

Agurkesalat is directly translated from Danish cucumber salad. It is very easy to make and in Denmark it is very often served together with smørrebrød – open-faced sandwiches – as a topping. 

This is a very common meal in Denmark. Danish biksemad is very strongly related to the Swedish meal “Pytt i Panna” which is a mix of potatoes, pork and is often served with fried eggs.

Brændende kærlighed is a danish meal and directly translated it means burning love. It is meal with mashed potatoes added with bacon and onions. People from Denmar love this meal.

This is a Danish specialty – Denmark was traditionally a nation of fishermen. And a lot of their special food traditions are related to the sea like this recipe on the fish fillet.

Frikadeller is danish meatballs. There is no direct translation of frikadeller from danish and the word most likely origins from Italy. What makes frikadeller or Danish meatballs special are the size and the use. Frikadeller is bigger than meatballs from Sweden, Greece and so on. Almost double the size. Then they are used both as a dinner meal and as servings in the famous danish lunch tradition.

Here is the inspiration for when you are serving Swedish Meatballs. Enjoy!
