The secret of a perfect Frikkadel is to mix the mixture gently with two forks, if you over mix you will most definitely have cannon balls – or maybe you have a better word for them! Mince with a higher fat content will make Frikkadel’s juicier. Moisten bread crumbs with a tablespoon of milk before adding them to the mince. Some types of bread absorb the moisture from the meat and it can dry out the Frikkadel. If your meatballs fall apart while cooking, the chances are that your ingredients are not chopped finely enough.
You can mix your beef with pork.
