Surprise Frikkadel

These surprise frikkadels are my mother’s favourite. Apparently when she was growing up my gran used to make these with her famous sweet chutney. This was my first attempt at making these beauties. I won’t lie I was very scared I thought they would come apart from the egg when I fried them. But thank goodness they did not.They also happen to taste extremely delicious and the recipe should come with a warning label that they can be very addictive.

This recipe roughly makes 6 frikkadels.

  • Take a nice hand full of the mixture and flatten it slightly in the palm of your hand.
