My great-grandmother Dorothy Sorensen Kinnick immigrated from Denmark to the United States in 1903, landing at Ellis Island. This is a recipe handed down to me from her daughter Eileen Kinnick Smith (my Grandma Smith). It's best described as a danish hamburger recipe! But they have always been refered to as Fricadels.
The photo shows the Kinnick family abt. summer 1938. L.to R. Edward (Buzz), Mary Eileen (Grandma Smith), Leo, Paul, and Dorothy Kinnick.
1 T. flour
1/2 C. Milk
Onion, pepper, salt
Combine all ingredients and shape burger mix into patties. Drop 2 T. fat in skillet. Fry patties on both sides until done in the middle.
