Norwegian Boneless ‘Birds’ / Benløse ‘Fugler’

Boneless ‘birds’ is one of the old classic Norwegian meat dishes that is about to be forgotten. “Poor Man’s Birds”, slices of veal filled with bacon and parsley are worth the effort and taste delicious with stewed vegetables, boiled potatoes and sauce.

Frikadelles / Frikadeller

A Scandinavian dinner classic found on rema.noFrikadelles / Frikadeller

We associate these delicious, small frikadelles first and foremost with the Danes, but they are popular all over Scandinavia. The name, on the other hand, came via Germany, probably from Italian fritto, and refers to the frikadelles being cooked in a frying pan.

Homemade Stewed Cabbage / Hjemmelaget Stuet Kål

Stewed cabbage is a classic Norwegian side dish that you easily make yourself. It is usually served with meat balls, dinner sausages and any sort of smoked meat.

You can buy packages of half finished stewed cabbage (cooked, dried cabbage flakes and the dry ingredients for the sauce) at most grocers here in Norway, but the result is nothing compared with what you get if you cook stewed cabbage from scratch yourself.
