Blandaball / Mixed Balls

This dish from Western Norway is for many, I must admit an acquired taste. My x-wife’s mother used to serve it quite often and quite honestly, it took me some time to appreciate it. Mixing ground fish, onion and potatoes may seem like a strange thing to do, but when you get used to it, it actually is quite delicious – Ted

Ingrid Espelid Hovig was Norway’s TV cook so long that people under fifty hardly remember a time when she was not introducing us all to both new and traditional dishes in her easy and freiendly manner.

The book this recipe is taken from is from a series of books called Ingrids Beste (Ingrid’s Best). This particular book deals with food made in microwaves and was published more than 25 years ago when microwave ovens was seen as the modern housewife’s salvation providing quick and practical cooking.

Our wievs on microwave ovens have change drastically since then, but remember, the recipes in this book can of course be cooked in more traditional manners. And honestly. it might  make them even better – Ted  😉
