Frikadeller for fun; Day 27

Well, here we go with recipe two.

It is a take on a Scandinavian favourite; traditional meatballs, known as Frikadeller. I use to love eating these meat patties for dinner with mushroom sauce on top of creamy mash potatoes.

Today however I will cooking these rissoles in the oven with a mushroom and celery sauce and served on top of a bed of wilted Spinach.
