  • DANISH FRIKADELLER - CHICKEN STYLE DANISH FRIKADELLER - CHICKEN STYLEWell, my mom, and any other Danish person in the world out their would not, absolutely not, call this Frikadeller.  I did not know what else to call this dish.  Normally, Danish Frikadeller is made with ground beef, or a combination of ground beef and pork, or just ground pork.  I could not call this ...
