German Hamburgers (Frikadellen)



3 Kaiser roll

2 pounds ground beef

1 pound ground pork

3 onion, finely chopped

3/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

3 egg

1 tablespoon Hungarian hot paprika (optional)

1 pinch Salt, table


Instructions Checklist

Soak Kaiser roll in a bowl of water for 10 minutes. Drain, squeezing out excess water, and crumble into a large bowl.

Mix crumbled roll with ground beef, ground pork, onion, parsley, egg, paprika, salt, and black pepper until well blended. Shape meat into large flattened meatballs.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; fry meatballs until browned and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side.


Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
