Frikandel is a deep fried sausage composed of various different meats. In contrast to other sausages such as bratwurst, the frikandel has no casing to peel off. While in the past the frikandel was made at butcher’s shops, nowadays it is produced industrially by brands like Mora and Beckers. This popular Dutch snack is usually eaten with a sauce, most often mayonnaise or ketchup. The frikandel speciaal is a much appreciated variant, consisting of a frikandel cut open along its length and accompanied by mayonnaise, curry ketchup and a finely chopped onion, which sit nicely inside the opening cut into the frikandel.
Where does the frikandel come from?
The frikandel became widespread from the 1950s onwards. As is the case for many specialties, numerous versions exist regarding the origin of the frikandel. In the Netherlands, the story goes that a butcher’s assistant called Gerrit was forced to change the recipe of his meatballs as a result of a law reform. Instead of modifying the recipe, he fashioned the meatballs into a sausage shape. The owner of a local snack bar, native to Germany, named the sausage-shaped meatballs after a German flat meatball known as Frikadelle. Present day´s there is no standard recipe for the frikandel, so every manufacturer can give it its own distinctive touch. This contributes to the mystery surrounding the recipe and the ingredients of the frikandel and is also the reason why someone may prefer one brand over another, depending on its characteristic flavour.
