I heart Danish Comfort Food! (Part Four – krebinetter)

Time for another Danish classic.  Krebinetter.  Or Danish pork patties to you and me.  Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy to make and a guaranteed hit with kids.  (And – selvfølgelig – me.)

Our family’s krebinetter med stuvede grøntsager

Take 500g (or half a kilo) of minced pork and form it into small patties.  I find it’s easiest to divide it into half, then four parts from each half – giving you eight patties in all.   And nope, you don’t add salt, pepper or anything else to the pork.  (I didn’t believe the recipe the very first time I made them but it’s true – just pure pork.)

Dip the patties in beaten egg and then in seasoned breadcrumbs.  (That’s where the salt and pepper comes in.)

Fry in a shallow mix of butter and vegetable oil.  About 4 or 5 minutes on each side should do the trick.  You want them crisp and golden, not burnt…

Serve with boiled potatoes and vegetables or – the way we always eat them in our house – with yet another Danish classic…stuvede grøntsager (lightly cooked vegetables in a white sauce).  Then dig in.  Velbekomme!

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
