Crebinettes: The Recipe!

One of my favorite things while living with my host family has been Wednesday dinners! Each week my host dad’s parents come over for the afternoon and cook a traditional Danish dinner. Over the weeks I have learned to associate “traditional Danish dinner” with meat, potatoes, and “brown sauce”.


Two weeks ago I went to my host grandparents house to cook Wednesday dinner, as my host family was gone on vacation. Knowing how much I like Frikadella, we decided to make Crebinettes aka giant Frikadellas!!!

For those that don’t know, these are basically giant, juicy meat balls covered with breadcrumbs. They are delicious and easy to make. Below I have listed the recipe for anyone interested in making them.



  • 500 grams of chopped ham meat
  • one egg
  • bread crumbs
  • Salt and peper
  • Butter for frying

Step 1:

Form the meat in five pieces. Form the balls with you hand then flatten them slightly. Beat the egg in a bowl and pour the bread crumbs into a bowl or plate.

Step 2:

Dip each piece in the egg. Place the meat in the bread crumbs and flip it so it is completely covered in a thin layer. Add salt and pepper on top. Now your ready to cook!

Step 3: 

Put butter in the flying pan, allow to melt on medium heat. Fry the pieces for five minutes on each side for a total of ten minutes. Then eat!

To make the perfect meal serve with cooked potatoes and brown sauce (gravy)!
