Lindström Patties, with Pickled Onions, Fresh Horseradish, and Dilled Sourcream

Lindström Patties, Pickled Onions, and HorseradishMeat and Potatoes. Two staples of the Nordic diet. Given, they consume a lot of fish, but meatballs and patties are always a favorite. This dish blends another commonality, pickled vegetables. Obviously there are pickled onions as a topping, but these smallish patties also contain pickled beets, sweet gherkins, and capers, lending to a very unique and flavorful combination.

When taken altogether as a bite, the chew of the meat, the crunch of the onions, the tang of the horseradish, along with a little scoop of dilled sourcream; it’s quite a thing to behold!
