Hamburgers, frikadellen and koftas

Hamburger meat recipes are extremely versatile. A common thread in hamburgers, frikadellen and koftas is that the minced beef is bound together with bread crumbs and egg. From there, you can flavour the mixture with whichever herbs and spices take your fancy. - Mix ground coriander, cinnamon and cayenne pepper into the mince, shape and refrigerate before throwing these barbecue perfect patties on the grill. - Add finely chopped onion and fresh parsley into the beef, bread crumb and egg mix, roll into small balls for cocktail frikadellen and larger balls for a main meal. Fry lightly serve with a dipping sauce at a cocktail function, picnic or a snack, or add gravy after they are fried and serve over mashed potato. - For a middle eastern inspired dish add onion, coriander, cumin, garlic, lemon and mint to the beef mince. Press egg shaped clumps of the mince mixture into skewers and cook over an open flame. Serve your koftas with lemony yogurt dressing.
