A veal burger named after the forefather of the largest industrial family in Sweden, and a true delicacy with its velvety smooth flavors.
Recipe Type: Main Course
Serves: 4
  • 1 lb of Ground veal
  • 1 Teaspoon of salt
  • ½ Teaspoon of white pepper
  • 4 Egg yolks from free range eggs
  • 1 Cup of heavy cream
  • 3 Tablespoons of breadcrumbs
  • Organic butter and vegetable oil for frying
  • 4 Oz of frozen green peas
  • Lingonberry Jam or Red Currant Jam for serving
  1. In a large mixing bowl, place veal, salt, white pepper and beat in the egg yolks one at the time. Then blend in the heavy cream while stirring with a wooden spoon. Make sure the mixture is completely smooth.
  2. Shape into rather thick burgers and chill in the fridge for about a 1 hour. Heat the butter and oil in a saute pan. Take the burgers, coat them with the bread crumbs and fry gently for 4 minutes on each side, or until just cooked.
  3. Blanch the green peas for 45 seconds in lightly salted boiling water.
  4. Arrange all ingredients on a plate and drizzle a little melted butter over the peas.
  5. Serve with Lingonberry Jam or Red Currant Jam, and mashed potatoes.

  • A true Swedish classic from my childhood. When I grew up, this was luxury food that you got treated to at a restaurant maybe once or twice a year. Spread the gospel – this dish belongs in every bistro in the world. It’s that good.

  • Only just returned from Sweden where we tried this lovely dish. Indulgent, smooth and delicious, made only better by eating this by the Sea on a warm, Summer’s evening……

  • My mom and I pick 3 different countries every month and we choose one dish from each to try.. Making this tonight… Looks amazing and cant wait to try it. I will comment again after we ty it.

  • Thanks for the recipe, my best friend is Swedish and is visiting me for Thanksgiving (US) He said he had this as a child and loved it. Said he never had it with veal as they was poor growing up… after searching YouTube for ages I stumbled across this recipe. Gonna give it a try, I am going to add a little waygu a5 fat to the mix for some extra beef flavor!
