Frikadelle (Cutlet)

In the late 60's I served in the US Army in northern Germany. We got food from the Schnell Embis. One thing we got was called Frikadelle. I see your recipe for Frikadelle Meat Balls, but this was more of a cutlet of some sort. Also would like to know where to get authentic German condiments in the US, like Senf and German Mayonaise, either a storefront or online. Thanks, Mike

German type Groceries Store
by: Marion D.

I'm from Germany but lived in KS now for the last 40 yrs.I found most of my Items at a store called Aldi or Trader Joe. They mostly in the mid west or California. A new one called Lidl is coming to GA and NC. But you can Google it.
Aldi comes from Germany and belongs to two brothers. So does Trader Joe.
Fricadellen is made with onions,egg,breadcrumbs and spices you can bread the outside and fry them in the pan flatten it like a thick burger.the crumbs are combined with the eggs and meat.

Frikadellen are meatloaf-style meatballs. If it was like a cutlet, it would be a Schnitzel or Kottlet(breaded and on the bone).

You can get all kinds of different mustards (and other german products) at

Hope this helps

German mustard
by: Anonymous

We, too, liked the German mustards we ate in Germany while we lived there, especially the Scharfersenf. Upon returning to the states close to 20 years ago, a new product was on the market called Dijonnaise, produced by Best Foods (I have seen the same products under the Hellmans brand in other parts of the country). It is so close in taste that I refuse to buy plain yellow mustard, or even spicy brown mustard. Because of the German mustards I ate, it is now one of my favorite condiments.
