Family Recipe Friday - Wallenbergare (Veal burgers)
Wallenbergare is a traditonal Swedish dish. It is made of ground veal, cream, egg yolks, salt, pepper and bread crumbs. It shold be fried lightly and is often served with boiled or mased potatoes and green peas.
The dish got its name after the district judge Marcus Wallenberg. There are many story about how the dish got its name but no one knows which one is true. One is that Markus one day in the middle of the 1930's came in to his favorite restaurant Cecil in Stockholm. Hed just gotten home from a trip abroad where he had had a wonderful dish of chopped veal. He asked the chef, Julius Carlsson, to make something like it and so he did. Another story says that Marcus' wife, the daughter of a famous cookbook author, created the dish.
