Hamburgers Lindstrom With Danish-Style New Potatoes. Listening To Dine Isaksen.


C’mon y’all! I’m getting out of a food rut and taking us all to Scandinavia.

Biff à la Lindström, aka Hamburgers Lindstrom, is a perennial favorite in Sweden. I found the combination of beef and beets so interesting. I loved dipping pieces of the burger in sour cream. Different and delicious.

Now off to Denmark for Brunede Kartofler or Danish-Style New Potatoes. This side dish bathes tender potatoes in a butter-sugar mixture until they become caramelized. Yum, right?

Hamburgers Lindstrom


1⁄2 pound lean ground beef
1⁄2 cup chopped cooked beets
1⁄3 cup dry bread crumbs
1 large egg white
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1⁄2 teaspoon dill weed
1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
4 teaspoons sour cream
2 teaspoons snipped dill and/or minced parsley


1. Mix together the ground beef, beets, bread crumbs, egg white, vinegar, dill weed, and pepper. Shape into 4 round patties and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

2. In a heavy 10 inch skillet, melt the butter over moderately high heat. Add the patties and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes on each side.

3. Drain burgers on paper towels, transfer to a warm platter, and garnish with the sour cream and dill.

Danish-Style New Potatoes


16 small new potatoes, unpeeled (I used fingerlings)
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon minced fresh dill


1. In a medium saucepan, bring 3 cups water to a boil. Add potatoes and simmer, partially covered, for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

2. Drain potatoes and let cool 10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, heat the 1/4 cup water and the brown sugar in a large heavy skillet over moderate heat. Cook, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved, about 2 minutes. Add the butter and cook until melted, about 1 minute.

4. Stir potatoes into butter mixture and toss until heated through. Sprinkle with dill and serve.

And now a little music from Denmark, chosen since the band name has Dine in it.

Iskold Indeni which translates to Icy Inside is probably full of awesome lyrics, but I wouldn’t know as my Danish is rusty. I’m fluent in a good pop beat, though, so am happily tapping along.

Check out Dine Isaksen on the band’s Website. You can buy the music on Bandcamp.
