There are many recipes that Norwegians consider as a national dish. Norwegian meatballs might be the one many of the elderly would say was their favorite. We say you have to go home to mom’s meatballs to feel at home in Norway. Every recipe is a little different, but consist of mostly the same ingredients. It’s important for a Norwegian household to have their special recipe. I’ve looked through my family recipes and modernized the tastes for this recipe, including a little more spiciness with cayenne pepper, and I use heavy cream instead of milk.
