Frikandellen burnt ends

Dutch people do all kinds of weird stuff with food. But this recipe is as weird as it is brilliant. In the Netherlands, we’ve got maybe a hundred kinds of deep-fried snacks and the frikandel is probably the most popular.
Frikandellen are deep-fried chicken/pork sausages. Usually eaten with lots of mayonnaise, ketchup and raw onions. We saw someone made burnt ends with them and it looked so delicious we had to try it.

  • 4 piece frikandellen frozen
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 50 gram butter
  • 1 tbsp white sugar

Dry rub

  • 1 part salt
  • 1 part paprika powder
  • 1 part onion powder
  • ¼ part garlic powder
  • ¼ part curry powder

BBQ sauce


  • Mix the ingredients for the dry rub. Put some mayonnaise on the frozen frikandellen so the rub can stick and sprinkle the rub on all the sides.
  • Start your grill with 2 zones and a temperature of 150°C/300°F. Place the frikandellen on the cooler side of the grates and close the lid.
  • In the meantime, make the BBQ sauce by mixing all the ingredients in a pan and let it come to a slow simmer.
  • When the frikandellen are soft and the rub caramelized you can take them out the grill and cut them in 3 cm pieces.
  • Put the parts in aluminium trays with some butter, white sugar and BBQ sauce.
  • Put the trays back in the grill and let the sauce get sticky.
