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.
- Frozen frikandellen
- white sugar
For the dry rub
- 1 part salt
- 1 part paprikapowder
- 1 part onion powder
- 1/4 part garlic powder
- 1/4 curry powder
For the bbq sauce
- 1 cup of ketchup
- 3 tbsp of sherry vinegar
- 1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 cup of maple syrup
- 1/4 cup of whiskey
- 1 tbsp of the dry rub
- 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 (300F). 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.
