It’s better than going to the cafeteria at Ikea! An annual holiday tradition at First Lutheran Church, in Duluth, Minnesota, the noel version of a the traditional Swedish dinner features lutefisk, meatballs, salmon, and a variety of sides and authentic breads. A thousand variations of LMS (lutefisk, meatballs, and salmon) is pretty much de riguer for Sweden, unless you happen to venture in to a McDonalds.
This particular fete was an annual hit with BurgerDogBoy’s father and siblings, after the keepers of the family recipes passed on to that giant Volvo dealership in the sky.
Minnesota Burger Reporter Kawikamedia and his burger posse carried on the tradition this year, where it was standing room only.
If you live in Portland, and can’t make it to Duluth, while I can’t promise you lutefisk (lucky you) check out some fairly authentic Swedish fare at Broder.
Naturally, I go for the frikadeller (meat patties) and the Stickholm hot dog!
