It's been a while since I've had a chance to post. Way to much going on. Things have finally settled and I had a chance to take an afternoon and have some fun.
Christmas is just around the corner so it was time to make some Finker. This is something we always had during the holidays growing up. Old school Danish breakfast food. There is no way SWIMBO would ever eat the original so I modified it to make it acceptable the her.
3 pounds fine ground pork loin
2 pounds turkey breast

It isn't the prettiest but what it lacks in looks it more than makes up for in taste and smell. A couple of poached eggs and a slice of toast is all I need to bring back memories of my childhood.

Looks great so it is kinda like a soup? I can almost smell the aroma of all the great spices.

Not soup. Think Danish version of Mexican chorizo. Where chorizo is vinegary, spicy, savory this is vinegary, sweet.

Those Scandinavians came up with some different concoctions. I'm sure it tastes better than the Norwegian Lutefisk I had to eat at Xmas.
