You can either cook the potatoes on the same day you are making your burgers or use them from the day before. To quicken the work in the kitchen I use prepared cooked canned lentils. The burgers form and fry very well, nothing crumbles or sticks. This is the perfect dish for lovers of potatoes and all kinds of chops. You can serve them with any salad and sauce.

It's an amazing experience to cook on the site of Vistehola, probably the best-known Stone Age settlement in Norway. Known locally as Svarthålå (the black hole). This was home to one or more extended families in the Mesolithic era, between 6700 and 8900 years ago.

  • 550 g of peeled potatoes
  • 230 g of cooked brown or green lentils
  • 50 g of red onion
