Norm's Korvburgers

The American Scandinavian Heritage Foundation and Norm's volunteers will preserve the korvburger tradition begun by Norm Owen. This year the Festival is dedicated to him. His recipes and preparation methods will be utilized. The korvburger has become a special food item known around the United States as well as Sweden. It is served on a limpa rye bun with the choice of lingonberries and mustard on top. Have you had one yet?

This year the korvburgers will be served out of the red building where the beef on wick is being served by St. Timothy's Lutheran Church.



Swedish Pancakes
