Was just watching Bizaar America while wrapping presents and Andrew Zimmern ate sausage made with luefisk. He and the man who makes it said it was good (I'll take their word for it).
I had a lutefisk bratwurst at our 2010 Syttende Mai festival.  The flavor was there but it wasn't overpowering.

    Was it a good flavor even if not overpowering? Honestly I would give it a try.

        I actually did a short writeup about the experience.

          You were brave to try it. I believe I would just give the pretty young ladies a $4 donation and let them keep the 'lute'! You know, I used to have four kittens of a litter and one was a brave little soul called "Einstein" who was the first to try out everything while the others watched. If it was safe, they tried it next. It was a role he kept all his life and I would bet he'd be the first with the lutefisk bratwurst. I think you would have liked him.

            I haven't had, and want to try
            A Rochester garbage plate
            The lamb sandwich at Phillipe's (already had the beef)
            A real Cuban sandwich in Miami
            Grapenuts or Indian pudding in a New England diner
            beef on weck
            A real corned beef and pastrami sandwich from a NY deli; had plenty, but want the authentic experience
            A green chili cheeseburger
            whole belly clams
            The Czech food from the restaurant in Cleveland who's name escapes me...I love Eastern European food especially in the cold months...
            pit beef from Baltimore
            Real Santa Maria style barbecue tritip from the Hitching Post in CA
            Good tamales, Delta style or otherwise
            Biscuits from Loveless Cafe; all my trips to Nashville, and still haven't gotten there.
            A second vote for Cornell Chicken, make it at home several times a year, and it's great, but the real deal would be cool.
            Real Johhnycakes
            Pies from anyplace Buffetbuster goes, but the Northern Michigan sour cherry pies are tops on the list.

              You will get a real corned beef or pastrami sandwich, and it will likely be stellar, however in order to relive that "authentic experience", you would have to travel back in a time machine about 5 or 6 decades ago, as you will be dining with tourists like yourself and the deli employees will not be old crabby Jewish men (they all died decades ago)

                I've never had a chili dog. Rumor has it that it's popular in New Jersey.

                  There are certain parts of the country that I haven't been to yet and that is where I need to try:
                  Cincinnati Chili
                  Kentucky Mutton Burgoo
                  Kentucky Hot Brown
                  Maine Lobster roll
                  Philly Cheesesteak
                  Conch Chowder and fritters
                  Indiana Tenderloin sandwich
                  Some items I have had elsewhere but of course I want to try them in the area that made them famous. And of course I need to try:
                  Lutefisk


                  In April you can cross off the first one!

                        The fried baloney sandwich was the comfort food of my youth in Indianapolis. Drugstore counters served it. Mom served it. It kind of died when fast food burger chains finally came into vogue in the late 50s/early 60s. Note I spelled it baloney not balogna. We Midwesterners were just not that sophisticated.

                          I first heard of fried bologna sandwiches in 1965 in Charleston, West Virginia. Sure, I'd had sandwiches made with thin slices of fried  bologna on white bread before, but I'd never seen anything like the half-inch thick slice, fried crusty and served on a bun with onions and pickles. They called them Hillbilly hamburgers.

                                  My father called it depression food in that it was all we could afford. When he cooked he bought a slab of baloney, maybe 10 pounds or so, and baked it like a ham complete with glaze and Dole pineapple slices. I suspect he was only being cute. We could afford the ham. Maybe that was what he knew growing up.

                                    I'm sure Cajunking can steer you to a decent breaded pork tenderloin sandwich but you'll have to cross into Indiana to get a good one. Don't trust the Mayor though. He seems happy with Culver's.
