Have you ever reinvented the wheel?

I often make frikadellen (essentially, meat loaf in sauteed patty form). Yesterday, it occurred to me to shape them into fat cigars. More fit into the pan that way, and I have long rolls on hand for the ones that will be eaten as cold sandwiches. I already shape burgers this way if I will be using hot dog buns, but it hadn't previously occurred to me for frikadellen. However, my self-satisfaction at this clever, I thought, idea, was short-lived. While they were sizzling, I looked up the spelling, since I see it as often with a "c" as a "k". In doing so, I learned that they were ORIGINALLY shaped like a sausage link! Me go tell Og now.... ;^)
