These are IKEA’s iconic Swedish meatballs that most of us know intimately
IKEA got the internet excited when it posted a recipe for making its meatballs at home!
Here is the recipe. IKEA’s meatballs are very easy to make
“We know that some people might be missing our meatballs, which is why we’ve released an at-home alternative which, using easily accessible ingredients, will help those looking for some inspiration in the kitchen,” Lorena Lourido, country food manager at IKEA in the UK and Ireland, said in a press release.
“Staying at home can be hard, but we want to help make everyone’s lives that little bit easier and more enjoyable. Bon appétit or, smaklig måltid, as we say in Sweden!” she added.
The pandemic had closed all 22 of IKEA’s stores in the UK last month. Fortunately, some of their food halls are now reopened so that essential workers and the vulnerable can pop by for a quick but filling meal.
Swedish meatballs are traditionally served with potatoes, lingonberry jam, and cream sauce. According to IKEA, the lingonberry sweetness contrasts and harmonizes with the meatballs, while the cream sauce serves as a “mediator between the two.
Here’s how ecstatic some people were about the recipe!
