Swedish meatballs is the national dish of Sweden and it has a lot of variations, commonly they made out of pork, beef and/or veal with bread crumbs, milk and nutmeg.
Not a lot of Swedish recipes are popular (it might just be me) but I guess everyone knows what a smorgasbord is and probably it is the best and most popular Swedish contribution to the culinary world. For those who does not know what a smorgasbord is, it’s a Swedish name for buffet meals where numerous dishes are served, I am not sure whether the Swedes started the buffet style dining but definitely it is the most popular one. Having said that no proper Swedish smorgasbord will be complete without this dish, the Swedish Meatballs.
Swedish meatballs is the national dish of Sweden and it has a lot of variations, commonly they made out of pork, beef and/or veal with bread crumbs, milk and nutmeg. This is then formed into balls roughly an inch in diameter pan fried in butter then finished off with a creamy white sauce. It is usually served with boiled egg noodles but Ikea I guess popularized serving it with mashed potatoes and lingonberry jam. If you haven’t tried it well its quite different to the consistency of the popular Italian meatballs as these are softer in texture.

I am very fond of Swedish meatballs and make them often.They were very popular in the U.S. in the 1950’s-early’60’s, especially as party food.I have no idea why they seem to have fallen out of favor, as I find them wonderful.
I could appily it with these and a few toothpicks and pick my way through an easy afternoon on the sofa! The pregnant lady inside of me craves tasty morsels like these! Just wish it wasn’t 30+C outside though 😉 Tasty food as always Raymund!
