You know how sometimes you really need to chow down on Swedish meatballs, but you also know that if you step foot in IKEA™ with your significant other that the chance of leaving single is high? Well, I have the solution. I am here for you!
Don’t worry about who is going to push those terrible carts that never seem to go in the correct direction.
Don’t worry about fighting about the $20 table that looks hard to put together versus the $30 table that might be fairly straightforward.
Don’t even think about worrying about crowds. No crowds. Not today.
Just make your meatballs at home and call it good!
You’re going to need some fully-cooked frozen meatballs. Two pounds of them. You can never have enough meatballs and that’s a fact. You’ll also want some beef broth, flour, butter, sour cream and a little allspice. And don’t forget the parsley.
Toss the meatballs in the allspice and dump ‘em on a baking sheet. Cook them according to the package directions.
When the meatballs are about done cooking, whip up the super simple gravy. This stuff is drinkable, my friends.
You’ll melt the butter in a saucepan, whisk in the flour, and then whisk in the beef broth. It’ll thicken up like gravy and look delectable.
Stir in some sour cream to make it nice and creamy.
Pour that gravy over the meatballs and dig in. It’s really that simple.
Serve any extra gravy with a side of mashed potatoes. And be on the lookout for some lingonberry jam if you want a really authentic Swedish meatball experience!
