More About This Recipe
  • 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. 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!
