Now you can make Ikea's famous meatballs at home!
DIY furniture aside, Ikea is a great spot for some Swedish meatballs and mashed potatoes. And now, thanks to the powers that be, not only do you get the ingredient list and method, but this handy-dandy instruction sheet shows you exactly how to put the dish together. It even has the recipe for the velvety cream sauce if you don't have any lingonberry jam on hand (which, who does??).
If you can't quite make out the instructions with their iconic Ikea illustrations, here's the link to the recipe card. It's a basic 1:1 ground pork and beef recipe with some egg, breadcrumbs, and seasonings. 250 grams is about 8 ounces of ground meat, if you plan on getting these ingredients to try it out.
Instagram is already flooded with recent attempts to make this famous dish. Some of these plates look really great!
Made #ikeameatballs for lunch. The recipe is spot on! Kids approved, said these are the best meatballs they've ever had! Right, insulting and complimentary at the same time! https://news.yahoo.com/ikea-release-meatballs-recipe-make-during-lockdown-093820674.html #swedishmeatballs #meatballs #spaghettiandmeatballs #lunch #yummy
What else would you like to see a copycat recipe for? KFC's fried chicken? How about the brown bread and honey butter from Outback Steakhouse? If you're feeling really adventurous, you can even try the enormous Ikea cinnamon rolls.
