Swedish Meatballs - delicious !


What a good looking and tasty plateful Anne Aobadia prepared and cooked here. I have friends who quite regularly shop at IKEA and they always tell me, 'we just have to have some of their meatballs', can't say I've ever tasted them ... but these shown here, yum! I could definitely tuck in to this plateful ...

If you fancy giving them a try, here is what you will need:
Ingredients
Serves Four
9g carb per serving
Meatballs
½ yellow (white) onion
1 lb / 450 g ground (minced) beef, or half and half mix of ground beef and pork
4 oz. / 110 g cream cheese
1 egg
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch pepper
1 pinch ground allspice
3 tablespoons butter
Cream Sauce
1¼ cups /300 ml heavy (double) whipping cream
2 oz. /55 g cream cheese
1 tablespoon tamari soy sauce (optional)
salt and pepper
Cauliflower and lingonberries/cranberries
1 lb /450 g cauliflower

Please find recipe instructions at Diet Doctor site here

Did you know that lingonberries are a staple in Scandinavian cuisine. They grow in forested areas, and the taste is similar to cranberries, but not as bitter!

Yo también suelo hacer albóndigas caseras pero ala carne picada le añado jamón picado, perjil, ajo, sal y pimienta. Despues de freirlas hago una salsa de cebolla, tomate frito, le añado vino de Montilla y cuando hierve sumerjo las albóndigas en ellas dejándolas cocer unos minutos

I prefer to go to Ikea and eat them there! Faster, easier... : )

I do not believe I have ever eaten longberries. I will look for them.

These look great. The ones they serve at IKEA are not bad, but for me a trifle under seasoned. Have a great weekend, hugs, Valerie

I've never had the meatballs in Ikea but I know people rave about them. This dish looks delicious.

We do make meatballs occasionally....no cream cheese in ours.

With thanks to google translation, this is what the words read,

'I also usually make homemade meatballs but wing mince add you chopped ham, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper. After FRY, I make a sauce of onion, tomato sauce, add wine of Montilla and when it boils dive meatballs in them leaving them to cook for a few minutes'

Many thanks for your tips and comment, always appreciated.

Thanks to ALL who take time to comment, both here and on our other posts.
It's always good to receive, read and share them.

All the best Jan

I'm not sure if I've ever made meatballs Jan, an Italian friend of mine made the yummiest meatballs ever and I couldn't hope to top that ☺ Happy weekend.

These look fabulous. Will save a trip to Ikea and eat healthier. Thanks!

Cheryl mylittlepieceofengland said...

Very tasty, sauce sounds good too xx

Christine said...

Love IKEA meatballs, suspect it's that delicious cream sauce they use.

William Kendall said...

My mother occasionally made meatballs in the Swedish way. They were good!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

These sound good. My version always contain nutmeg, but allspice would work just as well, I'm sure.

Adam said...

Sounds like something my wife would like

Mary Kirkland said...

That sounds really good.

I make meatballs for himself from time to time, but like Delores, cream cheese would never occur to me as an addition.

Tom said...

...the Cauliflower and cranberries also look good.

That looks delicious.

I am a vegetarian now, but I never tried the IKEA Swedish meatballs when I still ate meat- though I heard they were/are fantastic. Your recipe does sound very tasty. :)

This is so good!

I used to love the Ikea meatballs, but after a few years of eating a healthier diet, one day I bought them again and they just weren't the same...they tasted a bit "plasticky"! So, homemade is the way to go! Thanks for the recipe Jan.

The cauliflower and cranberries look delicious!

Barbara Fisher said...

I don’t think I’ve had lingonberries but they and this plate of food certainly look tasty.

My son loves lingonberries. We planted two bushes this year. Crossing our fingers all goes well with them surviving in Wisconsin.
I pinned your recipe.

Sounds so good Jan! Big Hugs!

I've made many types of meatballs over the years but I've never seen a recipe with cream cheese in before.
Thanks for this one.
