"If you like Swedish meatballs from Ikea, you’re going to love these. I grew up in Sweden and have made this recipe my entire life. It’s quite simple and only requires a handful of ingredients. The classic way to serve them is with mashed potato and lingonberries. If I'm short on time, I'll also eat them with Macaroni. Check out our Kitchen Stories instagram channel to find the matching reel to the recipe, where I show you how to make the Swedish meatballs from my childhood!"
