The largest IKEA in the United States just opened in Los Angeles. It’s absolutely massive. They almost need to put in a trolley! This is about their iconic Swedish meatballs and the beauty of it is that you can buy them frozen after you buy your GRÖNKULLA, FLÄRDFULL, SMÖRBOLL and (I always buy) their paper napkins. I know a lot of people that do not live near an IKEA, so here is a recipe to make them yourself.

  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cook: 30 mins
  • Yields: 4 - 6 Servings



1Sauté the onion in oil until golden brown.

2Mash the potatoes and mix all the ingredients until meatball consistency.

3Roll the meat into 1-inch balls and arrange on a baking sheet sprayed with vegetable oil. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

4Preheat the oven to 400° F. Bake the meatballs until cooked through, about 20 minutes.
