A trip to IKEA is not complete without a stop at their budget-friendly yet delicious cafeteria, amirite? The IKEA Swedish Meatballs have quite a fan base and for good reason — they’re delicious! Not only can you enjoy them piping hot from the cafeteria, but you can also purchase a frozen package to take home and enjoy later. With many IKEA stores temporarily closed, the chain recognizes that we might be missing those iconic meatballs. Luckily for us, they have now released the coveted recipe so we can make them in the comfort of our own home!
“We know that some people might be missing our meatballs, which is why we’ve released an at-home alternative which, using easily accessible ingredients, will help those looking for some inspiration in the kitchen,” says Lorena Lourido, IKEA’s country food manager in the UK and Ireland. “Staying at home can be hard, but we want to help make everyone’s lives that little bit easier and more enjoyable. Bon appétit or, smaklig måltid, as we say in Sweden!”
But wait it gets better. To make sure you get your IKEA fix, they even released the recipe with step-by-step illustrated instructions in a true IKEA style.
