Reader's Recipe: Swedish Meatballs

Reader's Recipe: Swedish Meatballs

This week's reader's recipe comes from the Kitchen Goddess herself, Twinkle. These divine looking meatballs are served with potatoes and lingonberry jam. I personally love the way sweet and savory go together and can't wait to taste that combination.

To check out her recipe for authentic Scandinavian Meatballs (she lives there, this is as authentic as it gets folks!),

Recipe submitted by TeamSugar member Twinkle

Meatballs are a staple here in Scandinavia and today I decided to have a go at making them from scratch. They were delicious and so easy to make. My husband, the resident expert on Swedish meatballs, said my meatballs were even better than his mother's. :jawdrop:

1 pound (500 grams) ground meat
3 slices white bread
1/2 cup (1 1/2 dl) milk
1 egg
3/4 cup (2 dl) finely chopped leeks
Butter and oil for frying

Mix the egg and the milk in a bowl. Cut off the crust of the bread and place in the bowl so that the bread soaks up the liquid and gets mushy. Mix in the ground meat and the leek. Season with salt and pepper and let it rest for 10 minutes. With wet hands, make small balls of the mixture. Fry them in oil and butter for 10 minutes. Make sure that they are done by testing one.

Serve with any form of potatoes and some lingonberry jam.

Thanks for submitting this recipe Twinkle, I can't wait to give it a try!

Hmmm don't know yummers. I assume as long as it soaks up the liquid and gets all mushy you could use whatever bread you wanted.
