    I did that, too, when the line ups at IKEA were too long. I added some spices to ground beef and turkey to get the Swedish taste. They turn out even better than the frozen ones.

    These sound like a great idea for tonight! Mine may even find a few mushrooms in the sauce.

    A tip from a real Swede: Use 50% ground pork and 50% lean ground beef and you have the true Swedish meatball.

    I’m thinking they wouldn’t really be swedish if there nutmeg/allspice was optional? Of course, I’m soley basing this opinion on IKEA meatballs because I haven’t had any others! They look so good Julie! Super affordable too!

    Ha ha–did you notice those bags of Swedish meatballs at IKEA are made in the USA? Yours look so good!

    These sound great. I’ve always made meatballs with both an egg and breadcrumbs, so thanks for the tip.

    My MIL has a great recipe for swedish meatballs that has a teaspoon of instant coffee (I use instant expresso) and paprika added to the sauce. Makes them crazy good!

    Winnipeg is finally getting an IKEA at the end of this year and my kids were so happy at the news, mainly because of the meatballs! This recipe will make them very, very happy. Thanks Julie.

    This recipe has my mouth watering! I wonder if using ground turkey would be a passable substitution. Looks great!

    Good recipe but omit the allspice and the cranberry sauce.
