The 6th of June is the national day of Sweden and to celebrate it we would like to share with you the recipe of the national dish of Sweden… the famous Swedish meatballs! Meatballs truly are a classic Swedish dish to serve either as an everyday meal or as a more fancy dinner option. Meatballs are served with different side dishes but the best way (according to Swedes!) is to serve them with mashed potatoes, lingonberry jam, gravy and pickled cucumbers. Meatballs were introduced in Sweden in the 1700s but became worldwide famous as a Swedish favorite through the Swedish furniture company IKEA. This recipe was created by the newly appointed IngredientMatcher’s Country Chef for Sweden: ReceptSkaparna.
