IKEA Swedish Meatballs

Easy dinner.

What you need to buy from the IKEA food section:

1 pack of meatballs. Serves 6 gluttons. I assume there are 60 balls in the pack. The ones in Singapore are made of beef and pork I think.

A jar of MUST-HAVE Lingonberry jam. Condiments to the entire meal.

A packet of the sauce powder.

Whipping cream. Or cream for cooking/whipping. Bought mine from Giant.

Potatoes. Peeled and boiled, and halved.


1. Heat the meatballs in a single layer on a baking tray. Bake the frozen balls directly in a preheated oven at about 170 degrees Celsius for 15-20 minutes.

2. Make the gravy by boiling 280ml of water, then pour in 70ml of cream. Empty the packet of gravy powder and stir while boiling. The powder clumped a bit so I had to 'press' the clumps against the pot to dissolve them completely. One packet serves 4.

3. Serve ten meatballs per pax on a plate, pour gravy generously on top, along with 2 halved boiled potatoes, and 3 spoonfuls of Lingonberry jam at the side.

Easy peasy!
