kottbullar.jpgThis authentic recipe of Swedish meatball serves about 4 people.

1 pound (500g) ground beef and ground pork (0.5 pound of each)

milk

breadcrumbs

small yellow onion

salt and pepper

(1 clove of garlic, optional)

put about 2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs in a bowl and let in soak in milk for a few minutes. Mix in salt and pepper and finely chopped onion and garlic. Mix in the ground meat in the mix and roll into small balls. It is easier to roll if you wet your hands in cold water from time to time. Fry the meatballs, shifting them often so they don’t stick. Serve with boiled or mashed potatoes, lingonberry jam, and maybe a sauce made of cream and what is left in the pan after frying the meatballs.
