SWEDISH MEATBALLS!
HURRAY! I just discovered another IKEA secret: They have a great "Swedish Speciality" section in their deli that has decent Swedish food imports. My favorite were the frozen meatballs- they're easy and fast and taste delicious with potatoes and cream sauce. I left out the lingonberry marmalade, but they were great with a beer! Can any of you lovely Swedes tell me what this dish is called in Swedish?

Brave girl, I have been too scared to try any of the Ikea food, but if you say it is good, maybe I will have to check it out.

I love Ikeas meatballs! But you should really try the lingonberry jam next time too!

In Swedish, this dish is called Kottbullar med potatis. (there is supposed to be two dots over the o in kottbullar but I'm writing from Amsterdam so I don't have any swedish letters right now) The sauce is called brunsas (again, a dot over the a).

KÖTTBULLAR (pluralis)
KÖTTBULLE (singularis)

BULLE is a cute word.

you can also try pannbiff it´s sort of a köttbulle but flat and we serve it with potatoes and fried onion and again this lingonsylt.
