The first in our 3-part series is a dish that a lot of people probably associate with Sweden: Swedish meatballs! These were so yummy, and although the recipe made a lot, we didn't have leftovers for very long!
500 g (1.1 lb) ground beef (or other meat of your choice)
1 dl (about 6 3/4 Tbsp) breadcrumbs
1 1/2 dl (about 2/3 cup) milk
1 1/2 tsk (about 1 1/2 tsp) salt
1 1/2 krm (about 1/4 tsp) pepper
2 msk (about 2 Tbsp) chopped onions, caramelized
- Combine milk and breadcrumbs. Let soak 10 minutes.
- Add salt and meat, mixing carefully.
- Add pepper, egg, and caramelized onions. Mix until well combined. Do not over-mix, or your meatballs may have a rubbery texture.
- Form small (1 1/2") balls from the meat mixture. Fry at a medium low heat.
