IKEA has released their famous Swedish meatballs recipe, so you can make the classic dish at home

Most of the country is now well into the second month of social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner (and in-between meals we have invented, because, why not) from the comfort of our own home. Seeing as the majority of restaurants are closed or offering a limited menu in a takeout-only capacity, some of our favorite dishes and comfort foods are unfortunately not available. Luckily, a few generous establishments — including the Cheesecake Factory and Disney Parks — have revealed some of their trademark recipes so that we can recreate these much-missed items in our own kitchen. Well, if you are a fan of IKEA’s trademark Swedish meatballs, then start preheating your oven — the home goods purveyor has finally released the recipe for their most famous dish.

On Monday, IKEA UK and Ireland, currently closed due to the pandemic, treated carnivores around the world with a recipe card with visual illustrations– similar looking to the assembly instructions for their furniture — detailing everything you need to cook the beloved balls.

“We know that some people might be missing our meatballs, which is why we’ve released an at-home alternative which, using easily accessible ingredients, will help those looking for some inspiration in the kitchen,” Lorena Lourido, the country food manager at IKEA UK and Ireland, said in a press release according to CNN. “Staying at home can be hard, but we want to help make everyone’s lives that little bit easier and more enjoyable.

“Bon appétit or, smaklig måltid, as we say in Sweden!”

Judging from the reaction on social media, the gesture is much-appreciated, as fans expressed their excitement.
