MEATBALLS-2 - A Swedish national dish
This is a traditional Swedish recipe. It is served at the
smorgasbord and also at Christmas in Swedish homes (as one
of many dishes). It can also be served with brown sauce,
potatoes and lingonberry jam at lunch or dinner. Kids love
the meatballs with pasta.
INGREDIENTS (Serves 4)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
1 small onion
1 lb ground meat (mixture of beef and pork)
salt and pepper
(1) Mix bread crumbs and milk. Let it swell for about
(2) Mince the onion and fry it until soft.
(3) Mix all the ingredients.
(4) Form into small balls with your hands. This is
easier to do with wet hands. The size of the
balls can vary a little, but a cherry is too small
and a ping-pong ball is too big.
(5) Fry the balls in butter in a frying pan (medium
hot) for about 5 minutes. Turn them around to get
them fried on all sides. The balls get dark brown.
It's a little bit tricky to get the balls round. Don't put
all the meatballs in the frying pan at once.
Difficulty: moderate. Time: 30-40 minutes. Precision:
measure the ingredients.
