Typically classical Swedish cooking includes lots of seafood, herring in
particular; open faced sandwiches; and Swedish meatballs, a smцrgеsbord
favorite: Swedish meatballs (kцttbullar).
If you equate Swedish food with smorgasbord, meatballs and dill, think again! Although these are great delights, you’ll enjoy a wide range of tasty, fresh-cooked food in Sweden. However, for those who prefer the authentic taste of Sweden, here’s my favourite recipe:-
1lb of minced beef
onion – finely chopped
1 cup of soft breadcrumbs or oats
Milk (about 1/2 decilitre)
Soak oats or breadcrumbs in milk for 1/2 hour
Add mince and mix until smooth and well blended together
Add onion – mix well
Finally add egg and salt and pepper
Roll into little balls and fry in margarine for about 10 minutes
Served kottbullar with freshly mashed potato (potatismos) and a salad. Enjoy!
Many thanks to Ulla who shared this genuine Swedish recipe with our family.
