In Sweden köttbullar (meatballs) are made with ground
beef or a mix of ground beef and pork, mixed with breadcrumbs soaked in milk and
finely chopped (fried) onions, some broth, and occasionally cream.
meatballs served Swedish style with mashed potatoes, brown-sauce,
lingonberry-jam and pickled gherkins.
They are seasoned with white pepper or allspice and salt.
Swedish meatballs are traditionally served with gravy, boiled potatoes,
lingonberry jam, and sometimes fresh pickled cucumber.
In the United States, there are a number of variations, based
on the assimilation of Swedes in the Midwest.
