IKEA-Inspired Swedish Meatballs
I'm pretty sure that there's a lot of us out there who love those Swedish meatballs at IKEA. Those meatballs, with the cream gravy and cranberry sauce on the side are just delicious. So last night, I gave a try at making IKEA-inspired Swedish meatballs with the cream gravy sauce. Instead of fries, I opted to make mash potatoes and serve with salad. As for the cranberry sauce, well, I took a quick shortcut by buying a small jar of mix berry conserve. The jam tasted alright, although it was a bit too sweet for my liking, but it did give that berry-sweetness combination to the meatballs and gravy. The overall combo: pretty close to the ones in IKEA I think! :)
