Great Swedish cooking and Farmors kottbullar!
Sweden is a great region, and Swedish food is a great ethnic food. At its best, Swedish food is excellent, largely meat-, fish- and potato-based, but varied and generally tasty and filling. Typically classical Swedish cooking includes lots of seafood, herring in particular; open faced sandwiches; and Swedish meatballs, a smörgåsbord favorite: Swedish meatballs (köttbullar). 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:- Farmors Köttbullar 1lb of minced beef onion - finely chopped 1 cup of soft breadcrumbs or oats 1 egg 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.
