Swedish Meatballs from Meatball Shop Cookbook


Swedish meatballs taste delicious, and they are easy to prepare as well. One thing that inspired me to cook Swedish meatballs is the meatball shop cookbook. Recently I received this cookbook from a friend of mine, and the recipe of the meatballs in it was so easy that I could not stop from trying this one. The result of the attempt was mouth-watering too, but as sometimes new adventures teach you a valuable lesson, this attempt of mine also taught me something, and that is to invest in a convenient meatball maker. To make my next attempt better than the first one, I have also bought a meatball maker. But we will talk about it later; first, let’s have a look at the mouth-watering recipe of Swedish meatballs.

Convenient Meatball Maker

To make the even and same size meatballs, you can invest in this tool. This meatball maker can make the work of rolling the meatballs and placing them on a preached baking dish or in pre-heated oil easy. To make the same sized meatballs, all you need to do is to place the mixture in the maker and drop some of its quantity in the oil.

The best part of this small kitchen gadget is that your hands don’t touch the mixture, so the balls remain hygienic, and you don’t need to wash your hands again and again. If, like me, you too prefer the deep-fried version of the meatballs, then keep you at a safe distance from the heat up the oil while making the meatballs.
