Swedish Meatballs is a lovely simple recipe that works for any day of the week and in fact anytime of the day. They only take minutes to make but our ingredients can feed 6 people easily as a main dish. I like to use a mixture of pork and beef mince in the Swedish Meatballs as it increases and deepens the flavours. Add a pinch of chilli for an extra kick. This is so easy to produce that even I can do it and that’s saying something. One thing that is guaranteed is that you will have a house of happy diners. Adding the nutmeg and the dill adds a subtle flavour that takes these meatballs to a different level. I make the meatballs in advance and place them in the fridge. This gives them a chance to really absorb the ingredients.

A lovely recipe that works for anyday of the week. I always try and use a lean pork and or mince for the best flavour.
