Swedish Meatballs and the Most Under Appreciated Celebrity Chef Ever

Posted on

Whenever there’s a discussion about the history of celebrity chef pop culture, one name is invariably left out, and this Swedish Meatballs recipe served as a reminder of that sad fact. How anyone can talk about the pioneers of food television without including the Swedish Chef from the Muppets is beyond me.

Do NOT forget the Lingonberry jam!


Ingredients for 4 large portions:
For the meatballs:
2 tbsp butter
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup milk
2 large eggs
1/3 cup plain bread crumbs
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
pinch of cayenne
1 pound ground chuck

*Note: you can always cook a little piece to taste for salt, and adjust from there.

2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp  all-purpose flour
3 1/4 cups beef broth
