Quarantine Cooking Series: Ikea Meatballs

Everybody's favorite part about going to Ikea is the delicious and economical Swedish meatball plate, right??  Wes found the recipe online somehow (and yes, it actually looks like their signature furniture building instructions) and we knew that this was something we needed to attempt.  These delicious balls are a mixture of ground beef and pork, and the surprising cream sauce ingredient was soy sauce.  We modified it just a touch by adding chopped parsley.  We also crumbled the lonely chunk of white bread stashed in the back of the fridge that Wes made last week for the bread crumbs.  While we had no lingonberry jam, we found that it was not necessary to creating the authentic Ikea experience.  The balls themselves were 100% just as awesome as the Ikea ones, if not better because they were freshly made at home.  So, this recipe is not a knockoff--it's the real deal!
