Svenska köttbullar (Swedish Meatballs)

After a big game with his Aussie friends, the Swedish Chef decided to take a break and ambush the kitchen. Nothing beats a nice warm plate of Swedish meatballs.photos from home jan 2013 002 008

Svenska köttbullar or Swedish meatballs are made with ground beef and pork, butter, cream, bread crumbs, and other ingredients. I know they have good, real meat in Sweden. Should I ask The Swedish Chef if they make it with moose meat, reindeer, elk, venison, bison, veal or any other furry-haired animal bigger than five foot three? I guess not today or discussion will go to squirrels and rabbits which I couldn’t imagine being served on my plate.
