How To Perfectly Recreate IKEA’s Swedish Meatballs At Home [WATCH]

We all go to IKEA for two very specific reasons: to purchase some new, easy-to-assemble furniture, and to eat some of their world-famous Swedish meatballs. All of their food courts have these little morsels of pure bliss, coated in a creamy brown sauce, served with bright lingonberry jam, and creamy mashed potatoes for a meal that beats any other one you can find in a grocery store food court.

While everybody purchases bags of these meatballs and jars of lingonberry jam to recreate the experience at home, we all know that food is best when fresh-made. If you’re looking for a dope recipe to recreate IKEA’s signature food from scratch, look no further than YouTube channel SORTEDfood.

The boys at SORTED came up with a Swedish meatball recipe that’ll make you think you’re sitting in an IKEA food court while at your dining room table. While they did throw in a few twists, like adding some fresh herbs and mixing lingonberry jam into the sauce, the whole plate of meatballs, sauce, jam, and mashed potatoes that the channel comes up with looks almost exactly like IKEA’s version.

Considering just how addictive IKEA’s meatballs can be, that’s some pretty high praise.

Alcoholic Frozen Butterbeer Is The Ultimate Boozy Harry Potter Dessert

When you go to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios, one item you’re likely going to purchase is the famous Butterbeer. Available warm, cold, or frozen, this butterscotch soda with a creamy topping is beloved by tons of park attendees.

However, there’s always been one thing missing from Butterbeer that would make it truly live up to its name: alcohol. Of course, Universal likely wouldn’t sell that in its theme parks, but you can always make your own version at home.

If you’re looking for a good starting point for a boozy Butterbeer, look no further than this video from YouTube channel SORTEDfood. They’ve taken the quintessential cream soda delight from Universal and punched it up with a few additions. SORTED did their research in the actual books, but also chose to give their Butterbeer the alcoholic twist we’ve all been missing from the theme park version.

SORTED’s version is also frozen, so it’s a great way to cool down if you host a Harry Potter-themed get-together over the summer. A warning, though, drinking this Butterbeer may require a pants-stretching spell.
