IKEA has shared the recipe for its iconic meatballs so people can recreate them at home during lockdown.

Here’s everything you need for the IKEA meatballs.


- 500g beef mince
- 250g pork mince
- 1x finely chopped onion
- 1x crushed garlic clove
- 100g breadcrumbs
- 1x egg
- 5x tablespoons of whole milk
- a generous dash of salt and pepper

And here’s the simple method:

- Combine the beef and pork mince and mix together in a bowl using your fingers. Break up any lumps, before adding in the onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, egg and mixing together.
- Add in the milk, along with salt and pepper and mix in.
- Shape into small, round balls and place on a clean plate. When all of the mix is used up, cover the plate and store in the fridge for two hours.
- After two hours, heat some oil on medium heat in a frying pan, and once hot, chuck in the meatballs.
- Cook until browned.
- Once browned, pop the meatballs in an ovenproof dish and cook through for a further 30 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees, or 160 degrees if you have a fan oven.
