Product details

Served with mashed potatoes, cream sauce and lingonberry jam, HUVUDROLL meatballs are as Swedish as it gets. Every year, they are eaten and loved by millions of people around the world.

A tasteful icon from IKEA since 1985. Gently seasoned to enhance the meat flavour and are great to enjoy with traditional condiments or in new combinations.

Meatballs should taste like meat. That’s why we’ve seasoned the beef and pork gently with only a few ingredients, every one of them enhancing the meat flavour even more.

Easily prepared from frozen in minutes. In the oven, in the microwave or on the stove.

Easily portioned. Prepare the amount needed, leave the rest in the freezer.

Just as tasty warm as they are cold, e.g. halved as a sandwich topping.

    MeatballsVerified ReviewerI am extremely disappointed to learn that the meatballs are no longer gluten free like they use to be. In my opinion this is a big step backwards, as gluten free is a dietary requirement and not a health choice.1

    A tasty icon

    Millions enjoy IKEA meatballs every year and some admirers report travelling for hours just to order it at an IKEA restaurant. But, the IKEA meatballs as we know them were created as a solution to a tough challenge back in 1985 – failing restaurants.

    “Back then, guests in our restaurants were not served in a smooth and quick way and the quality was uneven,” explains Severin Sjöstedt, a Swedish chef who was asked to help out because of his passion for food and traditional Swedish cooking. “It was a serious problem because as Ingvar Kamprad, IKEA founder, put it: ‘It is tough to do business with hungry stomachs’”.

    Heated arguments

    Severin threw himself into the job of creating the perfect meatball recipe, a challenge that involved long and passionate discussions with his team and Ingvar Kamprad. Even within Sweden, opinions vary greatly on how a meatball should taste. Between Ingvar hailing from the south, and Severin a couple of dialects north, there were deeply rooted disagreements about what a real Swedish meatball should taste like.

    Cold facts

    Over the course of 10 months, Severin hardly left the kitchen. He was totally engulfed and put his heart and soul into finding the right recipe. He not only had to create a meatball that tasted good, he had to create one that could be made in batches of more than 300 kg each.

    More than 1 billion sold every year

    Nearly a year after the project started, IKEA restaurants began serving the IKEA version of Swedish meatballs. Each time a new IKEA store opened, Severin could see thousands of people lining up to be served. “It warms my heart to know I had a small piece of doing something tasty for a lot of people. The meatball embodies so much of the IKEA culture: it’s convenient, it’s Swedish, and it’s for the many. And after so many years, it’s still on the menu at every IKEA store in the world.”

    With a taste of Sweden

    If Sweden were a taste, it would taste like HUVUDROLL meatballs. Since we launched our meatballs in 1985, they are eaten and loved every year by millions of people everywhere. To enhance the meat flavour, they are gently seasoned. Either serve them classically with mashed potatoes, cream sauce and lingonberry jam, a dish with both harmony and flavour contrasts – or choose new, more unexpected combinations. Regardless of how they’re enjoyed, our meatballs are always a tasty icon!
