If you’ve been to Ikea, then you probably have had their Swedish meatballs. At least, that’s where I had them for the first time, and I loved them. So I made a keto friendly version of them. Absolutely delicious!

INGREDIENTS (2-3 portions)

For the meatballs:

For the sauce:


  1. Start by seasoning the ground meat and roll into small balls.
  2. In a large pan or skillet, melt the butter and fry the meatballs until they are golden brown on medium to high heat. Then take them out of the pan and put them on a plate.
  3. Add the cut onion and minced garlic to the same pan you just fried the meatballs in and add the bone broth, let simmer on high heat for a few minutes.
  4. Lower the heat and add the heavy cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  5. Let simmer until the sauce thickens. If you’d like a more thicker consistency, you can add 1 tsp of lupin flour.
  6. Add in the meatballs to the sauce and let simmer for another 2-3 minutes.
  7. Serve with mashed cauliflower.
