[STC00826] You might be excused for assuming that Swedish meatballs originated in Sweden; nevertheless, even Swedes acknowledge that Turkish cuisine is where the recipe for Swedish meatballs originated. In fact, the country‚Äôs official Twitter account posted in 2018 that ‘Swedish meatballs are actually based on a recipe King Charles XII brought home from Turkey in the early 18th century.’ They attribute this success to the Turkish dish known as “kofte,” which is made by mixing minced or ground beef, lamb, chicken, or hog with onions and a mixture of spices. Not only did King Charles XII bring back meatballs from Turkey with him, but he also introduced Sweden to stuffed cabbage and coffee. Today, Sweden is one of the countries that consumes the most coffee per capita in the world. However, the nation did add its own unique spin to the dish that they had named after themselves by pouring gravy over the meatballs before serving.
