Do you know what we miss about life before lockdown? IKEA.
Never again will we take for granted browsing its aisles for home decor inspo, buying plants, jars, and knick knacks we really don't need and - of course - the oh, so iconic meatballs.
IKEA stores first opened in 1943, but its Swedish meatballs (founded 42 years later) have gradually become the most cult part of the whole experience - so much so that it even threw a meatball laden Christmas dinner this year that guests could attend.
And guess what? Now you can make them yourself at home, as - in the absence of IKEA trips - the store has released its top secret recipe to make everyone's isolation a little bit tastier. Yaaas!
The best part is the recipe has just six steps, and you only need eight ingredients to make the meatballs (plus another eight if you're going to attempt the Swedish cream sauce).
Laying out the recipe like a flatpack furniture guide, IKEA has illustrated each step of the cooking process to help us along the way.
(Although, we're hoping it's a little easier than trying to put one of their shelves together...)
The recipe makes between 16 and 20 meatballs, which is enough to serve four people.
Here it is below, so you can try it for yourselves:
INGREDIENTS - MEATBALLS

We know what we're having for dinner!
