“I know there is already an "ikea swedish meatballs" recipe on here, but this one is right from the source :) This calls for "unsweetened rusk flour" which is obviously not available in the US. It literally translates to "toasted breadcrumbs" So I just use PLAIN breadcrumbs, I can't taste a difference in the meatballs. You could also toast up some panko in butter in a pan and out them in a baggie of some sort and crush them till their fine...but either way... I'm not sure of the "yield" here it depends how many meatballs you gove people to eat and how big the meatballs are made ;)”
