While many people in quarantine are missing their favorite restaurant meals, IKEA fans may be dreaming about the day they can finally have Swedish meatballs again. The furniture chain's brick-and-mortar locations may be closed for now, but with the right ingredients, you can make its signature dish at home. As Food & Wine reports, IKEA has shared the recipe for its Swedish meatballs and sauce online.

The cooking instructions, which were posted to IKEA UK's Twitter page, read like one of the company's illustrated furniture assembly guides. The meatball itself is a basic mix of beef, pork, garlic, onion, egg, milk, and breadcrumbs, while the sauce contains oil, butter, flour, cream, soy sauce, Dijon mustard, and a mix of beef and vegetable stock.

After shaping and cooking the meatballs and putting together the sauce, you'll have a meal that transports you out of your kitchen and into the cafeteria of your favorite home goods store. IKEA recommends serving the meatballs with your preferred potato side dish.

The recipe, according to an announcement from IKEA, is intended to make cooking a little easier for customers stuck at home during the COVID-19 crisis. If you really want to make your living space feel like IKEA, we recommend rearranging it to be intentionally confusing before sitting down to dinner. Here are some more facts about the furniture chain.
