SwedeDISH Food Truck – Swedish Meatballs – Photo of the Day

I went to the Food Truck Bazaar in Oviedo this past Sunday and finally was able to order the Swedish Meatballs from the SwedeDISH Food Truck. I lucked out by getting to the event early and was able to order this typically sold out dish. A must when trying to get your favorite food from a food truck at an event, arrive early to beat the lines. The monthly Oviedo Food Truck Bazaar is in a new location and was coordinated well by the TheDailyCity.com, with signs that were easy to spot from the street, directing attendees into the Lowe’s parking lot. The event was a success and I was happy to finally get my plate of SwedeDISH meatballs, a dish I missed out on during my first visit.

Swedish MeatballsHomemade Swedish lean ground beef meatballs with mashed potatoes, cream sauce, pickled gherkins & lingonberry jam (Svenska kottbullar med potatismos, inlagd gurka och lingonsylt) “Swedish meatballs are a traditional Scandinavian food.
They first appeared in a Swedish cookbook in 1754”

The meatballs were tender and flavorful, made in a comfort food style. The cream sauce was savory and gently seasoned, and the mashed potatoes were soft and hearty. The lingonberry jam paired well with the meatballs to give it a punch of sweetness and tartness, while the pickled gherkins added an acidic note to cut the richness of this savory dish. A hearty and filling meal for one person, or a very easy dish to share, I enjoyed each bite. So many ways to enjoy the flavors by eating each component individually or pairing one or more items. I can see why this dish usually sells out and I will be back for more.
