For the contents of the frying pan in this picture, you need:250 grams (approx 1/2 lb) ground beef4 tablespoons breadcrumbs, or ground oats, or mashed, cold, boiled potatoes...1 tablespoon potato starch - I have noticed you can't always get this outside of Sweden, but you will be fine without it as well inchallah A little milk or water to soak the breadcrumbssaltpeppera few drops tabasco, or a little chilli powder - or nothing if you don't want it.
An egg, or just the yoke if you feel it will be too much liquid

Start by mixing breadcrumbs, potato starch and liquid. Set aside and let swell for about 10 minutes. Then, add seasoning, meat and egg. Rinse your hands with cold water (to avoid the mixture sticking to your hands) and roll small balls, place them on a cutting board that you also rinsed with water. This will allow you to slaide all the meatballs into the pan at once by simply tipping the cutting board - and do make sure you don't get too much water on it!Fry - you can do this in a non-stick pan but I find you get the best result if using a cast-iron skillet and a little butter. The meatballs don't absorb a lot of grease so you needn't be worried.Traditionally you would serve these with some slowly fried onion rings, lingonberry (a tart, red berry) jam and boiled potatoes. I like to make a mash, with herbs in it. Also I like to serve some Dijon mustard mixed with Turkish yoghurt as a sauce. Some peas or other vegetables are nice too.
