Apparently, Sweden has admitted its iconic meatballs actually originate from Turkey.  Swedish meatballs are actually based on a recipe King Charles XII brought home from Turkey in the early 18th century. 
 
Swedish meatballs are traditionally served with mashed or boiled potatoes, but you can serve them with rice or noodles.
