Tomorrow is National Meatball Day, my friends. And for this special holiday, IKEA is celebrating by offering a whole platter of meatball-centric deals and festivities across the country.

What’s on the menu? On March 9, all IKEA restaurants will exclusively serve its full range of meatballs, from its classic Swedish version to the veggie, salmon, and even chicken varieties for the occasion. Each store will have free samples of all IKEA meatballs throughout the day, and if you choose to dine in, you have the option to build a meatball plate with your choice of meatballs, plus a soup or salad, and a drink. If you’re an official IKEA Family Member, you’ll get $1 off the Swedish meatball plate.

After you reach your meatball lunch or dinner quota, you’ll still be able to grab three bags of frozen meatballs for $19.99 and take advantage of $5 off $25 worth of anything in the Swedish Food Market. Depending on location, your nearest IKEA might also be celebrating the day with other special offers and activities.

However, if for some reason you can’t make it to IKEA tomorrow for this special meatball appreciation event (seriously though, the chicken meatballs are only back for one day), here's a whole pile of meatball recipes you can make for your own private Meatball Day celebration.

What's your favorite meatball? Let us know below!
