Mom's Swedish Style Meatballs
105 mins (prep 45, cooking 60)
18 ingredients
30 servings
This is a recipe I remember my mother making for dinner parties when I was very young. I loved to sneak in and sample a few when she wasn't looking. Mom served this with rice as a main dish. This has a very different sauce from other Swedish meatball recipes I have since tasted -so I am not sure if these are authentically Swedish or not. I just know that they are rich and tasty and there were never any leftovers. I snagged this from Mom's recipe collection. This makes about 30 medium sized meatballs.
