A genuine, and one of the most quoted Swedish recipes for meatballs. With a few variations, it is found in almost every Swedish cookbook. This variety of meatballs is always served hot, with cream sauce and mashed potatoes, in contrary to the small ones served cold that one finds on the Smorgasbord. At Christmas, some Swedes like a little "Christmas touch" and add a little allspice and ginger. If you're really ambitious, you'll buy whole meat and grind it yourself. It makes a great difference!
