Swedish Meatballs

This was a spur of the moment meal, which isn't like me! I am a very "plan the meals for the week" type wife, which usually works great for us. However, since we are leaving in one week, I wanted to use what we had, and this is what we ended up with. I absolutley loved it! I would definitely recommend serving it over noodles, although it can be served on rice or potatoes. I feel like it would be much too heavy of a meal the alternative ways. The meatballs are SOOO flavorful, and the sauce makes this meal a creamy delight.

From: Me and various recipes off the internet!


1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef

1 egg

1/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup bread crumbs

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

3/4 tablespoon dry mustard

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 clove minced garlic

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon pepper



2 cans Cream of Mushroom soup

1 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup milk

Mix all meatball ingredients together. Roll into small balls and place on cookie sheet. Broil for 10 minutes or until cooked through. In a medium bowl mix sauce ingredients together. Place meatballs in a baking dish and cover with sauce. Bake at 325 for 25-35 minutes or until sacue warm and bubbling.

Serve over noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes.

I'm an actual swede and the only ingredients that looks right are meat and breadcrumbs.the other things do not belong in a Swedish meatball. For authentic Swedish meatballs you mix ground pork and beef, milk, breadcrumbs, egg, salt, pepper, allspice and chopped onion. The gravy is a cream sauce made from flour, milk, heavy cream, soysauce and salt :)
