I received a Through the Country Door catalog yesterday in the mail. I looked through it to get some decorating and craft ideas. I did find a few of those but the catalog had something interesting in it. Recipes! They all looked delicious. I decided to try the Swedish meatballs. They were great!!! So, I Decided to share the recipe with you.
Now, this isn’t going to be as interesting as I hoped. I forgot to take pictures through the whole process. This is only the second cooking post I have done so, please forgive me and I will try to get better at this.
Easy Swedish Meatballs
3 slices of bread, crumbled 1/4 tsp nutmeg 1 Tbsp minced onion 1/4 tsp milk 1 1/2 tsp salt 1 lb ground beef 1/4 tsp pepper 1/2 stick of butter or margarine (I used cooking spray instead of butter)
Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl; let stand for 10 minutes. Mix in meat. Form into 1 1/2 inch balls; brown in a large skillet. Remove meatballs with a slotted spoon and place them in a 10″ baking dish.
2 tsp. meat loaf seasoning mix 2 Tbsp. flour 1 can condensed beef broth 1 cup sour cream
Blend seasoning mix, flour and drippings in skillet. Cook until bubbly. Stir in broth and sour cream. Boil 1 minute.
Pour over meatballs.
Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.
I served mine over wide noodles. For the side dish I had home-grown green beans. Yummy!!!
I didn’t have the meatball seasoning so, I just left it out. My Man still thought they were good.
One change I would make it to cook the meatballs until done and save a couple of tablespoons of drippings to make they sauce. I thought the gravy was too greasy and had to spoon some out.
