When I was a little girl I would get so excited when my mom would take the extra time to make meatballs to go with our spaghetti. It seriously always was sooo much better than just the typical meat sauce. Well that’s when my love for meatballs came about. I can honestly say meatballs are on my top five list of favorite food. That is why I am constantly looking for different ways to make meatballs. At the top of my list so far are our Italian Meatballs and our Sweet n’ Sour Meatballs they are both soooo tasty.
Well I wanted to make a meatball that would remind me of stroganoff. I just think the brown gravy and meat blend together so well. I didn’t have any mushrooms on hand to make meatball stroganoff, so I decided to come up with a Swedish meatball recipe. These Swedish Meatballs turned out tasting fabulous and were perfect over eggs noodles.
This Swedish meatball recipe is a great comfort food that will be a perfect meal during the winter months. I know that I will be making these meatballs many times this year. Enjoy!
