Swedish Meatballs

Swedish Meatballs

If you want to use Courtney’s amazing meatball recipe to make Swedish Meatballs here’s how:

1.  Add 1/4 tsp ground all-spice to your meatball mix and make sure half of your ground meat is ground pork.

2.  If you want to freeze a batch you’ll want to freeze them raw.  (You can freeze them just like Courtney mentioned on the cookie sheet, and once frozen, throw them in a freezer baggie.)  You need the drippings for this recipe.

3.  When your ready to cook, brown the meatballs (fresh or frozen) in a couple of tablespoons of butter on medium heat.

4.  Move the meatballs to a plate once they’re cooked all the way through and use the drippings to make a rue {add about 3 or 4 T of flour and stir into the drippings until smooth.}

5.  Add 2 cups cream or milk to the pan and stir together.  It should thicken up once the mixture reaches a boil.  Add salt and white pepper to taste.

6.  Add the meatballs to the gravy and serve over rice or mashed potatoes! 


7.  Enjoy the meatballs…Swedish style! {To be really authentic you might want to grab some ligonberry jam too…just like IKEA!}  😉
