My Mom’s Swedish Meatball Recipe Is Good Comfort Food
While a lot of Twin Ports area restaurants are open in some capacity for take-out or delivery, a lot of people are making more meals at home. I had a birthday last weekend and my dinner from mama was pushed to today. I requested one of my favorites that she makes, Swedish Meatballs. I figured I would share in case you are looking for new things to try for the family. Or, if social distancing has you down, fill that hole with this comfort meal.
Mama Danger's Swedish Meatballs:
With a fork, mash together 4 slices of bread and 2/3 Cup of milk. Add to that combination: 2.5lbs ground beef, 2 eggs, 1 medium onion chopped, 1 tsp All Spice, 1/2 tsp Nutmeg, and 2 tsp salt. Mix it all together forming the meatballs about 1.5-2 inches in size. Bake them at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. She uses a 9x13 pan and lines the meatballs right next to each other.
Next, boil 2 cups of water with 2 beef bouillon cubes, slowly add the cooked meatballs to that, cover, and simmer for 1 hour.
Remove the meatballs and set aside, strain the juice left, and set aside. In the final cooking pot, melt 1/4 cup of butter and add 1/4 cup of flower, then slowly add the set aside broth to the mixture while stirring and then add the meatballs. To that, add 1-2 tbsp of dill weed( I personally prefer 2 or a smidgen more). Remove from heat and add one cup of sour cream. Serve over wide egg noodles or rice.
I hope you enjoy!
