Easy Authentic Swedish Meatball Recipe


Food Recipe | Easy Authentic Swedish Meatball Recipe – I made this recipe tonight and my bf and I loved the meatballs. The only modifications I made to the recipe were the addition of a small amount of whole milk to the gravy and I used red currant preserves instead of lingo berry jam be I couldn’t find the latter locally. We fortunately have many meatballs left to enjoy in the future. These will be made again, probably at New Year’s and/or a Super bowl party. Highly recommended! Enjoy!
