Swedish Meatballs


At some point Alex made us Swedish meatballs. These meatballs were so good and the sauce so delicious that I asked him to forward me the recipe. He didn't save the recipe so he sent me the recipe he thought he used. I knew the recipe was wrong because there was no sauce but I still made the recipe he sent me because it seemed easy enough and I had all the ingredients. That was one of the best decisions I made that day because this recipe was a huge hit with everyone. Cati had her serving for dinner and then ate half of Alex's dinner when he got home from work. This recipe is in the rotation now and I probably make it every other week. The first time I made it I served it with some cranberry sauce but the meatballs don't need any kind of sauce; they're that good on their own.

Swedish Meatballs
Source: Slightly adapted from LindaT on

1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon white sugar
3 tablespoons butter

Mix bread crumbs, water, and half-and-half in a large bowl; let stand for about 2 minutes.

Stir ground beef, ground pork, salt, pepper, and sugar into bread crumb mixture until thoroughly mixed. Shape mixture into about 30 small meatballs.

Melt butter in a skillet; add meatballs. Cook for about 5 minutes then turn over and continue cooking until fully cooked in the middle and no longer pink. Add next batch of meatballs if all of them didn't fit in the first batch.

Remove fron skillet, serve, and enjoy.
