A strange mix of ingredients but it tastes good.

Top Review by CarrolJ

The scent of these meatballs drove all of us crazy. When I stirred them to take a photo my DGD's and I sneaked a lick. Lucious. We are eating these over steamed rice which gives a sort of sweet and sour taste. I will definitely make these again. They taste nothing like traditional Swedish Meatballs, but are just as tasty! I forgot to mention that I used about 1/2 of the fresh garlic. I don't like a lot of it. The amount tasted perfect for me. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
