Baked Swedish Meatballs

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Maureen in MA

This recipe is from my Seaward Inn Cookbook. My husband loves it so much that I am putting it on-line to reference while travelling. I serve it with egg noodles. The Seaward Inn is a lovely place in Rockport, MA, that we visited each summer while the Campbell family owned it. Great food and ambience!

Nice mild-flavored meatball. I baked them and they came out juicy and tender. Served with egg noodles as a nice Sunday dinner. Made for Spring PAC 2014.
