This is very easy to double and well accepted by all ages. Came from a cookbook 20 yrs ago but I have modified it somewhat.

It tastes like a swedish meatball recipe that I have had before. It is pretty good but probably not something I'll make often.

I didn't rate this yet cause I made a change in it that I didn't like. Whatever you do, DON'T substitute anything for the ketchup in this recipe....I used steak sauce instead, cause I was out of ketchup and it tasted terrible! I had to really work with this dish and doctor it up to get the taste right. Just a warning not to make the mistake I did!
