Easy Appetizer Meatballs - that is like a Swedish meatball or stroganoff meatball. I make these instead of the BBQ style and are always a hit at parties.

Loved this! Did make a few slight changes. Used low sodium brown gravy and just 1 can of cream of mushroom soup. Added 2 pinches of oregano, 2 pinches of garlic powder and a pinch of black pepper. Still had LOTS of sauce if just serving as appetizers. Tasted similar to those fave meatballs at Ikea.
