    Linda's Busy Kitchen's Note:

    My grandmother's mother and father were both off the boat from Sweden in the late 1800's. This is my grandmother's recipe from her mother, so if your looking for a REAL Swedish Meatball recipe, here it is, straight from the home land! I had this recipe many times growning up, as my mom loved to cook it for us... This is GREAT served over cooked buttered noodles, as a main dish with veggies, or over potatoes. I LOVE IT both ways!

      These meatballs were simple and easy to prepare. The flavors were mild but delicious. We had alongside buttered noodles and poured some of the gravy over the noodles and it was awesome! Thanks to you for sharing this recipe!
