      One word....COMFORT! We all really enjoyed these over rice the other night for dinner. A real winner! I did cut down the recipe size for a family of 6. Followed the recipe except omitted green peppers as I didn't have any so doubled the celery. One other note - I cook my bacon in the oven on a cookie sheet. So...instead of frying the meatballs in the bacon fat - I drained most of the bacon fat off the cookie sheet and placed the raw meatballs on it. I baked them at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Then I put them in the crockpot. Thanks for sharing! I think this is my new favorite Swedish Meatball recipe! Made for the October 2009 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
