This is yet another recipe I found on the net when I was searching for recipes from Norway. This makes 120 meatballs that can be made ahead and frozen. They are great served either as an appetizer or as a main dish for Christmas. Serve these with mashed potatoes, steamed carrots and lefse.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350*.
  2. Combine meat, onions, juice, spices, salt, pepper, eggs, half and half, and cracker meal. Knead by hand for 5 minutes or more to combine spices into meat. Lightly grease or spray baking pans. Form small, round meatballs; dipping hands into cold water to shape smooth. Bake 15 minutes. Can be frozen at this point. Place meatballs in large kettle; add bouillon, meat drippings from baking pan and water to cover. Stir in Kitchen Bouquet. Heat to boiling; reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour. Remove meatballs. Thicken gravy with flour to desired consistency.
  3. Note: Servings will be based on how you serve them. I think about 10-12 servings as a main dish or more if served as an appetizer.
