      This is a wonderful recipe! Moist meatballs, not difficult to make, and a delicious, smooth sauce. The Gjetost flavour is present but not overwhelming - a wonderful balance.

      I have had this recipe for years and it is always a huge hit, especially with our Norwegian Club. The key ingredient here is the Gjetost cheese. Any other cheese will make it another dish entirely. I find that Ski Queen brand is what is most available in the US. It is made from goat's milk and is a carmel color with a hint of sweetness to it. It has its own unique flavor, delightful as a thin slice served with sweet heart-shaped waffles as a dessert.

      I agree with Chef Susan, having had gjetost cheese this recipe would not be bland if made properly. What is chi-chi grocers? There are many Nordic shops online to get this cheese. At worst substitute another kind of goat cheese not a cows milk cheese for this recipe. Great recipe ! very norse! Thanks Bec!
