I got this recipe from my mother (like most of my good ones), and I changed it a little to suit us.

These were awesome!!!! Most Sweedish meatball recpies have a bunch of spices in them that I don't care for. These were absolutely perfect. We practically inhaled them. Served them with egg noodles. Delicious. Thanks for this great recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix egg and milk, then add breadcrumbs, onion, parsley and pepper. Mix with the ground meats and shape into balls (I get around 20 or so).
  2. Cook meatballs in a pan 1/2 at a time over medium heat until browned evenly on all sides (about 10 minutes).
  3. Replace all meatballs into a deep skillet or dutch oven type pot. Add flour, bullion and about 1 1/2 cups of the milk, stirring over medium low heat, adding the remaining milk gradually, about 1/2 cup at a time, as the sauce begins to thicken.
  4. Cook until all the milk is incorporated and sauce is thickened. Serve over hot noodles.
