Swedish Meatball (Paprika) Burgers - Cooking Light

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by mikey ev

Not sure why they're called "Swedish Meatball" - they just taste like great, juicy burgers! We just made these in a skillet on med-high (5 mins per side) and they came out perfect! Cooking Light suggests to eat these on potato rolls or served over egg noodles and to top with 1 tablespoon of sour cream each. We had them on toasted rolls with a little cheese and spinach. Also, mine only made 5 servings (but I like thick burgers!).

These were so good and so tasty!! I didn't think they would be as delicious as they are with the vinegar and nutmeg, but it all melds together terrificly!! Very filling,too. We enjoyed these so much that we didn't even eat our fries!! (; Thank you so much- I will be making my burgers like this more often!!
