Swedish Meatballs

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Nana Lee

Found these on another site that was featuring Scandinavian foods. I made these and added some sauteed mushroom pieces to the sauce, and served this as a main dish over rice. They can also be served as an appetizer in a chafing dish to keep warm. Provide toothpicks for spearing them. My neighbor used to have a Cmas Eve openhouse and served these. She suffered a stroke and has become incapacitated so her recipe is lost. These, if I close my eyes, taste just like hers! So I dedicate this recipe to Joyce....a very dear friend.

These were OK. I usually use the seasoned packets from the store, but didn't have one, so tried this instead. I felt it was kinda bland--could use more seasonings, I just don't know what.
