This is another version of our family's Swedish Meatballs. I did make these a few months back. I cut the recipe in half and still had way too much meat mixture for only 3 people. I used the remaining meatballs for my Spaghetti dinner. There was about 20 meatballs left over. My 23 yr old son claimed it was the best Spaghetti & Meatballs I had ever made. The recipe is definitely for a larger group of people. If you're just cooking for 2 or 3 then you'll need to cut down the recipe alot more.

Pretty good stuff. I used homemade Italian bread crumbs and fresh ground Parmesan cheese for added zing.
