Swedish Meatballs (Authentic) With Two Gravies

Recipe by CABarbieQue

These meatballs are totally authentic (other than I have substituted an additional 1/2 lb of Pork for Veal as a personal preferance) and are always served on a Christmas buffet table. They are so delicious I make them year round and I always use the first sauce, but you can cheat and use the second (easier) sauce. I serve these over Egg Noodles with a big plate of green veg (sauteed Haricot Verts with Carmelized Shallot and Garlic or Roasted Asparagus). Yield depends on the size of your meatballs. I use a Pampered Chef Small Scoop and get about 50 or so.
