We enjoyed these, tho I have to say that I've never had swedish meatballs, so I have nothing to compare them too. I'd be careful with the stock and bouillon cube; mine seemed a little salty. I also had a bit of a problem, as my sauce didn't want to thicken. I just added a tsp. of cornstarch to some of the hot sauce (stirring and mixing well) and added it back in to the rest of the sauce. That did the trick! These went together relatively easy, and I enjoyed the flavor/tasting experience. Thanks for sharing, Elainemay. Made for ZWT.
