      Wonderful meat balls. These were enjoyed by all tonight. I used 2 lbs of meat as I had guests for dinner and wanted to be sure to have enough. Now there'll be a bit left over for dh's dinner tomorrow night. Made for ZWT9 Soup A Stars.

      We enjoyed these quick and easy Swedish meatballs. I liked the fact that I usually have all these ingredients on hand, so I can make them whenever I need a quick meal. I got 27 meatballs and they fit perfectly in my 9" x 13" baking dish. Next time, I would reduce the salt in both the meatballs and the sauce as it was a little too salty for our tastes. I served these over egg noodles. Thank you for sharing the wonderful recipe. Made for ZWT 9 Scandinavia for The Apron String Travelers.

      Yummy! Great meatballs. I used abour 1 1/2 pcs of whole wheat bread and processed them to make the bread crumbs. It was a bit more thatn 3/4 C, but it still worked out great. The flavor of the meatballs was wonderful. The sauce turned out very nice, although not like the gravy I'm used to for Swedish meatballs. I used about half the amount of salt. Thank you for a yummy take of meatballs!
