    i made these for my family and they LOVED IT! I also just made a gluten free version with turkey meat so let's see how my father loves it.

    Absolutely delicious! I couldn't throw away the leftover gravy, I just wanted to make more! They were the first to go at a meatball potluck. Thanks! Lord bless!

    This came out quite delicious. The picky kid loved them; the more discerning kid did not strangely. I had them for leftover lunch for several days. I used fancy wagyu ground beef and wild boar (the grocery was out of ground pork!) I think it made them more rich!

    These were ok. Too much onion.

    Very tasty and simple recipe. The one thing I personally disliked is the suggested amount of creme, I would say half of the portion is more than enough, otherwise it makes the flavours too mild. Well, that said, definitely more spices. "Swedish Meatballs" recipe has easily become now one of our classics - Thank you!

    Broth didn't thicken much, pretty watery, but definitely delicious. Possible it didn't thicken because i made just the broth and used pre-made meatball. Idk. It's good!

    Not bad! I substituted Greek yogurt for sour cream and added mushrooms and Italian parsley for a bit more flare to my taste.

    Was really good. I served it with the lingonberry sauce and it tasted just like IKEA meatballs. Yum! Will definitely make it again.

    Made a version of these meatballs except without the cream and added leek and mushroom to the sauce. Then thickened it with some corn flour. It was sooooo good!

    This is the second time I've used this recipe! I added fresh chopped rosemary and a hint of peppermint from my garden, and a little coriander. I would like to try adding mushrooms next time, too, as some of the other reviewers mentioned-- it would probably double down on the earthy tones of this dish. Very good, I'm glad this was the recipe I chose for my first go at Swedish meatballs.

    Yummy! I only made the meatballs for a different recipe and I cooked them on a rack in the oven to let any grease drip off - they’re delicious!

    Doubled the sauce and did only 6 cups of broth instead of 8. Extra creamy and amazingly flavorful

    I cheated and used a bag of frozen meatballs. I also switched out the beef broth for a mushroom stock I had on hand. It was super simple to make and very yummy! I look forward to making the actual meatballs soon.

    It turned out great. We opted for premade meatballs for time and it tasted fine.
