    This recipe is delish. My old recipe was canned cream of mushroom soup and sour cream. I love that I’m not using a processed can of soup any longer. This is definitely a rich sauce but it’s not like I eat it every week. A couple of times a year and it’s worth it. It’s a definite step up from the “usual” Swedish meatballs. Thank you!

    So good! I add basil, oregano, and smoked paprika to the meatballs and I add mushrooms to the sauce. I also do 2.5 cups broth and only 1/2 cup heavy cream. Big hit with my husband and daughter

    Here's a spinner for all of you to try to catapult this into your all-time favorite recipes. Make this exact recipe, but add 170g (1 pack) of blue cheese to sauce (not the Danish kind). You will fall head over heels!!

    Not impressed...the meatballs were ok, but the sauce was gloopy and thick....I followed the recipe exactly but wish I’d used cornflour instead of plain flour as I think it was the plain flour that made the sauce too thick. Having said that the family thought it was just ok...nothing I won’t be cooking this again.....reminded us of school dinners!

    Super easy and delicious! I added mushrooms to the sauce and used half cream / half 2% milk for the sauce and it turned out great. Would definitely make again.

    Good recipe that’s pretty easy. Love the flavor of the sauce. Wasn’t crazy with it over rice. Will have to try with egg noodles next time.

    Made this for Sunday dinner and the fam loved it! We have enough for leftovers after soccer practice Monday. The only thing I did differently was add two capfuls of Allegro marinade and I used Half &Half instead of heavy creme. The gravy was still smooth and creamy! Will add this to the rotation!

    delicious and pretty easy to make. i had to use pork and am delighted to report that any form of ground meat seems to taste just as great as beef.

    Made this tonight and it was spot on for the seasoning! Everyone loved it!!!! The only tweaks I had was adding more flour towards the end for thickness, but that’s really preference. Also, I used ground turkey and baked them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. (Around 1-1.5 oz each meatballs. About 1 inch diameter) Then broil for 2-4 minutes for the crispy brownness. But make sure not to over cook, making them dry. This is a recipe I’ll be using again!
