Delicious! Smelled amazing while cooking!! Tasted amazing on the plate! The dijon really adds a lot so don’t miss it! I did changeup some things to make this a little quicker because I was short on time. I did not sauté onions or garlic, I mixed dry minced onion, preminced garlic, and dry oregano in with the Panko/milk mixture and added just a little extra milk for moisture. It turned out fine. I’m sure it adds a little something to the sauce if you’ve got the time to sauté the onion and garlic in the pan. Still delicious with this “shortcut method” though!!

It turned out amazing! So creamy and great flavor. I made it with white rice instead of egg noodles.
in my opinion it seemed to be missing something in flavor. not sure what.

My hubby and I loved it! My kids not so much, too much mustard flavour in the sauce. Also the proportion of sauce to meat was a little off we had lots of sauce left

Very tasty but a little too heavy. I will try making with milk rather than cream!

Very tasty very easy all around great meal delicious with mashed potatoes
We tripled it, 12 servings as we wanted it to last 3 days as my wife and I are both working. We have 3 boys aged 12, 13 and 15 and we’ll be getting 2 meals not 3. Suffice it to say, they enjoyed it very much. We found it tasty and because we did 1/2 and 1/2 pork & beef it wasn’t a heavy beef meal and added some flavour. The sauce was fantastic.

Excellent! I used Trader Joes' pre-made meatballs to cut down on the work! Browned the meatballs and set aside, cooked the onion & garlic and set aside, made the sauce and put it all together. Will do this again!
This recipe is amazing! I have never made anything like this or been successful with making homemade gravy. Somehow this recipe turned out ideal and has inspired me to try more homemade sauces. And of course this was loved by men too!

Easy to follow recipe, turned out great. I'd go a little easier on the Worcestershire next time but otherwise perfect.

Wow. 10 out of 10 Stars. Not the easiest thing to make (takes some time and effort).......but well worth the effort. Unbelievable taste. First time making Swedish Meatballs and it came out like I've been making them for years. Everyone liked them. I used Ground Pork and Ground Beef mixed. Great Recipe.

My Husband and I love this recipe.

This is one of my favorite meatball recipes. I love adding the sautéed onions and garlic, as well as ground nutmeg and all spice, to the meat mixture. I usually use ground beef and pork, sometimes ground turkey. The cream sauce is delicious as well, especially with an addition of sautéed mushrooms. Served over cauliflower mash.

I’ve made this twice now: once as directed, once with edits for personal taste, but both times with ground chicken. These are very good, and a great base recipe. The second time time around I tripled the garlic in the meatballs, subbed whole milk for the cream, added garlic and onion to the roux, and threw in some fresh thyme sprigs while letting the broth warm up: delicious!! Definitely adding this to my monthly meals. Bonus: the meatballs and gravy freeze and reheat very well!

My family favourite, it's asked for weekly but made once a month as a treat. It's a great meal for winter nights and omg it's flavour is amazing. I add in lots of other fresh herbs, parsley basil and lots of garlic. Thank you

I've made these meatballs few times and each time it turn out absolutely yummy! Soft , moist and delicious. I use the same recipe for spaghetti meatball. Just switch it to marinara or bolognese sauce.

I used ground pork as well as the beef, the meatballs are moister and are not to dry. I add mushrooms to my sauce and serve with new potaoes and lingonberry preserve.

Tasted great! As a true Scandinavian, I can definitely recommend this recipe. To be considered Swedish, it has to be served with potatoes and carrots though. Pasta is really not part of the traditional food culture in Scandinavia.

I used store bought meatballs. The sauce was great ,lots of flavor. Served over cauliflower rice. Whole family loved.
Tricia W. 28 Feb 2016
Turned out well! meatballs were delicious, the sauce is very rich so maybe use normal cream instead of heavy cream.
