Our Scandinavian family loved these meatballs!

Very good! Added sauteed onions and mushrooms to the gravy and only used ground beef as that's all I had on hand. Served over rice. Will make again!

Turned out good couldn't get my husband to stop eating it!
Made a few substitutions. Didn't have onion, used a pack of onion soup mix. Gravy was yummy! Will make again.

This is awesome comfort food. I served the meatballs on a bed of egg noodles. I could eat this all day. The family loved it also. This is certainly one of my all time favs.

The meatballs were OK. They should be cooked around medium heat. Medium high burned them pretty quickly. The sauce was a little bland. I ate it with some strawberry jam, and that helped. I hear cranberry sauce is as close as Americans get to Lindenberry (but I didn't have any of that).

This turned out great! I doubled the portion for a potluck and everyone loved it. The sauce was so delicious we putting it over our mashed potatoes. I'll definitely need to make this again.

Most delicious Swedish Meatballs ever, I have followed this recipe several times and will make it again soon after a recent trip to Ikea for some Lingonberry Jam

These meatballs are super easy and super tasty. This is a great week night meal. It also makes great leftovers.

Great recipe! I used to make Swedish Meatballs following my Mom's Pennsylvania Dutch cookbook and these are very much like those. Thank you for posting it!

I substituted 2 cups of low sodium beef broth to make it slightly less salty. Using 4 cups of low sodium beef broth made it almost flavorless
