Great. I used gluten free flour and lactose free sour cream. Very tasty.

They cooked up just fine. Recipe was easy enough to follow, no fancy skills needed. Turns out we just don’t really like the sauce... would make them again, but for us, would not put the sour cream in the sauce. I would leave it as a beefy gravy.

I substituted turkey and chicken broth for the beef and pork and beef broth since one of my guests had a beef allergy. Turned out great and I received tons of compliments!

I really liked this recipe! Lots of great flavor. Seemed like one-quart was a bit too much stock, but I just added a bit more flour to resolve that issue. Thumbs up from kids and adults alike.

This is the second time I've made this. Only this time around, we didn't have the ground pork or bread so I just used ground beef and panko. Still came out delicious! Oh, I also had to replace the butter that I originally browned the meatballs in. I didn't want a burnt flavor in the sauce.

This took a long time to make but the results were fantastic. I served with mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce.

This is my favorite Swedish meatball recipe. The sauce looks a little odd at first but keep at it. Meatball prep is the hard part. There are zero rest breaks until the balls go in the sauce so be prepared.

since i didn't have any lingonberries, i substituted equal parts red current jelly and cooked cranberries

Delicious! I've got five kids ages 2-8 and it was a huge hit with everyone of them! I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of the allspice since I didn't have any.
