    This was actually the first time I've ever made Swedish meatballs and it was EXCELLENT. I used fresh dill weed and parsley and that always makes a big difference. (The recipe didn't specify on dried or fresh dill weed) I used frozen meatballs that were half pork/half beef and it was soooo good. I recommend this to anyone that gets anxiety (like i do) when cooking because it was actually very easy to make. My Mama loved it too! ?

    We love this recipe. I make it on nights we need a quick meal (served over egg noodles) or on a night we have more time we make it with mashed potatoes. Used this recipe for a middle school football feed and all the parents asked for the recipe as their kiddos loved it. I do double the sauce recipe, as we like the extra as gravy. We get our meatballs from Aldi, and a little hint the heavy whipping cream is so affordable there as well.
