Swedish Meatballs classic recipe
Swedish meatballs are a very popular dish. I make mine with ground beef, alternately, you can usea mixture of ground beef and ground pork. You can also try it with ground turkey, but it doesn't always yield enough drippings to make the gravy.
Swedish meatballs have even made it to outer space, as in this scene from Babylon Five.
