Homemade Swedish Meatballs

Need I say more? I mean…come on…who doesn’t love real Swedish meatballs? They are so stinkin’ good! Slightly time consuming to make, but so worth it. We made them this Christmas when Ryan’s parents came into town. Ryan’s heritage is strongly Swedish and Norwegian, so I always love trying to incorporate that into our holiday gatherings. His mom, Jayne, can make a mean Swedish pancake, which I always look forward to when we are visiting. Instead of a ham style Christmas dinner I thought I’d “God Jul” it up Swedish style with some Swedish meatballs and lingonberry jam.

This recipe is a bit labor intensive, so make sure you are making this on a day that you have time to hang in the kitchen and cook. It makes a big batch of meatballs, which freeze well too, so you can have any leftovers frozen for later meals! I love the creaminess of the sauce and the slightly sweet flavor the nutmeg and cardamom give the meatballs…a truly sweet and savory dish. The perfect bite consists of meatball, noodle, sauce and a little dabble of lingonberry jam. Mmm!

We had these on Christmas, and after writing this post I’m wishing we were eating them tonight again. I think I know what will be on my shopping list for tomorrow!

Have a good week everyone!
