Traditional Swedish Meatballs, served over wide egg noodles, a perfect comfort food meal.
My hubby has always loved Swedish Meatballs. I will admit, that aside from my Porcupine Meatballs, I really don’t make meatballs all that often. I really don’t know why? They aren’t hard to make, and typically have pretty basic ingredients. I think I need to change that.
I found the recipe for these Swedish Meatballs at Sarah’s Kitchen.Sarah’s blog was my assignment this month for The Secret Recipe Club. Sarah is an English girl from Kent, but has lived in the United States since 2002. Her and her husband reside in Houston, Texas, with their two fur babies. Sarah has a wide range of recipes, that you are sure to enjoy! I will sure be back to try some more of her yummy bites, like the Bacon Jalapeno Deviled Eggs, the Cherry Pepsi Ribs and the Jalapeno Popper Quiche!

- 1 lb ground pork
- 1/2 cup panko
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 large egg yolks
- 1/2 teaspoon allspice
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
For the Sauce

- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a large pan, heat a tablespoon of olive oil and cook the onion until soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, ground pork, egg yolks, panko, allspice, nutmeg, salt, pepper and the cooled onion. Roll into 1 1/2 inch sized balls.
Add a Tablespoon of oil to the pan the onion was cooked in and brown the meatballs. Set aside on a paper towel lined plate.
To make the sauce, melt the butter in the same pan, add in the flour and whisk into a paste. Gradually whisk in the beef broth and bring to a simmer. Add in the sour cream, salt and pepper and whisk to combine. Add the meatballs back to the pan and cook for about 10 minutes. Serve over egg noodles.
