Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
the meatballs were very tasty,when the gravy was made I added some sour cream to it and served it all over hot,cooked,drained noodles. My husband and two grandchildren really ate them up.
This was a very good take on swedish meatballs. my family (have a 5 and 7 year old) loved them.
I'm not good at making gravy from scratch, so, I just made the meatballs. I used already prepared gravy and rice instead of noodles. Very good!
My family loved them :) will definitely do them again!
the meatballs were excellent as soon as I made them they were gone. they were supposed to be for a b-day party but they didnt make it.. ha ha. the sauce was nasty though... we just had the meatballs
