Swedish Meatballs

Swedish Meatballs

This recipe came from my Mother-in-law, who happens to be one of the best cooks I have ever met.  I have learned so much about cooking from her.  This is traditionally served over mashed potatoes and I like to serve it with a green salad.  It is  filling and true comfort food.  Suitable for a family dinner or company.  Swedish meatballs will quickly become a family favorite.
