Swedish Meatballs image

These mildly spiced meatballs are the essence of winter comfort food, just the kind of thing you'll want to come in from a blustery day to enjoy. Serve them with mashed potatoes and lingonberry jam, if you want something sweet.

Time 45m

Yield 4 dozen meatballs

Number Of Ingredients 21

1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup warm milk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large onion, diced
2 teaspoons kosher salt, more as needed
1 tablespoon brandy
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup beef or chicken broth, low sodium or homemade
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, optional
1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground pork
2 large eggs
2 garlic cloves, grated on a Microplane or minced
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Pinch cloves
Extra-virgin olive oil, as needed for drizzling
Chopped fresh parsley or dill, for garnish


  • In a medium bowl, soak bread crumbs in warm milk while you prepare the onions.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Stir in onions and a pinch of salt and cook until pale golden, about 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer half the onions to a large bowl and set aside.
  • Prepare sauce: Add brandy to skillet with onions and ignite with a long match or igniter (or if you're using a gas stove, just swirl pan, brandy should catch fire). Let flame die down, then add the remaining butter, letting it melt. Sprinkle in flour. Sauté until flour browns, about 3 minutes. Whisk in broth, cream and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Simmer, whisking, until reduced to a sauce, about 5 minutes. Add mustard, if you like, and season with more salt, if needed.
  • To large bowl with onion, add remaining 1 3/4 teaspoons salt, soaked bread crumbs, beef, pork, eggs, garlic, pepper, allspice, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Roll into 1-inch balls (about 2 tablespoons each), placing them on one or two rimmed baking sheets as you go.
  • Heat broiler. Drizzle meatballs with oil. Broil meatballs, switching pans' positions if using more than one so they both get close to the broiler, until well browned all over, 5 to 10 minutes. Serve with gravy, garnished with herbs.

Mom's Christmas Swedish Meatballs image

My mom found this recipe years ago in the newspaper and has perfected it over the years. We all make it every year for Christmas, it just isn't Christmas without these luscious meatballs!

Categories     Meatballs

Time 2h

Yield 10-12 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 13

2 cups chopped onions
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups breadcrumbs
2 quarts half-and-half
2 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 1/2 lbs ground pork
3 -3 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
4 beaten eggs
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour


  • Saute onions in 3 T. butter. Let cool a bit and lightly mix the meat, onions, bread crumbs, eggs, 1 1/2 cups of the cream. salt, pepper, nutmeg and parsley. Form into meatballs, about the size of a small walnut, place on cookie trays, and bake at 375 for 20-25 mn.
  • Put in two casseroles, and make the cream gravy.
  • Melt the 1/4 cup butter in a large, heavy saucepan Add the 1/4 cup flour, a touch more salt and pepper, cook for at least one minute. Do not brown. Gradually add the remaining cream, stirring continuously, until thickened. I like to add some Kitchen Bouquet for more flavor and some color at this point.
  • Pour over the meatballs.
  • Note: At this point, we generally freeze them and then defrost and bake for an hour or so on Christmas, as this recipe makes a lot of meatballs, so it is time consuming and who wants to do all that on the day of, right?.
  • Also, you can freeze the cooked meatballs alone, and make the gravy later and pour it over the meatballs right before you bake them.


St. Mark's Swedish Meatballs image

I found this recipe years ago in the church cookbook my grandmother gave to each of her grandchildren. I have spent many Christmas's with my cousin Heidi and we have made and enjoyed these together. I can't tell you if this is an authentic Swedish meatball, just that the church has a large population with Swedish roots.

Time 1h15m

Yield 6-8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 19

3/4 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground veal
1/2 lb ground pork
1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs
1 cup light cream
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon butter
1 egg
1/4 cup finely snipped parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1 dash pepper
1 dash nutmeg (optional)
2 tablespoons flour
1 (15 ounce) can beef broth
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee
salt and pepper


  • Have meat ground together twice. When I am not able to find ground veal easily, I use half ground beef and half ground pork.
  • Soak breadcrumbs in cream for at least 5 minutes. I let them soak while sautéing the onions.
  • Melt 1 tablespoons butter and saute the onion until tender but not brown.
  • Combine meats, crumb mixture, onion, egg, parsley, and spices. I am not a fan of nutmeg in meatballs and I do not add that ingredient.
  • Mix thoroughly.
  • Choice, brown meatballs in a skillet on the stove a few at a time until all have been cooked through OR bake in a 350 oven on cookie sheets until cooked through.
  • If you cooked your meatballs in a skillet, use the fat to start the gravy. If you made them in the oven, use the fat you have and a few tablespoons butter. Sorry, this part is not exact but as I figure it out I'll update.
  • Stir 2 tablespoons flour into fat.
  • Add beef broth, water, and instant coffee. I have also used a small amount of coffee left in the pot. I start with a Tbsp or so and just keep taste testing until I find a flavor I like.
  • Heat and stir until gravy thickens.
  • Salt and pepper gravy to your liking.
  • Add meatballs into gravy and cook slowly for 15 to 30 minutes. This is the forgiving part of the recipe, if your meatballs are a bit pink inside, simmer until they finish cooking.
  • Note: If you are new to making gravy and need to add more flour to make a thicker gravy, disolve the additional flour in an equal amount of water and slowly add to your gravy. Stir constantly while adding the flour mixture and for a a few minutes afterwards. By doing this you should be able to avoid a lumpy gravy. You may need to adjust the seasoning when you are done.
  • Note: Cooking and preparation times are only a guess.

Baked Swedish Meatballs image

This recipe is from my Seaward Inn Cookbook. My husband loves it so much that I am putting it on-line to reference while travelling. I serve it with egg noodles. The Seaward Inn is a lovely place in Rockport, MA, that we visited each summer while the Campbell family owned it. Great food and ambience!

Aquavit's Swedish Meatballs image

This is Marcus Samuelsson's rendition of the perennial favorite. The sauce is wonderful, unctuous. They should be served with garlicky mashed potatoes, quick pickled cucumbers and extra lingonberry preserves. The pickled cucumbers (and their juice) are really easy to make and the recipe is posted. If you can't find lingonberry preserves (a pity) you can substitute whole cranberry relish.
