Swedish Meatballs are a dish that I have tried making in the past that just didn't live up to my expectations. Recently I tried a recipe I spotted at One She Two She that completely blew me away. A mixture of ground beef and pork is the key to the most delicious little meatballs you've ever tasted.
I was a little bit worried that the sauce recipe contained no sour cream. Personally I like a little bit of tangy sour cream in a sauce like this, so next time around I might try adding just a little sour cream. As it is though, it is a light tasting sauce that works well with the meatballs.
My favorite brand for egg noodles is Country Pasta Homemade Style Egg Pasta. You can usually find them at Wal-Mart, but check their online locator for more stores near you. This style of egg pasta takes a bit longer to cook but they are nice and thick, perfect for Swedish Meatballs.
-The gravy recipe makes just enough to cover the meatballs. If you want extra to serve over noodles, double/triple gravy recipe.
-We wanted a large batch to have in the fridge for leftovers during the week, so we doubled the meatball recipe and quadrupled the gravy recipe.
-We thought the leftovers the next day tasted even better. It seemed like the sauce absorbed flavor from the meatballs and tasted richer. When I tasted this immediately after preparing, the sauce taste was very light.
