Swedish Meatballs

Share the Recipe

Juicy meatballs smothered in a beautiful creamy gravy, with a hint of spicing that Swedish Meatballs are known for. I deviate from the traditional recipe by using my method of soaking chopped bread in grated onion which adds more flavour and makes extra soft meatballs.

Ingredients for 5 servings

2 slices sandwich bread, crusts removed, chopped into small cubes (Note 2)
1 medium onion (Note 3)
300g / 10 oz ground beef (mince)
300g / 10 oz ground pork (mince), or sub with beef (Note 4)
1 egg
¼ tsp freshly ground nutmeg
¼ tsp All Spice powder
¼ tsp black pepper
¾ tsp salt
1 tbsp oil

40g / 3 tbsp butter (preferably unsalted)
3 tbsp flour
2½ cups beef broth / stock, salt reduced (or sub with chicken)
⅓ – ½ heavy / thickened cream (Note 5)
