Sweet Swedish Meatballs

Here’s an old family recipe for Sweet Swedish Meatballs passed down to my wife by her Swedish Mother who got it from her Mother and so on. These are delicious and oh so filling on a cold winter’s day. We like them so much they have became a holiday tradition in our household, to the delight of friends and family.
