Swedish Dilled Meatballs Recipe

I have wanting to prepare this recipe for some time-it is snowing, blowing, and cold making it a good day to stay in the kitchen. I wasn’t sure how the flavor of the dill would blend with the rest of the ingredients, but it turned out to be really good. My wife stated she likes them better than the Italian meatballs we usually prepare. The dill is definitely the dominating spice in this recipe, so if you like the flavor of dill, give this recipe a try. This is a simple recipe but it does take some time to prepare because you have to allow a couple of hours for the flavors to blend. This recipe creates a delicious sauce that can be served over mashed potatoes, or egg noodles.

If you like meatballs and want to try something a little different give this Swedish Dilled Meatballs Recipe a try. Enjoy
