We tried another new recipe tonight: Swedish Meatballs. This time I behaved and followed the recipe almost perfectly. My only changes where I used whole milk instead of heavy cream (because organic heavy cream is 4.99 for a 1/2 pint!!), and I used my big ice cream scoop to make the balls. I think they are supposed to be tiny, but that sounded like an exercise in frustration. So I made them big and tasty like me.
They did turn out pretty well! They tasted fairly Swedish-y, and the sauce was very delicious. I found it frustrating cooking the meatballs on the stove top though – the balls in the center of the pan got overcooked, and the outer balls were undercooked. I have a large cast-iron skillet that enjoys not heating evenly. I think if/when I make this again, I’ll bake them.
I served these with baked sweet potatoes and an organic salad. It was a very nice, simple meal.
Hope you have a great, productive evening, and thanks for reading!!
