    Loved them. Definitely a keeper. Everything was great except the amount of sauce. Maybe make a little more sauce. But still a very good recipe for Swedish Meatballs. My family and I would call them better than the IKEA Swedish Meatballs.

    Very good and pretty easy. I did add some extra spices like garlic powder but over all a good recipe I'd make it again

    The flavor was not for me and it took a really long time to prepare. But maybe others will like it!

    This recipe was both easy to make and delicious to eat. Everyone loved it. I served it over pasta with some warm crusty bread. I will definitely be making this again.

    loved it. just didn't use the allspice in the gravy. there was enough in the meatballs to carry it through.

    It took about 45 minutes to make the whole thing. I added more beef stock and more cream to make more sauce. I added linguine noodles and it turned out amazing.

    This is sooo delicious 😋 first time making it. My husband loves it. He had seconds. I sautéed some mushrooms and add to it. I’ll definitely make it again. Thanks much 😁

    Great! But don’t use ANY salt because it is salty enough.

    Simple recipe to follow. Added some things to the meatballs for my own taste - felt the sauce was lacking in flavor a bit. Overall, we enjoyed it.

    I made the meatballs too big, but it was really good. Especially the sauce. Made it with a side of parsley buttered potatoes.
