    It was good! I made the mistake of putting them over cauliflower rice for a low carb option... didn't like that. Next time, I will stick to noodles.

    This dished worked out very well. I added 1 tsp whole grain mustard (instead of Dijon), but I could have added more.

    These are great. Sometimes I'll also add a splash or two of soy sauce to the sauce. Serve with egg noodles.

    I did a slight variation of this, as I didn't have all of the ingredients, but it was absolutely gorgeous, one of the best quick meals I've ever made!

    This is such a delicious recipe. I cooked the meatballs in the oven this last time instead of following the pan frying directions. I suggest following the directions. The meatballs are juicy and so tasty when the recipe is followed. Still no complaints from my family either way! I have also added a bit more dijon and worcestershire and we like it all! Such an excellent recipe that can be adjusted easily for your family's taste!

    This recipe is delish. My old recipe was canned cream of mushroom soup and sour cream. I love that I’m not using a processed can of soup any longer. This is definitely a rich sauce but it’s not like I eat it every week. A couple of times a year and it’s worth it. It’s a definite step up from the “usual” Swedish meatballs. Thank you!

    So good! I add basil, oregano, and smoked paprika to the meatballs and I add mushrooms to the sauce. I also do 2.5 cups broth and only 1/2 cup heavy cream. Big hit with my husband and daughter

    Here's a spinner for all of you to try to catapult this into your all-time favorite recipes. Make this exact recipe, but add 170g (1 pack) of blue cheese to sauce (not the Danish kind). You will fall head over heels!!

    Not impressed...the meatballs were ok, but the sauce was gloopy and thick....I followed the recipe exactly but wish I’d used cornflour instead of plain flour as I think it was the plain flour that made the sauce too thick. Having said that the family thought it was just ok...nothing I won’t be cooking this again.....reminded us of school dinners!

    Super easy and delicious! I added mushrooms to the sauce and used half cream / half 2% milk for the sauce and it turned out great. Would definitely make again.

    Good recipe that’s pretty easy. Love the flavor of the sauce. Wasn’t crazy with it over rice. Will have to try with egg noodles next time.

    Made this for Sunday dinner and the fam loved it! We have enough for leftovers after soccer practice Monday. The only thing I did differently was add two capfuls of Allegro marinade and I used Half &Half instead of heavy creme. The gravy was still smooth and creamy! Will add this to the rotation!

    delicious and pretty easy to make. i had to use pork and am delighted to report that any form of ground meat seems to taste just as great as beef.
