Swedish Meatballs

dessert - recepes - cakes -soup

Sometimes, amidst all the crazy new recipes I try, it’s nice to throw in some comfort food.  In my house, those comfort recipes include chicken enchiladas, spaghetti, chicken fingers and beef stroganoff.  Swedish meatballs are, in a way, like a combination of spaghetti and stroganoff.   Can’t see it?  Well, in my convoluted way of thinking, on one hand you have pasta, red sauce and meatballs for the spaghetti and on the other you have a creamy sauce, beef and noodles for the stroganoff.  Take the meatball idea from one and throw it in with a type of creamy sauce and noodles  from the other and what have you got?  Yup.  Swedish meatballs.
