The Best Swedish Meatballs are smothered in the most amazing rich and creamy gravy. The alternative is to introduce a binder, such as beaten egg yolk, to hold the minced meat or fish together, but that is too often detectable in the finished dish, so a good half-hour’s rest in the fridge and a small amount of care is probably a better idea.
The most common way we enjoy them is in my Oven Baked Meatball Sandwiches — which are super easy. I have tried many meatball recipes, so I have no doubt that this one will be stellar…and that’s even before tasting it! Some people feel there should be grated onion in the meatball mixture itself, while others prefer to dice the onion and fry it separately.
Io preparo molto spesso le polpette con il sugo e poi le servo insieme agli spaghetti. I have made meatballs for years thinking I am pretty good at it. I made these tonight to take to work tomorrow for meatball subs for everyone. I mention this only because it is a question I am often asked as someone surveys the neatly formed meatball that has just collapsed into mince before their eyes.
I have zero meatball memories from when I was growing up. Maybe I just don’t remember but I’m pretty sure my mom didn’t make them. Of course Italians are well-versed on meatball magic given their compatibility with pasta. Update – I actually 4X the recipe because of the meat coming in 1 pound packages so I had sooooo much meatball mix.
I can’t order meatball subs anymore because it must be made with garlic bread and I don’t think anyone does that. Start this recipe by making the dairy-free ranch dip, that way it can chill in the refrigerator while the cauliflower bites are being prepared. My husband even commented on how it would make great meatball subs.. so that’s dinner tomorrow night!
