Do you have recipes that your family loves, but you haven’t made in a while? Because I develop recipes everyday, I sometimes neglect some of our family’s favorites. Given the response of all three of my guys, I’d say they were pleasantly surprised by my choice of Swedish Meatballs.

I simply adore the flavor the grated onion and its’ juices adds to the meatballs!

Need a dinner ready in under 30? Here you go!

Combine ground beef or turkey, grated onion and its’ juices, egg, milk, salt, pepper, parsley and bread crumbs.

I love using my broiler pan for browning meatballs. There’s no need for any oil or fat of any kind. Simply spray your broiler grate with a little non-stick cooking spray. Roll into uniformed-sized meatballs, place on a broiler pan and bake in a 35 F degree oven until your meatballs cooked through about 20 minutes.

While meatballs cook, melt the butter in your skillet. (You can also use olive oil). Add your unbleached all-purpose flour and make a roux by stirring until combined. do not let the flour brown. Add paprika and stir together. Nice color, eh? Cook 1 minute more.

Now, carefully add your organic beef broth, salt, and pepper. Whisk together until thickened. Add your sour cream. Now your meatballs and heat through. Serve over whole-wheat egg noodles. We like the Hodgson’s brand.
