Tips for Making Delicious Homemade Swedish Meatballs:

White Scribbled Underline

Don’t make them too big. These meatballs are pan fried and contain pork. The last thing you want to do is undercook them. They should be about the size of a rounded tablespoon.

Take care while forming the balls that they are tight so they don’t fall apart in the pan. We like to dip our hands in water as we roll them to make them nice and smooth. The breadcrumbs and eggs also help hold the mixture together.

Fry the meatballs in batches. If you crowd the pan the meatballs will steam instead of brown.

These meatballs and sauce reheat perfectly in a covered casserole dish. Heat oven to 350° and pop them in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Cover with warmed sauce and you are good to go!

Step 4

Mix artichoke heart with top and top with apricot and dill. Serve cold or at room temperature.
