Secret Recipe Revealed - Holiday Meatballs

Here is a great recipe to take to a party that used to be included in every Smörgåsbord I attended growing up.  My Aunt Martha's parents came to this country from Sweden, and the food her mother ("Tant Agnes") cooked for gatherings was out of this world.  I was a favorite of Tant Agnes, and one of the reasons was I devoured the food she so lovingly cooked!

Holiday Meatballs (aka Swedish Meatballs)

Soak 2 cups croutons in 1 cup milk for about 5 minutes or until soft; beat well.  Add 1-1/2 pounds ground beef and 1 tsp salt; combine thoroughly.  Shape level Tbsp. of mixture into small balls; place in single layer in a shallow baking pan.  Cover with two 10 ounce cans of mushroom or beef gravy.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Serve over cooked rice or noodles.

Hi Rob - Exactly--it wouldn't be a party without meatballs!!

Hi David - It is a very easy recipe--even I can "help" and get these done right.  Alas, I prefer the grill . . .
