Swedish Meatballs

My little family LOVES Swedish Meatballs. We are having our first "fall-ish" type of weather this week, so this is going on the menu for sure!

These meatballs are a creation of my own after pouring through various meatball recipes. They are pretty darn good if I say so myself. My kids stay true to their carnivorous habits and devour these delicious balls of meat incredibly fast. Try them for yourself and I'm sure you'll agree.

Swedish Meatballs
1 pound ground sausage (low-fat version works great too)
1 pound ground hamburger
2 eggs
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 TBSP dried minced onion
1 tsp all-spice
A few dashes of salt and pepper

Gently mix all the ingredients with your hands in a bowl. Form 1 -1.5 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. (I was able to fit 30 larger balls on one cookie sheet.) Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes, until no longer pink in the middle.

The Sauce:
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2  cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
A few dashes pepper

Heat ingredients in a small sauce pan until combined and warm.

Serve the meatballs and sauce over a bed of noddles or mashed potatoes. The meatballs are also great served as an appetizer. Just make the balls smaller and serve them covered in the sauce.
