Swedish Meatballs Recipes

I was looking through a Cooking Light magazine and found this delicious looking recipe. It did not disappoint. The original recipe calls for 90% lean ground sirloin. But turkey was on sale this week and that's what I used. It was still delicious. The family went back for seconds and everyone was happy. Gotta love that!

Yield: 4 servings

Source: adapted from Cooking Light magazine - Swedish Meatballs with Red Currant Pan Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 6 ounces of noodles (I used rotini, I think)
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup grated red onion
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat panko breadcrumbs (I didn't have any, so I grated a piece of whole wheat bread)
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper, divided
  • 3/4 tsp salt, divided
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • cooking spray
  • 4 tsp flour
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 3 Tbsp sour cream

Steps:

  1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain. Toss with butter, cover and set aside.
  2. Combine grated onion, panko, milk, dill, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp salt, allspice and nutmeg in large bowl.
  3. Add turkey meat. Stir with hands til combined. Gently form meat mixture into 20 balls (about 1 Tbsp. each).
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Add meatballs to pan, turning occasionally, until cooked through. Take off heat. Transfer to a paper-lined plate, leaving browned bits in the pan.
  5. Place flour in a medium bowl. Whisk in stock.
  6. Return pan to medium heat. Add stock mixture to pan. Cook 2 minutes until mixture is thickened and bubbly, stirring constantly.
  7. Remove pan from heat. Whisk in sour cream, remaining 1/2 tsp pepper and remaining 1/2 tsp salt.
  8. Add meatballs to the sauce and coat.
  9. Serve meatballs and sauce over noodles.

A very nice change from spaghetti and meatballs. Nutmeg can be substituted for the mace if you don't have it. You may also add a dash of cardamom to the meatballs or the sauce.

A very tasty, quick meal. If you use frozen meatballs, the preparation is about 15 minutes. A lot faster than going out for fast food or pizza, and so much healthier and cheaper!
