Hi, Robin. I love these sweet and sour meatballs. My mom's been making them for years. She serves them as an appetizer with toothpicks. Yummmm. However, they're not Swedish meatballs. I come from a Swedish background, and Swedish meatballs are not sweet, they're actually savory.


Most often the sauce is made with butter, flour, beef stock, sour cream, salt, possibly nutmeg, and allspice.

Your recipe is absolutely yummy, though. In fact, I might make them for Christmas appetizers. Thanks for submitting, Robin.
