Sometimes the simplest meals are the most delicious, so why not let the meatballs be the focus of your meal? This Swedish-style meatballs recipe calls for a combination of beef, pork and veal with a creamy sauce or gravy. Breadcrumbs and minced onions help create the perfect flavor and texture, while a side of cranberry or lignonberry jam makes the ideal accompaniment. Serve with mashed potatoes, cooked egg noodles or rice, and start with a salad to create a balanced, nutritious meal.
