Reviews for Swedish Meatballs
"Very easy and quite good. I make the meatballs ahead of time and freeze. Then I use them on fall camping trips. I put them in a dutch oven and cover with coals and everyone thinks I spent all day cooking."
"the meatballs are excellent (five Star )the sauce mix is ok ,a nice recipe , i will make it again and change the sauce mix a bit , a must make for any kitchen"
"I'm sorry, I haven't even made the recipe but I have to rate it 1 star due to the fact that you call it Swedish meatballs and using a white gravy!!! Being a Swede and I have even asked so many others since I was appalled when coming to the States and seeing how they kept having Swedish meatballs at the store and in a white gravy. We serve them with a brown thin gravy if we have gravy with them. For example how IKEA serve them"
"While the flavor was good, I didn't care for the mushiness of the meatball. My husband loved it. I will probably not make this dish again."
"My husband saw this recipe and asked me to make it. He loves it!!!"
