We love this soup. We also added nutmeg, like someone mentioned. The addition of it takes the soup of the top.
It was very bland. Next time will add more spices to give it flavor.
I added a 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg to the meatball mixture and also a pinch to the broth. This soup is delicious served with a loaf of crusty sourdough. My family loved it!
I am now 77 years young, however. my grandparents came from Sweden in the early 1900's, consequently we ate various Swedish soups. One similar to this was in the recipe box. I added a "wee pinch" of nutmeg to the meatballs, and one leek when cooking the potatoes for a bit of flavor. When serving I chopped just a few sprinkles of fresh dill. Delicious and reminded me of my childhood and Grandm's house.
Oh my gosh what a great soup! I added nutmeg to the meatball mixture because Swedes always use nutmeg in meatballs. I live in an area where the majority of the population is Swedish and I have never heard of Swedish meatball soup. My church has a soup tureen in January and i can't wait to take this. I am confident it will be a hit! Thanks for the great recipe!
