Swedish meat balls

A blend of ground meat (often a combination of beef and veal), sautéed onions, soaked bread crumbs, beaten egg and seasonings. This mixture is formed into small (1/2-inch) balls before being sautéed until brown. Swedish meatballs are served in a pale brown cream sauce made by combining the pan drippings with cream or milk. They’re a popular buffet item or hot appetizer and are seen on most Swedish smorgasbords.
