Today Recipes | Easy Authentic Swedish Meatball Recipe – I thought that this was an okay dish. My sauce did not get as thick as I would have liked. I did make a few changes to the meatballs. I used pork instead of beef, I added an egg to help the meatballs stay together, and I added half the onion and allspice that it called for. My family is not big on onion taste, and halving the onion still gave these meatballs plenty of onion flavors. Enjoy!
