"YUM!!! Took these to a potluck, and they disappeared lightning fast. I couldn't find ground pork so I used turkey, still turned out great. They were super moist and tender, and the spices were just right. I used flour for the gravy and it turned out absolutely perfect, but I found that it was an excessive amount of gravy--I'd use half the amount next time."

When I'm successful in making a meal my whole family likes, it makes the effort worth it. The meatballs in this are excellent & the gravy is just as good. I did use cornstarch to thicken the gravy, worked great! We've got leftovers so, tonight we're having it again w/rice. Thank you for sharing your family recipe.

This was very good but to future cooks....use cornstarch to thicken your gravy NOT flour!! I stupidly (I say stupidly because I know better) followed the instructions and used flour and that flavor is hard to cook off and we ended up using jar gravy :/ other that that mishap it was good and I will be making again minus the flour!

I took my nephew on a shopping trip to Ikea. He fell in love with Swedish meatballs. He had begged me and begged me to go back, so I decided we would make some ourselves. This is a great recipe. Instead of putting into a casserole I put it in the crock pot. I was a huge hit! And my nephew and I had fun cooking together.

This was a fun recipe to try - great reviews! A bit time consuming with making the meatballs but worth it. I used a meatloaf meat mix & added just a dash of cayenne but it was deliciously perfect!
