Easy Swedish Meatballs

These Easy Swedish Meatballs are flavorsome, creamy, and so good that you will want to lick the plate.


1 pound lean ground beef
1 small graded onion1 large egg
1/4 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon oregano 
1 teaspoon basil
2 Tbsp. butter (optional)
1 Tbsp. flour 1 cup chicken stock 1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 tsp. allspice
1 cup cream or heavy cream


In a medium bowl mix the beef, egg, bread crumbs, cheese, salt, 2 cloves garlic, basil, allspice, oregano, onion and pepper.
Form the mixture into small to medium meatballs.
In a large, deep nonstick skillet, brown the meatballs over medium-high heat, turning occasionally until done.
Drain the excess fat from the pan, leaving about a tablespoon. 
Add the butter (if you like, or just leave the drippings in the pan) and the flour, and whisk to combine.
Add the chicken stock, cream, and stir, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the mixture boils and thickens. 
Whisk in the sour cream and stir until it has the texture of creamy gravy. 
Goes great with mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles and  peas, carrots or corn.
