Karl’s Swedish Meatballs

Daughter Eilene is having friends over to play games again and this time they had a specific dinner request—they wanted Swedish meatballs. This is a dish that even before wife Jan joined the Noom program she would not let me make—she does not like Swedish meatballs because the meat is usually mixed to the point where it loses all texture. Swedish meatballs are usually small in size—½-1 tablespoon—and mildly spiced. They are usually served in gravy or with gravy on the side.

I went to Ikea last week and, after buying Eilene a bunch of furniture for the updating of her room, I stopped off to buy Swedish meatballs, fish egg paste, and pickled herring. I saw a thing called Grönsakskaka and—always interested in new things—I bought a box to go with the meatballs.
