So these are not “authentic” Swedish meatballs. But rather our simple version of them. These are amazing with homemade meatballs but sometimes you go with simple. Can’t find lingonberry jam to put on the side? You can use cranberry sauce or raspberry jam in a pinch.
We made this as an alternative to the normal barbecue sauce meatballs many people serve at parties. We love the allspice and nutmeg flavors. I added a dash or two at the end to strengthen that flavor. Taste the sauce and make the decision for your family if you want the spices a bit stronger.
I served this with red mashed potatoes and a green vegetable to complete the meal.
