This is my swedish meatball recipe as well, although I use veal, pork and beef. How could anyone make swedish meatballs without allspice and nutmeg. That's what give it that amazing unique flavor!!!

It is hard to find ground veal where I live so I usually leave it out and just use the pork and beef. You are so right, it is the allspice and nutmeg that make the dish. I think most people think that Swedish meatballs are just meatballs in a brown gravy. If they only knew.
