Mom's Swedish Meatballs Recipe

This recipe calls for consomme which has a stronger flavor than regular beef broth. If you cannot find consomme, beef broth may be substituted. It will still taste great. Mom's original recipe calls for dried parsley, too. Occasionally, when I make this recipe, I add a pinch of rubbed sage.

I believe Mom may have gotten this recipe out of her original copy of the big red plaid cookbook from Better Homes & Gardens, but I cannot remember. This is my all-time favorite recipe from her. It really is a simple recipe but the taste cannot be beat.

We loved the addition of consomme to this yummy recipe! It really packed in a lot of flavor. These meatballs are terrific on their own or served-up with a crisp salad and warm bread. The Test Kitchen
