My family loves when I make these meatballs. We like Mashed potatoes with our Swedish Meatballs, rather then noodles, but sure noodles would be good also. I never measure anything it's always been a little of this and a little of that. I hope everyone enjoys these as much as we do!

    Once the meatballs are getting a nice brown on the outside take off the stove and place in bowl. The onions should now also be done. Take off stove and spoon out and add to meatballs. Add the sliced mushrooms to the same butter that was used for onions. Cook up mushrooms for about 10-15 mins, until tender.

    While the mushrooms are cooking start making the gravy. Cook on medium heat. Add bullion cubes or beef granules and let the heat reduce, add butter, and melt down, add flour 1 tablespoon at a time while adding flour stir constantly until thick. slowly add milk and water (I like to mix the milk and water together, just makes it easier). Add pinch of nutmeg and stir until thickened.
