These Swedish meat balls are delicious! Don't let the amount of ingredients intimidate you they're not that hard to follow these steps. I serve these over top of buttered egg noodles.

The picture was taken with the left overs because I forgot to take a picture before we settled down for dinner , so sorry the picture isn't the best ...LOL
