Hi everyone, I had an idea for something fun and useful for everyone I just made the best Swedish meatballs (with mashed potatoes and gravy) I have ever had, and felt like I should share the recipe with the world! Does anyone else have any special recipes they feel like sharing?
I'll put it down exactly how I made it, but I'm sure some other methods would work too.
1 lb ground chuck
2 Tb. butter
1/3 C. onion
1/2 C. milk
1/2 C. fresh bread crumbs
1 1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning
dash 5-spice powder
6 russet potatoes
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. salt
2 Tb. margarine
1/2 C. milk
2 Tb. butter
2 C. beef broth
Cook onions in non-stick skillet until golden. In food processor, combine breadcrumbs (or pulse some bread to make the breadcrumbs), milk, and egg. Pulse to combine. Let stand for 5 minutes. Add all other ingredients except butter, and pulse to combine. Put bowl of food processor in freezer for a couple hours to firm up.
Peel potatoes and cut into 1" pieces. Peel garlic. Place potatoes and garlic in large saucepan and cover with water. Salt the water with about 1 tsp of salt. Put pan on med-high heat on stove, covered.
Heat 2 Tb. butter in 12" cast iron skillet on med-high heat just until butter starts to bubble. Ensure pan is coated with butter. Use a spring-loaded scoop to drop balls of meat mixture into pan, starting from the outside edges. As meatballs brown, use a spoon to flip them and move them around in the pan (the center will be hotter) until all meatballs are brown on several sides.
Meanwhile, melt 2 Tb. butter in pan. Add flour (about 2 1/2 - 3 Tb.) to the butter, and whisk to combine. Cook over medium heat, whisking occasionally, until light brown in color and nutty-smelling. Add beef broth and whisk vigorously to combine. Heat a couple minutes, until thickened.
When potatoes stuck with a knife fall off the knife, remove from heat. Strain out water. Add margarine and milk. Mash.
Serves about 5.
You may want to serve this with a nice vegetable of some sort to make it seem healthier. Enjoy! I hope someone else has some recipes they've really enjoyed to share!

Small Fry with Ketchup
Good idea, except I never write my recipes down, just mix stuff together until it works .

I modified a recipe I had in a cookbook. The amount of flour in the gravy is a pretty rough estimate!
