Swedish Meatballs

First let me say this is a number 1 crowd pleaser.  When I make it I always make at least 4 lbs of Chop Meat.  One pound is never for my crowd they simply love it .  I adapted this recipe from a cookbook  from a dear friend from her PTA  fundraiser Cookbook and have been making it since 1991.

Ingredients:

1 lb Chop Meat

1 Cup  Bread Crumbs

1/2 Cup Milk

1 Egg

1 tsp. Salt @ Pepper

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

1/2 Cup Onion Chopped

1/3 Cup Margerine

1 1/2 Tbsp Flour

1 Cup Beef Broth

Directions:

Soak bread crumbs in milk for 15 minutes.  Mix in with Chop meat .  Add seasoning and egg. Fry onion till clear in Margerine when soft Ladel out onion and add to chop meat .  Mix all of your ingredient well.   Make meaballs and fry in Margerine .  When done frying remove meatballs and place in a seperate tin .  Add broth to fryer and scrap up bits , add flour, cooking slowly to form gray.  Add gravy to meatball’s and Serve! SPECIAL NOTE :  While frying your Sweish Meatballs add more Margerine to reduce sticking .
