EwE - Swedish Meatballs - Bite-Sized Dinner



Peggy chose this week's Eating with Ellie theme, Bite-Sized Dinner.  This one made me put my thinking cap on - what could I make to fill the brief?  Then I was flicking through Comfort Food Fix, and found Ellie's Swedish Meatballs recipe.  Perfect.  Meatballs are bite-sized!

One problem that I faced in making this dish is that I do not have a working broiler.  Ellie broils the meatballs to give them caramelisation instead of frying them.  Without caramelisation, the meatballs lacked a little flavour.  They did get better after day 1, but I strongly recommend that you either broil the meatballs as per the recipe, or if you don't have a broiler, shallow fry them in a fry pan.

To see what the others made for their bite-sized dinners, visit the LYL section of the Eating with Ellie website.

Meatballs! What a great idea! I'm sorry I did not get around to making anything this week. I did good to get cookies made. You are always so good and consistent with your cooking and posting. An inspiration tome!

I have heard a lot about Swedish Meatballs, but have never made them. Is a broiler a grill??? That looks like a delicious meal!!
