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.


  1. 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!

  2. This is the perfect dish for this cooler weather. I love the creamy sauce the most :D

  3. I like this theme ;) Great idea to make meatballs too.

  4. Perfect bite-size dinner for sure...and I love everything else on that plate as well. Yum, what a lovely dinner.

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