Swedish Meatballs

This is a great standby... Quick and easy to make, and it's also easy to love--I don't get complaints from anyone when this one's on the table!

Swedish Meatballs
4 cans cream of mushroom soup
2-3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Milk to thin sauce, if desired
Meatballs (storebought or homemade, see recipe below)

Combine all ingredients (except meatballs), stir to desired consistency, and heat either over stove or in crock pot. Add cooked meatballs and heat through; serve over rice, noodles, or with baby potatoes (our family's personal favorite). And if you can find Lingonberry Sauce (we get ours at IKEA of all places), it adds a really nice authentic touch :o)

Homemade Meatballs (makes about 30)
2 lbs. ground meat (I usually do half beef, half turkey)
1 egg
1/2 C dry bread crumbs
1/4 C chopped onion
1/4 Tbsp. salt
1/2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
dash of pepper

Preheat oven to 400. Combine all ingredients thoroughly and form into 1-inch balls. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes until cooked through; don't overcook as they will become tough.

Didn't know if you go back and check comments on older posts...just wanted to let you know I took your Bake Ziti Spinach Casserole to a family in the ward last night. They loved it so much they asked for the recipe. We loved it too; my picky eaters asked for not only seconds, but thirds. THANKS for sharing. Keep up the good work. :) I frequent this blog often. I wish you could get your sister on board. You two would be an unstoppable duo.

Thanks Brooke! Anne and I were actually just talking about this last week... I plan to have her on board by the end of the month :o) Glad the Baked Ziti worked for you!
