Meatballs the way my Grand mother used to make them

This is how I make my meatballs normally, and I always serve them with some brown sauce, potatoes and lingonberry jam. This is also the recipe that my grandmother used. She always used to roll them really small, I am often rolling them more medium-sized, but they are way tastier when they are small.

INGREDIENTS 4 persons:

400 gram minced meat (1,7 cups)

1 dl dried bred crumbs

1/2 tablespoon salt

1 dl full cream (0,4 cups)

1/4 teaspoon white or black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 dl water (0,4 cups)

1/2 finely chopped yellow onion, that you have browned

A 1/4 teaspoon sugar

1 egg

And some butter to fry them in.


  1. Mix the dried breadcrumbs with the cream and the water, and leave it for 15 minutes.
  2. Fry the onion, but don’t let them get brown.
  3. Mix the rest of the ingredients with the breadcrumbs mixture.
  4. Shape into balls, preferably pretty small. They are always more tasty when they are smaller:) according to my Grandmother!
  5. Fry them at medium heat in butter.
  6. Serve with potatoes, brown sauce and lingonberry jam!
