Swedish-ish Meatballs

When I was a kid, meatballs used to make me gag. Why? I have no idea because I think meatballs are wonderful little spheres of goodness.

This is how I make 'em.

1lb ground beef, 1 med onion, 1/4 cup of milk, 1/2 cup (approx) plain bread crumbs, 1 egg, fresh parsley, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp ground mustard, ground black pepper 

Whisk together the eggs & milk.

Chop up the onion.

Add them to the milk/egg mixture.

Next, chop up the parsley.

Toss it in the bowl. Then add the ground mustard, nutmeg & pepper.

Add the bread crumbs.

Add the meat.

Mix it all together.

Form the meat into balls. I used my 3 Tbsp scoop.

Toss them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes or until cooked through.

How good does THIS look?

OK, so Swedish meatballs are traditionally serves over noodles, but I'm a rebel.  I just made some white rice. And then I whipped up some ghetto gravy...which is actually SO SO SO good.

This stuff:

So, I serve it all up like this and it is really really good. Really good.
