Maria Ericsson


½ cup fine dry bread crumbs
½ cup light cream
½ cup water
7 oz ground beef
7 oz ground lean pork
1½ tsp salt
½ tsp ground allspice
2 tbsp grated yellow onion
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 egg, beaten
3 tbsp margarine or butter

Mix the bread crumbs, cream and water; set aside for 5
minutes. Work together the beef, pork, salt, allspice and
onion. Gradually add the bread crumbs, then the egg. Blend
well and fry a sample to test the seasoning. Shape into balls.
Make large meatballs to be served for dinner or small
meatballs for the smörgåsbord. Heat part of the margarine
or butter in a skillet. Add 10 to 15 meatballs. Fry over
moderate heat until the meatballs are beautifully brown and
cooked through. Transfer to a serving dish and keep hot
while frying the remaining meatballs. Serve with boiled
potatoes, lingonberry preserve and a tossed salad.
