Ingrid's Swedish Meatball Recipe:

1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground lean pork
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 1/4 cups of milk
1 egg
1 small onion (chopped)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
2-3 tbsp butter (to fry)

Mix ground meat with egg.  Soak bread crumbs in milk.  Add to the meat the chopped onion, salt, pepper, milk and bread crumbs.  Mix thoroughly until smooth.  If you want more spicy meat balls add more salt and pepper (Season All is good too, that is what I use).  Shape into balls the size of a walnut, using your clean hands dipped in cold water. 

Brown butter in skillet and fry meatballs in batches of about 15-20 until evenly brown, shaking pan continuously to make balls round.  Serve with boiled or mashed potatoes and Swedish lingonberries.
