IKEA Swedish Meatballs

These are TO DIE FOR!! Seriously, my family is hooked! I found this recipe on Just Cook Already and have made it several times. I serve this with a side of pasta and veggies. Seriously, go try it now!

1 pound ground sausage (low-fat version works great too)
1 pound ground hamburger
2 eggs
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 TBSP dried minced onion
1 tsp all-spice
A few dashes of salt and pepper

Gently mix all the ingredients with your hands in a bowl. Form 1 -1.5 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. (I was able to fit 30 larger balls on one cookie sheet.) Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes until no longer pink in the middle.

The Sauce:
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
A few dashes pepper

*Heat ingredients in a small sauce pan until combined and warm.

*Serve the meatballs and sauce over a bed of noddles or mashed potatoes.

***The meatballs are also great served as an appetizer. Just make the balls small and serve them covered in the sauce on toothpicks.
