"These always disappear at potlucks. I serve them with cranberry sauce during the holidays or a tart jam the rest of the year (and my kids like them dipped in BBQ sauce or ketchup)."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, ground sausage, breadcrumbs, milk, chopped onion, minced garlic, allspice, nutmeg, black pepper, salt, egg, and chopped parsley. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly combined.

Step 2

Shape the meat mixture into small meatballs, about 1 inch in diameter. Place the meatballs on a baking sheet or plate.

Step 3

Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the meatballs to the skillet in batches, leaving space between them. Cook the meatballs for about 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until they are browned and cooked through.

Step 4

Once cooked, transfer the meatballs to a serving dish. Garnish with additional chopped parsley.

Step 5

Serve the Scandinavian meatballs hot as an appetizer, main course, or as part of a smorgasbord. Accompany with a tart jam or cranberry sauce on the side for a fun dip.

These were delicious and very easy to make. It was hard to keep from snacking on them while I was cooking them!
