In a medium sized bowl combine ground beef, panko, parsley, allspice, nutmeg, onion, garlic powder, pepper, salt and egg. Mix until combined.
Tip: if you prefer a springy texture to your meatballs, it can be run in a food processor or using a cake beater.
Roll into 12 large meatballs or 20 small meatballs.
In a large skillet heat olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter. Add the meatballs and cook turning continuously until brown on each side and cooked throughout. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil.
Add 4 tablespoons butter and flour to skillet and whisk until it turns brown. Slowly stir in broth(s) and heavy cream. Add Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard and bring to a simmer until sauce starts to thicken. Salt and pepper to taste.
Add the meatballs back to the skillet and simmer for another 1-2 minutes.
Serve over egg noodles, rice or mashed potatoes and garnish with chopped parsley (optional). Serve with a side of lingonberry jam if you'd like.
These can also be served as hors d'oeuvres speared with toothpicks.
