1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup light cream
1/2 cup water
7 oz ground beef
7 oz ground lean pork
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 tablespoon grated yellow onion
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons 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 smorgasbord. Heat part of the margarine or butter in a skillet. When the foam subsides, add 10 to 15 meatballs. Cook over moderate heat until the meatballs are beautifully brown and cooked through. Transfer to a serving dish and keep hot while cooking the remaining meatballs. Serve with boiled potatoes, lingonberry preserve and a tossed salad.
Note from Ugglemor: This is a swedish recipe and traditional to Swedish Smorgasbord.
