swedish meatballs

Submitted by: LOULOU27

Introduction

calorie wise, protein wise... all so wise (hum...) (see the nutritional informations)
I went to Ikea and saw into one of their recipe books that their meatballs were not done with crumbled bread but potato puree. This makes very tender meatballs.

I adapted the recipe. Everybody will like them. As they are not dry, no need of a heavy gravy to swallow them.

Now, put the veal into a bowl and add 3/4 of teaspoon of allspice, the salt, pepper if you wish. Add the potatoe purée, and grind the onion on the meat. Add the egg. Then puree the whole thing until all ingredients are perfectly mixed. Make meatballs (result is 16 meatballs).
