My name is Kirsten Anderson and I’m Emma Harris’ mom. This is one of our family’s favorite dinners. This recipe was given to me by my grandmother.

  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • medium onion
  • dash of salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • scant teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 can consomme soup


  • blender
  • mixing bowl
  • frying pan
  • roasting pan


  1. Chop onion.
  2. In blender, combine onion, salt, milk, egg and nutmeg until smooth.
  3. In mixing bowl, combine blended mixture, ground beef, and bread crumbs.
  4. Roll into meatballs and brown meat in frying pan.
  5. Drain meat.
  6. Put meat into roasting pan and add 1 can of consomme.
  7. Cover and cook at 275°F for about 1 hour.
  8. Add water if necessary to keep the meatballs juicy.

Kirsten, your recipe is a life saver! Robert loves Swedish meatballs and the only ones I could offer were the Swedish meatballs we had in Ikea’s restaurant in Moscow and Swedish meatballs we can get in ready meals. I was looking for a recipe to be able to make it myself and here you have what I’ve been looking for for a while now! I can’t wait to try it. Thank you!
