Swedish Meatballs
Originally uploaded by Simply Frugal

Beef, ground 1 lb
Bread crumbs 1 C
Egg 1
Onions 1/4 C
Parsley 3 Tbsp
Salt 1 tsp
Paprika 1/4 tsp
Lemon juice 1 Tbsp
Nutmeg 1/4 tsp
Allspice 1/8 tsp
Drippings or butter 2 Tbsp
Broth 2 C
Flour 1/4 C

Shape meat into 1 inch balls. Brown in drippings.
Cover with broth and simmer about 15 minutes.
Remove meatballs.
Stir 2 teaspoons broth into the flour, making a smooth paste. Stir the paste back into the simmering broth, stirring up bits of browned meat from the bottom. Cook for 5 minutes until gravy thickens and flour is cooked.

For a more pronounced flavor, mix 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind into the meatball mixture.
