Swedish Meatballs

These were super tasty!!  I have never had the meatballs at IKEA, but have always wanted to try them, then again, I am not very often near an IKEA!  Anyway, these bad boys were excellent!  Super moist and flavorful, and the sauce is creamy and fabulous.  Will be making these again really soon!  Makes about 48 – 1 1/2 inch meatballs.
Serves 6-8 for about $1.00/serving
