Mom'S Swedish Meatballs Recipe @pinch

This is a fabulous classic way to make Swedish meatballs with fresh ingredients. Making a roux with the meat drippings creates a wonderfully rich gravy. We loved the addition of consomme. It really packed in a lot of flavor. The meatballs are seasoned perfectly and cook down into the gravy. Pouring the meatballs and gravy over buttered noodles is heavenly. These Swedish meatballs are terrific on their own or served up with a crisp salad and warm bread. This recipe calls for consomme which has a stronger flavor than regular beef broth. If you cannot find consomme, beef broth may be substituted. It will still taste great. Mom's original recipe calls for dried parsley, too. Occasionally, when I make this recipe, I add a pinch of rubbed sage.I believe Mom may have gotten this recipe out of her original copy of the big red plaid cookbook from Better Homes & Gardens, but I cannot remember. This is my all-time favorite recipe from her. It really is a simple recipe but the taste cannot be beat.
