Swedish Meatballs

My  mother had this recipe since I was a kid.  I remember her making this for company or family gatherings.  I also vividly remember the amazing aroma it filled the house with.
I remembered these Swedish Meatballs while looking for something to bring to a dinner party.
So here it is.  So glad this recipe was recovered from so many years ago.
