We're big fans of the smorgasbord, the Swedish buffet-style meal where groaning plates of herring, cheeses, salads, sausages, and vegetables present a perfect Scandinavian feast. And no smorgasbord worth its salt would be without kottbullar (Swedish meatballs). They're hearty, meaty party food (small enough so that they're easy to eat while you're mingling), and, served with a side of buttery noodles (sprinkled with parsley) or mashed potatoes, they're a great entree for nights when you don't have time to fuss.

In the 1950s, almost everyone's mother or grandmother knew how to make dumplings. Their popularity may have had to do with the way the feathery light, steamed or boiled dough balls helped to extend soups and stews.

Stretching your food dollars is still a good idea, but nowadays, dumplings are more likely to be enjoyed as the homey comfort food of a simpler time.
