Swedish Meatballs: Quick and Easy Meals

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.
