This flavorful and simple dish is by far one of the most popular to come out of Sweden (pickled herring just never took off in quite the same way). The process of how to make Swedish meatballs isn't really all that different from making any other type of meatballs. We suspect it's their miniature size as well as the lingonberry jam and gravy -- giving the dish a perfect sweet-savory balance -- that has made Swedish meatballs such a huge hit in this country.
