Meatballs in the oven, the recipe of which is given below,I spied on Swedish television. Chef of the Swedish culinary program "Muppets" so good to show and tell about this dish that I could not resist and on the same day prepared something similar with small amendments because of the absence of some spices. Nutmeg and allspice I did not have (the recipe I give these ingredients, as advised in the TV show). However, it turned out, in my opinion, excellent. A lean meat allows us to consider the Swedish meatballs dietary. And my family also appreciated the Swedish cuisine. So I share with you: go to "tasty journey" - Sweden next!
