If this isn’t a bowlful of creamy comfort, we don’t know what is. This soup is full of homemade Swedish meatballs and noodles for a traditional(ish) twist on Scandinavian comfort food. And of course, we didn’t leave out the fresh dill weed and lingonberries!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1/2 cup Progresso™ plain panko crispy bread crumbs

Steps

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    For added richness, try serving this Scandinavian soup garnished with a dollop of sour cream.
  • tip 2
    Lingonberry preserves are a sweet-tart condiment often used in both savory and sweet Scandinavian dishes. It can be found in the jelly-jam section of the grocery store. Cranberry sauce can be substituted for the lingonberry preserves, if desired.
