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
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup lingonberry preserves

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, mix beef, bread crumbs, onion, salt, pepper, allspice, nutmeg, milk and egg. Shape into about 60 (1-inch) meatballs.

    In 5-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add half of the meatballs; cook 3 to 5 minutes, gently stirring occasionally, until browned. Use slotted spoon to remove meatballs. Repeat with other half of meatballs.
  • 3
    Reduce heat to medium; add flour to Dutch oven. Cook 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Add broth and whipping cream; beat with whisk until smooth. Heat to boiling. Add meatballs and noodles; cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until meatballs are cooked through and noodles are tender.

Expert Tips

  • For added richness, try serving this Scandinavian soup garnished with a dollop of sour cream.
  • 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.
