I used frozen swedish meatballs but did make the sauce with the following changes. I did not use any meat drippings. Melted 1/2 stick of butter in a pan and added just a bit more than 1/4 cup flour. After adding the rest of the ingredients I also added a bit of onion powder, a bit more dill than called for and a tsp. of salt. This was perfect swedish meatball gravy! Yummy. Everybody liked it.

My husband's grandfather is always talking about a meatball dish that his late wife used to make that was a family favorite. I searched several websites and many recipes before finding this one. It was a hit on the first try. Now we have Mimi's secret meatball recipe. We all loved it. It was delicious and a lot easier to make than I thought it would be. It has now become one of our family favorites. Thanks Susie

Made my own meatballs, but started off with their sauce recipe. Had to make some additions: 1 Tbls. Wocestershire sauce, 1 tsp. garlic salt, and 1 Tbls. parsley. Substituted 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg for the dill (nutmeg is the original flavor of Swedish Meatballs). I also added 8 oz. fresh sliced mushrooms. It was very good with the changes.
