  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, eggs, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, green pepper and Cheddar cheese until well blended. Form into walnut-sized balls.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add meatballs, and brown evenly. Remove from the skillet, and set aside. Stir flour and instant coffee into the pan drippings. Add beef bouillon and water to the pan, and mix well. Bring to a boil, and allow to thicken. Stir in sour cream.
  3. Return meatballs to the skillet, and let them simmer in the sauce for 20 to 40 minutes. Serve as an appetizer, or over rice or egg noodles as a main course.

Sounds like a good receipe but everyone is forgetting the true taste of the Sweden meatball,add nutmeg. Yes that's right, freshly grated prefered. I usually add 1/2 teaspoon to 1lb of ground beef or more to your likng. You will be amazed at the taste. Also add some to the gravy, start small and experiment as the flavor can over power the dish. You'll never make it again without this ingredient.

This recipe was pretty good. I think some fresh mushrooms would add a lot to it, if you like them. It's an even easier recipe if you bake the meatballs in a 400 degree oven for about 25 minutes, rather than on the stove. You can stick them in the oven and do other things while they bake. Still scrape the sheet they bake on for "pan drippings" though!
