There are many recipes that Norwegians consider as a national dish. This might be the one many of the elderly would say was their favorite. We say you have to go home to mom’s meatballs to feel at home in Norway. Every recipe is a little different, but consist of mostly the same ingredients. It’s important for a Norwegian household to have their own special recipe. I’ve looked through my family recipes, and modernized the tastes for this recipe, including a little more spicemess with cayenne pepper, and I use heavy cream instead of milk. I sent a bunch of leftovers with my grandfather, and got two thumbs and a smile the next time I talked with him about the meatballs… Norwegian Grandfather approve!
