Swedish Meatballs http://www.davita.com/recipes/appetizers and snacks/swedish-meatballs/a/4765

Our recipe for Swedish Meatballs calls for ingredients you likely have in your pantry. Ground beef is mixed with onion, canola oil, oatmeal flakes, beaten eggs and low-sodium beef broth, and then seasoned with dill, thyme, nutmeg, allspice and ground black pepper. While they’re baking, it’s easy to make a simple white sauce from butter, flour, reduced-sodium beef broth, water, thyme and black pepper. Our hearty Swedish Meatballs are low in cholesterol, sodium, potassium and phosphorus, so even those following a diabetic or kidney-friendly eating plan can enjoy them without guilt.
