Scandinavians know how to throw a party. And Swedish meatballs have been an essential at cocktail parties and smorgasbords seemingly as long as Nordic winter nights have been lengthy and cold. It's a tender appetizer that, if you've favored modern architectural finger food for a while, may bring classic comfort to your New Year's do.
This version, from KitchenDaily contributor Alexis Touchet combines ground chuck and ground pork with a full quarter-cup of fresh dill, some ground cloves, and other spices. The rich sauce is made from meat drippings, along with cream and butter. It's just one of 10 hors d'oeuvres and drinks that Alexis has developed for her KitchenDaily cocktail-party menu.
