Swedish Meatballs

As promised, here is the recipe for Swedish meatballs that Q used this year. He tweaked it a bit this time around, and I thought they turned out wonderful!

Don't they look great?

Swedish Meatballs

3 pounds lean ground beef
1 package Jimmy Dean sausage
1 package stuffing mix
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 cup milk
2 eggs
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/2 envelope onion soup mix

Mix all of the spices in a small bowl first. Then, mix the stuffing, oatmeal and milk together in a large bowl. Add to that bowl the beef, sausage and eggs. Finally, mix in the spices. Roll the mixture into balls, then fry them until they have browned. Place them in a pan and pour a water-flour mix into it (1/2 cup flour with enough water for a smooth consistency; this will be your gravy). Bake for an hour at 350 degrees.
