    Love this recipe! I make it at least once a month. I will say though I make a big change to it. Instead of baking the swedish meatballs, I brown them in the skillet that I will use to make the sauce. That way, I scrape but "browned bits" when I'm adding the flour and milk. This is a huge change in flavor! Otherwise, the spices in this are great though I had a lil more garlic powder as that's my preference.

    I made the recipe Gluten Free. I added Rice Flour instead of bread crumbs. Made Patties and coated with Cornstarch. Fried in Olive Oil. LOVE the SPICES.
