  1. i’m attempting this tomorrow. i’ve never had much luck with meatballs not burning or whatever, but maybe with my new stainless steel skillet it’ll work a miracle. even though your directions say nonstick skillet. i’m just a rebel that way.

  2. my meatballs didn’t burn!! (they sorta stuck a bit, but since there were 24, for 2 of us, it wasn’t a big deal)

    my picky boyfriend saw the meatballs and was all “are you make swedish meatballs?!” all excited like, and i said “no..”, and he said “spaghetti and meatballs??”, and i said “no..”. he asked what i WAS making, and i told him meatball stroganoff, and he was all disappointed and said “oh”. but i made it anyhow, and it turned out AMAZINGLY. we each had 2 helpings 😛 and he loved it. i followed the directions to the LETTER, except for at the very end when i dumped in the whole container of sour cream thinking it was only 1/2 cup, only to realize that it was twice that much…but it was STILL excellent. 😛

    i’ve printed out your recipe and will definitely use it again. but probably not until, like, October, because i kept walking back to the skillet and dipping the leftover egg noodles in the sauce, so that can’t be good for swimsuit season :P. you rock. but then, we already knew that.
