I always add sautéed onion,finely chopped.I put a little sugar on them to caramelize.I also add allspice.There's nothing like good homemade Swedish meatballs,potatoes, gravy,& of course,lingonberries.

Made those this week. Used allspice instead of nutmeg. Those are great with the cream sauce and lingonberry jam as well as the pressed cucumbers.
