Cold winter days have me seeking out all the comfort foods! And swedish meatballs hit the spot today!

These lovelies have an awesome creamy sauce and coupled with the rustic flavors of the orzo they complimented each other perfectly! Here is what you need!

1/2lb ground pork

1 small yellow onion chopped

1/4c bread crumbs

1 egg

1/2tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp allspice

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

For Sauce

2 Tbsp butter

1 Tbsp Flour

1 15oz can of beef broth

2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

In the same pan that you cooked the meatballs add 2 Tbsp of butter melt and add flour combine well with a whisk. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Allow sauce to thicken. Add meatballs and continue to cook until sauce is thick and creamy and coating the meatballs.
