Sweedish Meatballs

I thought Swedish meatballs had rice in it.  I never like those, but this recipe does not have rice in the meatballs. They were really good.  I had enough left-over from this recipe for 2 more meals. Next time, I will make some rice or buttered noodles to serve with these.

1 cup breadcrumbs                                 2 cups beef broth                                2 slices fine chopped bacon
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar                             4 Tablespoons butter w/ divided use    3 eggs
salt and pepper                                       1 cup minced onion
1 teaspoon allspice                                  3/4 ob ground pork
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg                               1 pound ground beef
1/3 cup beef broth                                   2 Tablespoons flour

1. Mix together bread crumbs and next 5 ingredients (first column). Stir in 1/3 cup broth. Set aside.  Melt 1 Tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add onions and saute' 3 minutes. Place in a large bowl and set aside to cool.
2. Return to a clean skillet to heat and add chopped bacon.  When bacon is crisp remove bacon with a slotted spoon and place in the bowl with the onion.  Reserve bacon grease.
3. Mix meats, eggs, onion, and bacon. Combine then fold in the bread crumbs and refrigerate 1 hour. ( I only had 30 min. and it worked fine). 
4. Roll into balls and add to skillet with remaining 3 Tablespoons butter. Brown on all sides then remove with a slotted spoon. Repeat with all meatballs. (I made one batch like this but the other batch I baked at 450 degrees F on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
5.Add 2 Tablespoons bacon grease to a clean pan. When heated add flour. Stir one minute then add 2 cups broth. Simmer 5 minutes and stir in sour cream.
