Recipe of the Week: Almost Swedish Meatballs

almost-swedish-meatballsMy Grandma B came to the United States from Sweden when she was about 15 years old. The meals she cooked were an interesting mix of New and Old Country. Unfortunately, her recipes live on only in my culinary memory. I hope these meatballs would have made her proud.

Ingredients:

2 slices soft whole wheat bread, torn into small pieces
scant 2/3 cup 2% milk
1- 1 1/3 lb ground beef
1 egg
1 1/2 T onion, finely minced
1/4 t mace
1/4 t pepper
1/8 t allspice
2 T butter
2 T flour
1 can condensed cream of celery soup, or one recipe cream of celery soup
1 cup white wine, divided use
1 cup undiluted evaporated milk
2 T chopped fresh parsley
