C T's Swedish Meatballs (Crockable)

Total Time

Prep 5 mins

Very creamy comfort food. Originally made as OAMC CrockPot meal, and it froze very well. Originally called for yogurt, which separated, so use full-fat sour cream instead. Uses pre-made meatballs (yours or store-bought).

Made for Spring PAC 2013 and these were delicious and rich. I followed the instructions but next time I might use some yogurt for the sour cream or cut back on both the sour cream and cream cheese but with your C T's Zucchini Casserole#244236 and mashed garlic potatoes this dinner was a hit and one I will make again. Thank you for posting.

These might not be Swedish Meatballs but they are CT's Swedish Meatballs. Ever since I started buying Costco frozen meatballs (I think they call them Italian) I don't make mine from scratch very much anymore and look for recipes like this. I liked the change with the beef gravy ingredient. I make gravy from scratch & freeze into cubes till I need some. We don't like real creamy so I cut the sauce in 1/2, increased the meatballs 4 oz & used 5 oz egg noodles at the end & it was perfect for us. I like using yogurt vs sour cream so I tryed adding in the last 30-60 min of cooking & it seemed to work fine (no seperation). Quick, easy & tasty recipe, thanks for sharing.

This was good, but it really didn't taste like Swedish meatballs to us. I have never known swedish meatballs to be this creamy and cheesy tasting. If I make this one again, I will probably take out some of the sour cream and cream cheese. Thanks for sharing.
