Swedish Meatball Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mary N.

I was looking for a swedish meatball recipe and couldn't find one that I liked, so I made my own. [I highly recommend using Kittencal's Italian Meatball recipe (#69173) for the meatballs preparing without the oregano and adding to this sauce. Use the baking method and remove from oven 10 minutes before done.] But you can always use your own meatballs, frozen or homemade. This isn't the traditional sauce, but if you like a rich, creamy, mushroomy sauce over egg noodles, please give this a try!! Even though it has cream of mushroom soup in it, the extra ingredients make it taste like homemade and less like it came from a can. My family loved it! Hope yours does too!

My family and I thought the sauce was really good.. I love how creamy it is. The only thing that could have made this better was if I had everything to go in it and not had to substitute anything. I didn't have the french onion dip. So I substituted french onion soup mix and sour cream. I think that is why it turned out too salty. I am going to use this recipe again using the right ingredients.. Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe. The taste is amazing..
