Swedish Meatballs

This is an easy recipe. It takes a little time to make the meatballs and brown them but, after you're done browning them, there's nothing more to do until you're ready to eat. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix by hand all ingredients except soup and water; form into balls.
  2. Brown meatballs in large pan on medium heat. (I usually turn them two to three times and keep them covered while they are cooking, so the insides get cooked a little.)
  3. Put meatballs on a paper towel to drain excess grease.
  4. Put the soup and 1 full can (10.5 oz.) of water in a large pot or crock pot and stir down large lumps.
  5. Add meatballs to soup.
  6. Simmer for at least 45 minutes on the stove or cook on low for 6-8 hours in the crock pot.
  7. Serve over egg noodles or rice.

This had a nice flavor. Next time I will skip the extra can of water in the sauce. This makes it soupy versus thick and creamy.

My husband and I thought this recipe was delicious !! I used 2 lbs ground beef, 1/3 cup bread crumbs and 2 cans of soup as we like more gravy. I also served with mashed potatoes, butter beans and corn muffins. Thank you !

*Made for PAC Fall 2007* We really enjoyed this :) I thought the sauce thinned out a little too much so next time I will use maybe 1/2 soup can of milk vs a whole can of water. DH and I really loved the meatballs and may use the meat mixture in other recipes. Thanks for sharing. Nick's Mom
