I needed a quick and easy meatball recipe for a potluck at work. This worked great, and my family loved it also. I did mix and match the soups. With the combination of soy sauce and soup, it is salty, but very good.

Although, I am very much a snob when it comes to my swedish meatballs, I actually enjoyed this. My mother is Swedish and I was born in Sweden and raised all over the world. So I do very much know what real Swedish Meatballs taste like and how to prepare them. With that said, I made this knowing these are not the real deal which allowed bias to be set aside (which by the way, whether you add nutmeg, dill, soy sauce... that's personal preference and doesn't make or break the authenticity of real Swedish Meatballs). I added Maggi Seasoning and soy sauce to the sauce, used Craime Fraiche (didn't have Sour Cream), added a few dashes of dill and parsley and this was so yummy! With my egg noodles, tossed them with butter and parsley. Made for a great lazy night dinner!

Delicious recipe that is quick and easy. My only suggestion is that I enjoyed this more when Worcestershire sauce was used in place of the soy sauce.

I found that this needed to be diluted a little, which I did with beef stock. I also cut back on the soy sauce, to eliminate some of the saltyness. Adding 1/2 tspn each of nutmeg and allspice made it even better.

While vacationing, I needed an easy recipe with minimal ingredients. I was skeptical at first (usually make with heavy cream, beef consomme, flour & dill), but this came out fantastic! <br/>I added 8 oz fresh, sauteed mushrooms and used 1 can low-sodium Cream of Mushroom soup plus 1 can Beef Consomme plus the recommended soy sauce (also low sodium) and sour cream (low fat). <br/>Baked my own meatballs, and added to sauce; cooking for the recommended time.<br/>This dish was excellent! DH has requested I make it in the future, as it is likely healthier than my standard recipe.<br/><br/>Thank you sharing this recipe!

I made this at the last minute for a football gathering. It was sooo easy. I made it exactly as written except I didn't have 5 hours so I combined the soups and soy sauce in a pan to heat it quickly while I warmed the meatballs in the micro. I threw it all in the preheated crock pot and turned it on high for 1 1/2 hours. I tried to tell people to wait a while before trying it, but once the first person tried the meatballs there was no stopping the others. It created quite a feeding frenzy. Many people asked for the recipe and I was almost embarrassed to tell them how little work I had done. Thank you. I will make this again and again. Next time I may add some noodles for a more complete meal.

Add me to the fan club. I used two cans of campbell's cream of chick w/herbs and some beef broth. I didn't have the sour cream and it didn't need the soy sauce. Cooked my meatballs (frozen) in that while my pasta was boiling and OMG...it tasted like I spent all day in the kitchen.

Nice recipe. I inadvertently grabbed the worschestershire sauce instead of soy, but I don't think it mattered. Instead of 2 cans of cr. of mushroom I substituted one jar of beef gravy. My meatballs were the pre-cooked frozen kind so I worried that cooking them this long would "burn" them or make them fall apart, but it did not. Although a little salty (for me) we really enjoyed this with rice! thanks

Very good! We added some cracked pepper and used one can cream of mushroom and then one golden mushroom... added a can of mushrooms as well since we love them. Very good.
