Being a working mom, I truly understand the constant struggle with finding new weeknight meals that you can make quickly…especially during the throws of baseball, soccer, and sports seasons. You can be a “Super Mom” by creating quick, convenient and delicious homemade meals during the week with easy recipe ideas like these Easy Swedish Meatballs and noodles! I like to make the meatball mixture during the weekend, roll it into balls, and freeze it and then simple defrost and prepare the day of!! You can now make weekend meals on a weeknight schedule!
Swedish Meatballs and Noodles in Crockpot or Stove Top
The sauce to put your Swedish Meatballs in is so easy! You’re mixing together simple ingredients like cream of mushroom soup, beef broth, and salt and pepper to create the perfect Swedish Meatball gravy. The recipe is a simple and tasty one that anyone in your family can appreciate and best of all, you can either make it all and reheat leftovers for the next day or you could make half of the meatballs and save the rest for another meal the following week.
So you start by mixing together your meatball mixture: 2 lbs ground beef, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, and one can of Campbell’s rice and chicken soup. You can also add onion, salt, and pepper to your seasoning at your discretion. My family doesn’t like onions, so I left them out of mine. After it’s completely mixed, I rounded it into small balls and set on a cookie sheet and then I bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. You can also decide to freeze your mixture at this point and save for later in the week.
Easy Swedish Meatball Sauce
While your meatballs are baking, in a saucepan mix together 2 cans Cream of Mushroom soup, 1 can beef broth, salt and pepper, and 8 oz. sour cream. Heat until boiling and then set aside.
What to serve with Swedish Meatballs
Once the meatballs are done baking, I like to pour my “gravy” mixture into a crockpot and then let the meatballs simmer for a few hours in the sauce. If you are in a hurry, you can serve immediately too. I serve over noodles with rolls and salad for my family and everyone loves it. You can also make some roasted veggies to serve with Swedish Meatballs, as well.
