Crockpot Swedish Meatballs Recipe

This crockpot Swedish meatballs recipe is definitely a personal favorite. I love having a few meals in the freezer for those busy nights when you have so many places to be and not enough time to get it all done.

Instead of eating out you can pull some of these frozen Swedish meatballs out, pop them into the oven or crockpot, and have dinner done in a flash!


What to Serve with Swedish Meatballs:

These Swedish Meatballs are delicious served over a bed of egg noodles or any wide noodles really. You could also use them on a hoagie bun and spoon the sauce over the top.  Other possible sides would be mashed potatoes or rice

Final Thoughts & Meatball Rolling Tip

I love how simple this recipe is: all it takes is some minimal ingredients to make delicious homemade Swedish meatballs! This recipe is now my standard for Swedish meatballs as the flavors are fantastic and there is ample sauce for the noodles or other side dishes too!

Oh, by the way, if you love this recipe but you’re tired of rolling meatballs by hand, don’t worry, there’s a faster, better way! It’s called a meat baller and you can get one for pretty cheap on Amazon! Here’s the one we recommend:

    Ok, this will probably be a silly question. But, is the stove-top stuffing prepared, or is it used dry right out of the box?

    Have you tried thawing then adding to a crock pot? Just curious if I sat this out the morning of to thaw, then after getting home from school throwing it in the crock pot before leaving for the kids’ 1-2 hour practices and it being ready by the time we got home.
