Crock-pot Swedish Meatballs Recipe

This crock-pot 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. It always makes it easier when the whole family can enjoy the meal too and these Swedish meatballs fit the bill!

Instead of eating out or warming up chicken nuggets, you can pull some of these frozen Swedish meatballs out, pop them into the oven or crock-pot, and have dinner done in a flash ( or slowly throughout the day)! 😉

The amount of Swedish meatballs you get from this recipe will vary depending on the size of the meatballs. I got 65 though!

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. Mashed potatoes might actually be our favorite with them!

    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.
