Freezer Meal Recipe: Swedish Meatballs

5 / 5 (1 review)

Nothing beats this super-creamy gravy and tender, tasty meatballs… this Swedish Meatball Freezer Meal recipe  is an easy weeknight special!  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 one of these out of the oven and have dinner done in a flash!

Sweddish Meatballs Freezer Meal Recipe

These Swedish Meatballs are delicious served these 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.  I love how simple this recipe is and uses minimal ingredients to make a delicious homemade dish! This recipe is now my standard for swedish meatballs.  The flavors are fantastic and there is ample sauce for the noodles or other side dish too!

    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.
