I know that spaghetti and meatballs is a staple in every home, but have you ever attempted to make some traditional Swedish meatballs? This delicious recipe submerges the meatballs in mushroom creamy sauce, while your regular spaghetti and meatballs are cooked in some tomato sauce. I vouch for this Swedish meatballs recipe to blow your socks off!

The Best Swedish Meatballs Recipe

Ingredients you’ll need:

With components you can quickly find in your own pantry, you can easily make the greatest Swedish meatballs.

  • Ground beef. I prefer using 90% lean ground beef with this recipe, however, you go for ground chicken or turkey
  • Egg allows the meat to hold together with the components
  • Panko breadcrumbs. I like them best because they tend to soak up the liquid, and help keep the meatballs tender, but you can also go for regular breadcrumbs 4. Chopped onion and garlic adds flavor to the meat
  • Nutmeg is the key spice to season traditional Swedish meatballs
  • Parsley adds flavor if freshly minced to both the gravy and meat
  • Beef broth that’s your sauce base
  • Condensed cream of mushroom soup for the creamy consistency of the gravy
  • Sour cream for that added creaminess
  • Pasta. You can use any short pasta of your choosing to put the meatballs and gravy on top, like egg noodles.

What to serve with Swedish meatballs?

What to serve with Swedish meatballs?

I prefer to use soup or salad as a side for my dinners. The Best Cauliflower Soup recipe is one of my favorites, along with the Best Broccoli Cheese Soup, both match really well with these Swedish meatballs, which allows you to enjoy your vegetables as well!

If you’re anything like me, and you also love your vegetables, a really tasty option would be a Cucumber Tomato Onion Salad. I highly recommend my Pineapple Upside-Down Bundt Cake for dessert. It’s so delicious!

Can I make Swedish meatballs ahead of time?

You can also pre-make this recipe. Keep your meatballs with the gravy in the fridge for 3 days, and reheat them when you’re ready, or make your meatballs beforehand, and store them in the fridge until you’re cooking the gravy.
