The Best Swedish Meatballs

The countdown until school starts is happening at our house.  We have been SO busy getting ready.  My oldest is starting Jr High!  I just can’t believe it.  Even when I was registering him I remembered walking down the halls of my jr high like it was yesterday.  It is so weird to be a parent and watch your kids grow up so fast.  And then you remember that you are just getting old. 😉

With school starting I am all about easy and delicious weeknight meals.  Swedish meatballs are such a classic perfect meal!

And the best part…  my entire family LOVES them!

I used similar ingredients for the meatballs from my mom’s recipe here.  But the creamy sauce has a secret ingredient that our family loves which I think adds such amazing flavor.  Worcestershire sauce.  It really adds good flavor to the creamy sauce and takes it to the next level.

The creamy gravy sauce is really what makes this meal so incredible!

This meal is ready in just 30 minutes and perfect for feeding a hungry family during the week.  We loved serving ours over egg noddles, but it would also be great served over mashed potatoes or rice.  It is such a classic recipe and this one I believe is the best!  I know that it will become a favorite in your family as well.

    I made these the other night for dinner and, Wow! I served them with mashed potatoes and my picky hubby even loved them! I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of the Worcestershire (I only used a teaspoon). I sent a friend the link, she made them for her family family and it was a hit with them too! So easy to make and it will definitely go into the dinner menu rotation! Thanks for a great recipe!

    i doubled the recipe so i could freeze some. i didn’t not double the sauce and it still makes a huge amount. i stick with the ingredients and the flavor is great. this recipe is perfect.
