How to Make Swedish Meatballs:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cook egg noodles according to the package. Strain and set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, egg, and breadcrumbs. Roll into 1-2 inch balls and place evenly in a 2 quart baking dish. 

Mix together the cream of mushroom soup and milk until smooth and creamy. Pour evenly over the meatballs and bake covered for 30 minutes. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium high heat. Add in the egg noodles and cook until slightly crispy. Remove from heat and serve with meatballs and sauce. 

Notes & Tips


  • Ground beef: Any combination of ground meats will work for this recipe. Ground pork, turkey, or chicken would all make decent substitutes.
  • Breadcrumbs: You can use unseasoned bread crumbs and just add a teaspoon of Italian seasoning in the meatballs. 
  • Egg noodles: Instead of putting the meatballs over egg noodles, you could use mashed potatoes or rice.

How to Store Swedish Meatballs

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. Freeze meatballs for up to 4 months.
