“This is one of my husband's favorites. I created it using several other Swedish meatball recipes that didn't quite make the grade.”

As others have suggested, I used Marla's Meatballs & Jessica's Sauce. Didn't do anything different with the meatballs. To the sauce, I added 1/2 pint of sour cream, 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1 tsp fresh ground pepper, 2 tbls of creamy horseradish sauce, and fresh mushrooms sauteed in butter (just enough to shed some water). Put everything in a slow cooker, set on three for 4 hours (Certainly doesn't have to cook that long, it was just easier that way. I put everything together over lunch so it would be ready for dinner). Served over egg noodles along with French Bread & Ceaser Salad. These were the best Swedish Meatballs I've ever had. (That's saying something from a guy who grew up on the Iron Range of Northern MN.) Thanks Jessica & Marla. PS: I've got the combined recipies along with my additions saved on my computer. If the original people don't mind, I'll post it as a new recipe under JMJ's (Jessica, Marla & Jimmy's) Swedish Meatballs.

I don't usually leave feedback, but this one deserves it. I doubled this recipe, used frozen meatballs, added crushed garlic, sour cream, nutmeg and canned mushrooms. I baked the meatballs breifly and then threw everything in the crockpot and it was the BEST swedish meatball recipe I have every fixed. Adding some of the juice from the mushrooms made this sauce a very nice consistency. Will make this again

Great dinner but made modifications according to our preferences and other's suggestions. I used low sodium-low fat soups; scratched cream of wheat and used 1/2 c. Italian bread crums; added 1/4 tsp. nutmeg to meatballs; 1 T Worcestershire to sauce and 1/2 can evap. milk. Served with mashed potatoes. There wasn't a ton of sauce though. Other than that we loved it. My husband stuffed himself and said these meatballs compete with this Mother's! I'll definitely make this again.
