“This is an old, classic recipe for Swedish meatballs. Serve with sauteed vegetables and fresh bread.” - by Marla
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Melt 3 tablespoons butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and saute for 5 to 10 minutes, or until tender.
- In a separate medium bowl, combine the bread crumbs with 2 tablespoons of evaporated milk and stir, allowing the crumbs to absorb the milk. Add the ground beef, onion, egg, salt, ground black pepper and parsley to taste. Mix well and form into golf ball sized meatballs.
- Heat remaining butter or margarine in the same skillet over medium to medium high heat and add the meatballs. Carefully shake the skillet to turn the meatballs, as needed. Saute for 10 to 15 minutes, or until meatballs are browned on all sides. Transfer the meatballs to a serving platter, reserving the liquid in the skillet.
- Add the flour to the skillet and stir until smooth. Then gradually add the evaporated milk, tomato sauce and nutmeg to taste; again stirring until mixture is warmed, smooth and creamy. Strain over meatballs.

"Oh WOW were these ever good.. but I must warn you I altered the recipe a lot. After trying a few really bland recipe's I wanted some FLAVOR.. soooo Instead of cream of wheat, I used Italian bread c..." See morerumbs. I also added 1/2 tsp allspice, 1 TSP worceschire sauce, 1 tsp garlic powder, and one package Lipton Onion Soup Mix to the meat... (I used 1/2 lb ground beef and 1/2 lb ground pork). I think Marla really hit it on the head with frying the meatballs instead of baking them initially. This really added a lot of flavor. I then used Jessica's sauce (1 can evaporated milk, 1 can cream of chicken soup, one can cream of mushroom soup, and my own addition of 1/4 cup white wine. I have had authentic swedish meatballs in Sweden and these were much better!!! Thanks Marla "
"I am giving this a five star only cause I changed the recipe. I made the meatballs just like this recipe. I used the sauce recipe from Swedish Meatballs I. 1 can of cream of chicken soup, 1 can of cre..." See moream of mushroom soup and 1 can evaporated milk. Do not confuse evaporated milk with condensed milk. They are very different. They turned out excellent."
