Swedish Meatballs

I'm not a huge fan Cream of Whatever soup (though I will say they've come a long way in the last few years). And don't get me started on “Brown” gravy mix (really? that’s the flavor? brown?). I’m not even sure how it is that I had all the ingredients for this on-hand but one night I was staring at the pantry trying to figure out something quick and easy to throw together for supper and thought... meh, why not?

I won’t say this is as good as an authentic, made from scratch, Swedish Meatball recipe but you know what? It’s pretty dadgone good!

Swedish Meatballs
1 batch Basic Meatballs
1 envelope brown gravy mix
1 cup water
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup sour cream
1 12-oz. pkg. egg noodles, cooked

In a medium-sized saucepan add one envelope brown gravy mix. Whisk in water and heat pan over medium-high heat. Heat and whisk until gravy starts to boil. Add mushroom soup, salt and pepper; stir until completely incorporated. Add sour cream, stir well, reduce heat to low and cover until ready to use.

In a large bowl, combine meatballs, sauce mixture and cooked noodles. Gently stir until all ingredients are combined then serve.

  1. These look REALLY good good good! Thanks so much for sharing at Weekend Potluck.

  2. Just made these. They are sooooooooooo good!

  3. I make a dish very close to this and if you find you're out of meatballs,this can give you a quick meal...I will brown ground beef and while it's browning I will whisk together 2 jars of beef gravy and 16 oz of sour cream, I will boil and drain 16 oz of egg noodles. After draining the ground beef I will add the gravy and sour cram mixture and the drained egg noodles back into the frying pan and top with shredded parmesan get the same flavors with less work...I season the ground beef with my favorite spices/seasonings...

    1. this sounds good too. I will try it soon. what seasonings do you use in the hamburger meat I don't use many spices. thanks

  4. Any idea how many servings this makes? I have a family of six. Just wondering if I would need to double it or not. Looks super yummy!

  5. Is there a good alternative for the cream of mushroom? I'd love to try this recipe, but not a fan of mushroom flavor! =]

    1. Use Beefy Mushroom so much better!

  6. This will for sure be in dinner rotation for the month. THANKS!
