Easy Swedish Meatball Recipe
Ingredients Needed For The Meatballs:
- 1 pound ground pork
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 and 1/2 cups plain breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 3 eggs beaten
Ingredients Needed For The Gravy:
- 2 cans (10.5-ounce) beef broth
- 1 can (10.5-ounce) cream of mushroom soup
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
Instructions for the Meatballs:
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees (F).
In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients together. (If you use your clean hands to mix everything, you’ll get a little messy, but you won’t be spending as much time mixing as you would if you use a spoon. Decide what’s best for you).
Shape the meat mixture into 1-inch meatballs and place onto the baking sheets. Leave at least 2-inches of space between the meatballs.
Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Remove from the oven after cooking and set aside.
If you’d like to freeze the meatballs and save for another day, wait until the meatballs are at room temperature and place in a gallon-sized freezer bag. Store until you’re ready to eat).
Instructions for the Gravy:
In a large saucepan, combine the beef broth and cream of mushroom soup and cook over medium heat. Stir occasionally and cook until heated through.
In a separate bowl, whisk cornstarch and the cold water until smooth. Add this to the soup mixture.
Continue cooking and bring to a boil, stirring constantly to prevent burning. The mixture will start to thicken.
Reduce the heat to low and add the cream slowly. Mix and heat through. Serve the gravy with the meatballs over a delicious plate of noodles, rice, or by themselves.
