Everyone needs a good Swedish meatball recipe, and this simple slow cooker recipe for Classic Swedish Meatballs will quickly become your go-to. These meatballs are a super simple dish that will be a huge hit at any church potluck or holiday party. Cooking the pork and beef meatballs in the slow cooker makes them incredibly tender and moist. They’re flavored so well and their size makes them the perfect bite-size appetizer. This is also a relatively quick slow cooker recipe, so you could make this last minute for a party or in time for a weekday dinner.

If you want to enjoy the same great flavors of this recipe but don't want to spend a lot of prep time making the meatballs, here's what you can do Simply omit the breadcrumbs and the egg. Brown the ground meats in a skillet, and scoop the meat into the slow cooker using a slotted spoon. Drain some of the fat, reserving a couple of tablespoons for the gravy. Continue to do the gravy in the skillet and add to the slow cooker.

I love Swedish meatballs! I can't wait to try out this recipe. I think it would be great for a board game party.

I was always under the impression that I could not or SHOULD not add my sour cream until the end- the last 15 minutes or so. But in this delicious sounding recipe, she says to add it right along with the meatballs and let it slow cook for the 4 hours. Her recipe uses a combo of beef and pork. I think this will deliver a flavorful and savory meatball! Normally we eat tons of ground turkey in this house and pretty much NO beef.

I have purchased frozen Swedish meatballs before, but I have never made them from scratch. These look and sound delicious. I think I will make them this weekend and serve them with wide egg noodles and a green vegetable. I know my family will love them. I will use a lean ground beef just to cut out some of the fat. Can't wait to make these!

Swedish meatballs are a favorite at our house. I will be making this recipe and serving it with baby potatoes. I love all the spices but would substitute lean ground beef and lean ground pork for fattier regular meat. I would also use lower fat 1% sour cream. Looks delicious!
