Swedish Meatballs are among my favorite comfort foods! The delicious meatballs, creamy sauce and buttered egg noodles are so wonderful and satisfying! Swedish Meatballs are a great dish to make for your family or if you’re having company. It’s also a fantastic dish to bring to a pot luck dinner.
Swedish Meatballs also freeze well. Either freeze the meatballs, sauce and cooked egg noodles together or simply freeze the meatballs and sauce without the noodles. Then, cook the noodles as you serve the meatballs! This is a simple dish that’s sure to please!
