Crock Pot Swedish Meatballs ~ Quick and Easy Swedish Meatballs for a busy weeknight!

I never knew how hard it was to become a mother. I didn’t have the respect I should have gave to all the mom’s out there before. I may have shrugged off the “Oh I can’t find a babysitter” or “I would rather spend time with my kids” as an excuse before. Now I get it.

Do you ever go to bed and wonder how on earth you are going to climb out of bed and do it all over again? I do. On a regular basis. That’s right. You may think that I’m all “put together” and “got it going on”, but I’m not.

One mom at daycare was commenting on how Miss K was so adorable (right like you have to tell me!?) and then continued to say of course you would have a content adorable child. Seriously? Did I put some fairy dust on me this morning and trick you all into thinking I’m completely organized and wonder woman?

I’m not. I hate to break it to you. I dare you to look at my house on any random night. It’s scary. Wait Halloween is coming. I’m just going with the flow. Not sure what my excuse will be after Halloween!

I’m going through that right now. Most days life is grand and I get through the days, but I also have “episodes” where I wonder how on earth I’m going to keep this up. Something has got to give. But then it gets better and everything comes together. For about a month, then falls apart.

Yup that’s right every month. I’m now coming to the conclusion it’s directly correlated with PMS. UGH. Seriously.


So I’m almost done with this months episode. My hubby is going to jump for joy when this week is over. I sometimes am amazed he still loves me.

It doesn’t help Miss K has been cranky with a touch of a cold. See my child is not perfectly content Ms. Daycare Mommy!

My question is how do you balance everything with kids?

I’ll help you with the supper part! This is perfect for all you hard working, crazy busy moms out there. The crock pot is a magical tool. I LOVE coming home to find the majority of my supper done and I don’t have to think about making something. Just throw this in and you’ll be greeted by the aroma of supper being done when you walk in your front door!

    yummy, the food looks delicious, am now feeling hungry …

  • Camille Beckstrand

    Julie, Your meatballs look delicious! We would love to have you link up to our Strut Your Stuff Saturday at -The Six Sisters

  • katieslanguagecafe

    We are so busy with activities in the fall I am always on the lookout for crock pot recipes as are all the other busy moms i know. please come link this up at my recipe link up? I’d be honored! ~~katie

  • Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made

    Sounds like TRUE comfort food — I just love cooking with my crockpot so I’ll have to add this recipe to my list!

  • Cheryl Peterson

    This recipe sounds great for my upcoming 30th birthday!!! Do you know how many your servings your recipe makes? Thanks 🙂

    • Julie

      My best guess would be 6-8 depending on how big of an appetite your guests have!

  • Amber

    What do you serve with swedish meatballs? Sorry if that sounds like a dumb question… Something tells me mashed potatoes? Please help! Meal planning tonight and looking to add this our menu 🙂

    • Julie Evink

      I serve the Swedish Meatballs over egg noodles and then I serve a veggie with it!

    • Heather

      Traditionally, Swedish meatballs are served with boiled potatoes, gravy, and lingonberry sauce. You can find the latter at Ikea, if your grocery store doesn’t carry it. And it’s yummy!

      • Marianne

        I’m a Swedish mum of two boys (6 & 2) and as Heather correctly described swedish meatballs are traditionally served with boiled potatoes, gravy and Lingonberrys. If you want to try and make them from scratch here’s my mother-in-law’s recipe (that she has used for over 45 years). Not a crocpot dish but will make a really special Sunday dinner (and the gravy is most often served on the side 😉 )
        You will have to use Google to transform the amounts 😉
        1 kg minced meat 50/50 beaf/pork
        1 finely chopped yellow onion (saute’d in butter until soft, then set aside to cool)
        1 whole egg
        1 dl of breadcrumbs
        ~2 tablespoons of potatoflour
        1 dl of milk
        Salt & pepper
        In a large bowl mix together breadcrumbs, milk and potatoflour and let it swell for approx. 10-15 min.
        With your hands gently blend in the minced meat, egg and onion. Season with salt & pepper.
        If the meatballdough is wery wet add up to 2 additional tablespoons of potatoflour.
        Heat up a fryingpan with a good dollop of butter 😉 testfry one meatball to see if you got the seasoning right, then continue rolling meatballs with your hands and frying them on mediumheat until cooked 🙂
        Serve with gravy, boiled potatoes and Lingonberrys…. Enjoy!

  • ChiWei

    I hear ya on the “keeping it together” part! And these meatballs look yum!

  • Joe and Chrissi

    This was a fun recipe! Chrissi and I mixed it up from the your original directions to suit our needs. We used some ground Turkey already in the fridge and made some Turkey Meatballs. Using the directions, Chrissi and I found the sauce to be a little thick and would add a bit more broth to the mixture to thin the sauce down. Adding some Fresh Mushrooms would be fantastic too, though we didn’t add any to ours because we thought of that idea as we were devouring dinner!

  • Sandy

    I fixed this for supper tonight and we really liked it. This was very easy to make. I served with mashed potatoes and green beans. I will be making this one again.

    • Julie Evink

      So glad you liked it Sandy!

  • Robin Liljenquist

    My husband is allergic to mushrooms, do you have any recommendations for substitutes for the soups? Thanks!

  • Maria Murphy

    Hi there. Can you tell me what golden mushroom soup is! Thanks!

    • Julie Evink

      It’s a type of soup and I usually get Campbells you’ll find it in the section with the cream of condensed soups!

  • Melanie

    i would like to know, do you put the meatballs in frozen OR can you make your own and would you put them in the slow cooker raw or cooked?

    • Julie Evink

      If you made your own I would put them in precooked. I usually just put them in frozen, precooked.

  • Jennifer

    Made this tonight and it got rave reviews from a picky husband who generally does not like crockpot meals and two kids (and me too!!). Made enough to feed our family of 4 twice so we’ll freeze the gravy and left over meatballs. We served it over egg noodles but we’ll try mashed potatoes next time. Thanks so much!

    • Julie Evink

      So glad you enjoyed it Jennifer! Makes my night 🙂

  • Lynn Farrell

    Loved seeing this recipe!! It reminds me of my moms favorite recipe for Swedish meatballs. Only difference is she used cream of celery soup instead!! I use whatever cream of soup I have in the closet!’ Thanks for the memories!!’

  • Taylor

    can this be cooked on high in less time? if so, how much time on high?

    • Julie Evink

      If you thaw the meatballs out before cooking this I would think 2-3 hours on high!

  • kmax

    Way too salty! Looked so yummy, but all low-sodium canned goods should be a must with this one!

  • Xenya

    This recipe looks so delicious, I’m going to have my family over tonite for dinner and will be serving this dish…I think it is going to be a big hit! I’ll let you know tomorrow…can’t wait for supper!

  • Steffani Webb

    What size can of beef broth for these swedish meatballs?

  • Shannon

    Can the Ikea cream sauce go in the crockpot with frozen meatballs? Or will it burn? I can’t find this answer anywhere and I don’t want to ruin only pack I have!

    • Julie Evink

      I’m not sure what you are referring to Shannon as there is no “cream sauce” from Ikea in the ingredients?

  • Lita Watson

    Cooking swedish meatball in sauce is the best choice since they start pulling in more of the delicious flavor when they are in sauce.
