One of my favorite dishes is Swedish Meatballs. This one is made with sour cream, noodles and frozen meatballs. If you want, make homemade meatballs.
How do you make Swedish Meatball sauce from scratch?
Welp, you’ll have to keep scrolling to get the actual recipe. But, you make a rue, into a gravy, into the Swedish Meatball sauce. Throw in some meatballs and you got “from scratch”.
What do you eat Swedish Meatballs with?
Traditionally, they are served with mashed or boiled potatoes. Nowadays, myself included, people choose to mix them with noodles. I used egg noodles.
Should I cook meatballs before putting in sauce?
I suggest you cook and/or heat the meatballs in the same pan you intend to make the sauce in. The flavor from the meatballs will carry over to the sauce.
Can you freeze Swedish Meatballs?
Yes you can. Make sure you put it in an airtight container/baggie. Let it come to room temperature before freezing. When ready to reheat, removed from freezer and let come back to room temp before reheating.

- Frying Pan
- Sauce Pan
- 1 bag (28 oz) Frozen Meatballs Turkey, Beef or Pork
- 3 Cup Egg Noodles
- 6 Tbsp Butter
- 1/3 Cup Flour
- 1 Quart Beef Stock 32 oz
- 3/4 Cup Sour Cream
- Salt & Pepper To taste
- Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil. Add noodles. Cook 8-10 Minutes. Drain. Set aside.
- Heat butter in large saute pan at medium high heat. Add meatballs and heat through for about 15 minutes. Remove meatballs from pan. Keep heat on with butter still in pan.
- Slowly whisk flour into the butter to create the roux. Stir until creamy and is the color of coffee with cream.
- Add beef stock slowly, while continuously stirring/whisking. Keep adding until the sauce becomes silky. Be careful not to let the roux seize up. If it starts to seize up, add more liquid and stir faster. 🙂 **My apologies for no picture here. I was assisting this part.
- Add sour cream and stir until combined well. This will lighten the color of your sauce. NOTE: The sauce will still be thin here.
- Place a large pot on the stove and turn the heat up to medium high. Add the meatballs to the pot.
- Pour your sauce in the pot with the meatballs and stir.
- Bring to a slight boil, then reduce and simmer 20 minutes. Stir/check every 5 minutes.
