How to Make Swedish Meatballs with German Egg Noodles
I first made this recipe many, many years ago. It was with the help of Betty Crocker. Times have changed, though, and since then, I’ve made a few adjustments to this recipe to make it one of my family favorite meals.
This recipe starts with homemade beef meatballs. This is an extra step but well-worth the effort. Then, it’s just a matter of adding the rest of the ingredients, one by one.
So what makes this recipe so special? I believe it has to do with being one of those comfort recipes from bygone eras. There’s something delicious about a one pot meal that’s so simple to make. And, if you make a few batches of meatballs ahead of time, you can pull out what you need and cook them up in the sauce when you’re pressed for time–easy peasy.
Doubling this recipe requires just a little more prep but the same ease of effort as the original recipe. Which is why this dish should be included a potluck events. All you’d need to do is keep it warm in a crockpot or Nesco. Serve it piping hot and enjoy!
