Slow cooker oops
The pre-cooked meatballs do NOT require four hours on "HIGH" in a slow cooker! I was doubtful to begin with, as stovetop cooking instructions call for only 15 minutes(!) but I tossed everything in the CrockPot for convenience. I checked the meatballs after 90 minutes and by then the sauce was bubbling and reduced in quantity (added 1/3 cup water) and meatballs were steaming. Because the dish was ready ahead of time, I held it on warm until serving time and it was "okay" (not what I expected) but don't know if the flavor was the same as if the sauce had not been over-cooked.
Use frozen Cooked Perfect Swedish Style Meatballs
There's never any left!
I have also have put in a red onion and cooked bacon at times. YUMMY !
The only one we make
I got this recipe 3 years ago. It is a hit at every gathering and the only meatball recipe I make now.
Years ago I went to Oceanspray in Massachusetts and they had this in their tasting room but with LiL Smokies! I make both types for get togethers and they are the first to go!
Go to potluck dish
This is my go to potluck dish. Every time I make it there are no leftovers. People love it and it is so easy to make. I like to cook it in the crockpot and it only takes a few minutes to prep and is easy to double for larger groups.
