Swedish Meatballs Recipe - Swedish meatballs make a delicious dish served as an appetizer or as a main meal. This family recipe is made from scratch and is a favorite! //

Swedish Meatballs are one of my favorite recipes from childhood that has remained so as an adult. Tender handmade meatballs made from scratch along with a rich, creamy sauce are absolutely delicious and are a definite family favorite! They are simple to make, yet decadent and impressive to serve, while still comforting to enjoy!

Growing up, whenever Mama would make her Swedish Meatballs, I couldn’t wait until time for supper. I’d stand as close by her side as she’d let me as she cooked, rising up on my tip toes to be able to see into the pots and pans the whole time. Finally, when it was time for supper, it always tasted even better than I remembered.

This recipe is made from scratch using simple ingredients, a little time, and a whole lot of love. It is a special appetizer served at parties or as a satisfying meal over mashed potatoes or wide or twirl noodles. While it’s definitely special, this hearty recipe is still simple to make and results in a scrumptious dish perfect for a weeknight meal or even a special occasion!

How to Make Swedish Meatballs


For the Meatballs

  • ground beef
  • garlic
  • onion
  • egg
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • bread crumbs or cracker crumbs
  • fresh parsley (optional)
  • olive oil

For the Sauce

  • butter
  • flour
  • beef stock or broth
  • whole milk – you can use heavy cream for an even richer sauce
  • Worcestershire sauce – you can also use coconut aminos
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • fresh parsley (optional)

Step by Step Instructions

For the Meatballs

  1. Mix all the ingredients for the meatballs and set aside.
  2. Using a scoop or spoon, form meatballs from the ground beef mixture. Heat a skillet or saute pan over medium heat. Lightly coat the bottom of the skillet with a drizzle of enough olive oil to prevent meatballs from sticking.
  3. Drop the meatballs into the heated skillet, and turn occasionally to make sure that all sides of the meatball have browned. This should take about 7 to 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the meatballs from the skillet or pan and drain on a plate lined with paper towels.

For the Sauce

  1. Reduce the heat on the skillet or  pan to medium-low heat. Melt the butter and whisk in flour until it turns golden brown.
  2. Then slowly whisk in the beef broth and cook until thickened. Then add in milk or cream, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, and salt.
  3. Continue to stir the sauce until all ingredients are well-combined.
  4. Add the cooked meatballs back into the skillet, turning to coat them well with the rich, delicious sauce. Add fresh parsley, if desired.

How to Serve Swedish Meatballs

We always love our Swedish Meatballs served over egg noodles or mashed potatoes. When we hosted a Rotary student from Sweden a few years ago, she made sure that we served it with a bit of Lingonberry Jam that she’d brought with her from home. Talk about delicious!

How to Store

Allow to cool and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Recipe Review


  1. This looks so good! I need to add this to my rotation cause I know my husband would love. I’m also still eyeing your chicken souvlaki. 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    I love Swedish meatballs and this is the perfect recipe! My family gobbled these up. I added a little bit of fresh nutmeg to the sauce. I can’t wait to make these again! Thanks!

  3. 5 stars
    These meatballs and your weeknight black bean chili have become regulars at my house. They are both BiG hits with my 7 and 4 year old kiddos. The hubs too. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Hi! I’d been meaning to try this recipe for ages, finally got around to trying it tonight.
    I’m not a big cook (love to eat, but more of a baker), so maybe this is just lack of experience, but I had a really hard time with the meatballs falling apart as I was turning them while cooking.
    I’ve made meatballs one other time and didn’t have this problem, so I’m just wondering if you have any tips? I followed you recipe exactly.

    1. I would add an egg to help bind them. Also, I have gone to oven baking my meatballs for any recipe. I line a baking sheet with foil, spray it with a little Pam, make 1 and a half inch meatballs and bake at 400 for about 20 minutes. And just toss the foil so no clean up.

    1. Hi Joe,
      You will brown all sides of the meatballs before you make the sauce. They should be thoroughly cooked before you put them in the sauce. When they go in the sauce, you will just turn them to make sure they are all well covered and then remove from heat. I hope you enjoy them – Thanks!

  5. Hi Robyn,

    What you are making are not Swedish Meatballs. If you check on line you will see that almost all recipes for Swedish Meatballs have ground pork and ground beef and also most importantly it always has allspice, nutmeg and ginger or a combination of them. What you have given us is a recipe for meatballs, not Swedish. The spice is what makes them distinctive. I have been making my grandmother’s recipe for over 50 years. Please try one of the recipes with allspice and you will see how good they can be.

    1. 4 stars
      She said this was her grandmother’s recipe… Not Nancy’s recipe. Get off your high horse. People like you are why I hate the internet.

    2. 5 stars
      She was merely pointing out the truth. No one should take it personally. It really wouldn’t be a Swedish meatball if it doesn’t have the all spice and nutmeg. Just like it wouldn’t be an Italian meatball without specific ingredients like Parmesan and parsley. A cheeseburger wouldn’t be a cheeseburger without cheese. Etc. regardless it’s a good recipe!

  6. 5 stars
    Question: Is it possible the measurements of salt and pepper are flipped in the sauce recipe? I just made this for my family, and all our mouths are now on FIRE! It’s really good aside from that, hahaha.

    1. Hi Dawn,
      Thank you so much for finding that! You are right and I’ve corrected it in the recipe now. I’m so glad you told me, but I’m glad you liked it besides that.
      Thanks again! xo

    2. Hi Robyn,

      You’re so welcome! It’s like I told my husband, mistakes happen to us all! We trust you {and your recipes} – you have never let us down before, so I figured I’d better say something. How could I not? Thank you for all your amazing recipes, Robyn!!

    1. Thanks so much, Minnie! I thrilled that you love them! It’s always been one of my favorites! xo

  7. Hi Linda,
    There was a mistake in the directions. Thank you so much for catching that and letting me know. I have corrected the directions. It should not have said to add vanilla to the dough. Thank you!

  8. 5 stars
    My meatballs are browning as I type this, and they’re looking good! I also made your homemade Teriyaki sauce this weekend, and it was simple and delicious. Keep the great recipes coming! 🙂

    1. I’m thrilled you enjoy the recipes, Brenda! These meatballs are one of my favorites my Mama made when I was growing up. I really appreciate your comment! Thanks so much! xo

  9. Swedish or not these are delish and super easy for a weeknight dinner! Thank you for sharing. Take care. God Bless.

    1. Thanks so much Linda! This is my Mama’s recipe that we’ve always loved. We aren’t Swedish – we’re Southern, but they sure are a favorite! God bless you as well, Linda! xo

  10. My sauce was SO thin!! I followed directions exactly. Maybe I didn’t let my butter, flour, and beef broth mixture thicken enough before adding cream…? I whisked it for at least 5 minutes before adding the cream though.

    1. Hi Andrea,
      I’m sorry your sauce turned out thin. It’s important to whisk & brown the flour into the melted butter, then slowly add the beef broth and cook until thickened before adding the other ingredients. I hope this helps. Thanks!

  11. 5 stars
    I made these wonderful meatballs mainly to have as left-overs for the weekend. Oh my goodness–DELISH!! I changed up the technique by baking the meatballs at 350 degrees for 25 min, so I could make the gravy at the same time. My hubs arrived home late last night from a business trip and ate a bowl full, and said he was in heaven :0) I also doubled the recipe. So happy to find your blog, and this awesome recipe!!

    1. Hi Marla,
      I’m so happy you gave these a try and enjoyed them! They’ve been a family favorite for so many years! Thanks so much! xo

  12. The sauce is so yummy with mushrooms and in it well. I also love it over mashed cauliflower or potatoes.

  13. 5 stars
    These are the best meatball recipe I have found in 40 years of cooking. I used panko bread crumbs and soaked them in milk, just enough to dampen the crumbs. The meatballs were seared on the outside and so tender on the inside. The gravy recipe the best. It never occurred to me to at Worcestershire sauce in my gravy. Thank you for sharing!

    1. My Mama has made these for many years and we’ve always loved them. I’m thrilled that you enjoyed them too! Thank you so much, Paula! xo

    2. Did you drain the left over grease from the meatballs or do you use it as part of the sauce?

  14. 5 stars
    I was awesome. I made it for the wife and I for dinner , and normally it would be 4 servings. but we loved it. Thank you and your momma.

    1. I’m so happy you and your wife enjoyed it, Michael! Thanks so much for letting me know! 🙂

  15. 5 stars

    1. So happy you enjoyed it! It’s always been one of our family favorites too, Amelia! Thanks so much! xo

    This is my Grandmothers recipe. She is from Norway. She even uses a cup of Ritz crackers so it’s nice to see that here. I am a chef and this is the only recipe I use for Swedish Meatballs. I rarely use on-line recipes, especially with my experience, however, READERS: This one is a guarantee. If you have more than three mouths to feed, double the recipe and add 2 cups of crushed Ritz. It will get eaten and it pairs well over egg noodles tossed with olive oil. Hats off to Robyn’s Mamma and thanks for the post.

    1. I am so excited to hear that you enjoy and use this recipe, Jamie! It’s always been a favorite recipe of my Mama’s – my whole family loves it! So neat to see that it’s how your Grandmother has always made it too! Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know you enjoy it!

  17. This looks like a great recipe which I will definitely make, especially the sauce! (beats Campbell’s cream of mushroom soup).
    One thing I do when I make meat balls is, instead of doing them in a pan in oil where I find they fall apart, I put them on a cookie sheet and bake them in the oven (350 for 20 minutes of so). When we farmed, I’d make a big batch and then I could put the ‘balls’ in bags and freeze them.

    1. Hi Donna,
      I hope you enjoy this! It’s been a favorite in our family for so many years!
      Baking is a good way to make meatballs sometimes, but in this case I like them browned in the skillet so that the flavors from browning the meatballs adds to the tasty sauce mixture. So good!
      Thanks so much! Enjoy them! xo

    2. Hi Jodi
      Sorry if your meatballs didn’t stay together. I’ve not had that problem with them falling apart so I’m not sure what could have happened. Thanks!

  18. These sound so delicious! I like that you share so many family recipes, btw. I love to share my family’s recipes – so many good memories and it’s neat how everyone makes things a little differently!

  19. 5 stars
    My 12 year old Son and I made this dish for dinner a few hours ago. It was delicious and wonderful to make together. Thank you! We will be adding this to our fortnightly meal plan

    1. I also wanted to share we made our own breadcrumbs by toasting two slices of bread and grinding it

  20. 5 stars
    Made these on a whim after watching a bbc program and searching for a high rated recipe! This nailed it! I broke my sauce the first go…but, remade it slower….I would recommend this recipe!!

  21. Thank you for this delicious recipe! I would love to freeze some for later – when would you recommend that in the preparation process? Thank you!

  22. 5 stars
    Omg! i just made these Swedish goodies for my family! I have 6 kids and a hungry hubbie;) I felt as though doubling the recipe wasn’t enough. I served them on ziti and creamed spinach and they were the highlight of the meal! Thanks so much! My kids (Jordan, Allie, Camilla, Dustin, Felix, and Chyna) say that it’s their favorite dinner! Finally, something they will eat. :). The gravy… ooohhhh so good! I recommend in addition to parsley put sage! It makes them so delicate!!! I never had the falling apart problem but the oven sounds ok if you are. My husband is a born and raised swede so if he says they are “just perfect” then i assure you they are! highly recommend! BFN (bye for now),


    1. I’m absolutely tickled to see this comment, Daniella-Basil!
      My mother made them all throughout my childhood and we always got so excited when these were for supper! While my born and raised southern family adores these meatballs, I’m certainly happy to see that your husband who is Swedish says they’re perfect to him too!!!
      How wonderful that your children all enjoy this – (what awesome names they have!) it’s always a plus when the kids love something!
      I can’t wait to share your comment with my Mama. I know she’ll love hearing this!
      Thanks so much! xo

  23. I have never successfully made gravy until tonight. Thank you for sharing rhis recipe. It was a hit in my house and will be a staple!

    1. Yay, Meka!
      I’m thrilled that you gave this a try and enjoyed it so much! It’s been a staple in our family for decades and I’m happy to hear it sounds like it will be in your house too! Thanks! xo

    1. Hi Emily,
      I am not sure how far in advance you’d like to make them, but if you need to freeze them I’d suggest making meatballs, then freezing the meatballs in an airtight container. When time to make for party, thaw the meatballs, then reheat them in pan, then proceed with rest of recipe instructions to make the sauce.
      Hope you enjoy them! Thanks!

  24. Gonna make this for my annual Christmas party! Quadrupling the recipe. I will let you know how it goes!! Wish me luck.:)

  25. 4 stars
    Very good! I added 1 T. sour cream and a few dashes of nutmeg to amp up the sauce, because I was using pre-made frozen meatballs and therefore didn’t get the tasty bits from sautéing them. Served over German style noodles.

  26. I’m going to try this for dinner. But I will be adding nutmeg due to my meatballs being frozen. And I will also be adding sour cream and mushrooms. That’s what my grandmother use to do with hers.But there is three of us and we all like a lot of sauce. If i double your recipe will that be way to much sauce and not enough noodles?

    1. Hi Christina,
      Yum! I wish I was at your house tonight for supper. That sounds scrumptious! I think doubling it sounds wonderful. I might increase the noodles a bit as well, but not double if you like more sauce than noodles in your Swedish Meatballs. xo

    2. 4 stars
      I have a teenage food critic at home lol but she enjoyed it very much. We all did. Thank you very much for sharing this meal with us.

    3. I have one of those, too! 🙂 I’m so glad your entire family enjoyed it. When everyone loves a meal, it is always the best feeling!!! xo

  27. 5 stars
    Nom nom! I love these meatballs..I just added half a pack of onion soup mix to the mixture cuz I didn’t have any onions..turned out so good! Also served mine over white jasmine rice instead of noodles, with some fresh green beans..delish!

  28. 5 stars
    Oh my gosh! Delicious! I never made them before but wanted to try and your recipe was spot on! My daughter and I ate every bite! Thanks sooo much for sharing! #food #delicious #meatballs #swedishmeatballs #loveandcooking #sharing

    Loved it!!! I have made this recipe 6 times now and my whole family absolutely loves it!! The only thing i do different is that I used 5 tbs butter instead of 3 and it makes the sauce a bit thicker. Otherwise amazing!!!

  31. 5 stars
    Thank you, just made this, they were so good. Went a bit heavy on the salt and pepper but otherwise, followed right to the letters. For the thin sauce comments, add the broth, and the milk real slow, incrementally while stirring and yall should be fine. Will be making this quite a bit, the house loved it. Thanks again.

    1. So glad you enjoyed them, Nick! They’ve been a favorite in my family for years! Thanks! 🙂

  32. 5 stars
    Tried this recipe a few months ago and it is now a go-to staple! I absolute love the sauce! I had a hard time with the meatballs falling apart, although the flavor of them is wonderful. I have been using premade meatballs since then, but I will try again with the homemade when I have time to figure out how to keep them together. I do add an extra beef bullion cube for a bit more flavor, but that is just my personal preference. Thank you for the recipe!

  33. Well just made but put in oven for now! Can you tell me how many meatballs per serving??? Watching my carbs. thanks

    1. Hi Cindy,
      The recipe serves 6, so it will depend on the size you make your meatballs. But if you follow the recipe exactly, you can just divide the recipe into those 6 servings to figure your nutritional information per serving. Enjoy! xo

  34. 5 stars
    I add a pinch of freshly ground allspice to my swedish meatballs, too, for an authentic Swedish taste. Sometimes I add it to the meat for the meatballs, sometimes I add it to the sauce. Both are good!

    My paternal grandmother was a full-blood swede and she added allspice and nutmeg to all kinds of meat dishes. Usually allspice was for beef and nutmeg was for pork dishes. She would make apples, blackberries and onions fried in butter and add a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg to go with pork chops or a pork loin roast. Sometimes she would fry sauerkraut in the pork chop pan after the chops had browned and she would add just a titch of nutmeg. YUM!

      Yes they can!  I just found this recipe today and made it for dinner.  Used a bag of Great Value Homestyle, and doubled the sauce recipe.  My daughter isn’t in heaven.

  35. 5 stars
    This recipe turned out nicely for me. I used a meatloaf mix of beef, pork and veal from Meiers, and the milk and egg and bread crumbs made them nice and tender. I did use some fresh grated nutmeg, garlic powder instead of grating fresh, and I sauted the onions in some butter before adding. I bake my meatballs on a sheet pan covered with foil @375 for about 15 minutes because I don’t like turning them and having them break apart in the frying pan. Doubled the gravy because I had 2lbs of meat. Perfect fall comfort food, served with homestyle egg noodles and cranberry sauce.

  36. 5 stars
    The recipe worked really well and it tastes amazing! Just a tip for you all: put in some ground nutmeg and it’ll taste even more Swedish.

  37. 5 stars
    Cooked these meatballs tonight. Instead of adding pepper to the sauce I used 1 x tsp dijon, together with 1 tsp wild blueberry jam.
    Fantastic recipe. Thank you so much.

  38. I made this for my family tonight and they really enjoyed it. The sauce tasted great and was not too heavy. I am a dad who cooks on occasion and I found the recipe easy to follow. The only suggestion I got was from my oldest daughter who thought the meatballs needed a little “kick”. Next time I might try a little allspice or some other seasoning. All in all great recipe that I will be making again.

    1. Glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed it Arron! Thanks so much for letting me know!

    I made these for dinner last night and everyone thought it was delicious! I served it over mashed potatoes. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I’ll definitely be making it again.

    Found this recipe this afternoon and made it for dinner.  Didn’t make my own meatballs this time but definitely will next time.  And there WILL be a next time!  My daughter is in HEAVEN!

    1. I don’t use nutmeg in this recipe, but if you wish to add it to yours you can. Thanks MJ!

  41. Can I make this one day I in advance; i.e., serve the the following day….or is it best made and served on the same day?
    Sheila G.

  42. They really aren’t swedish meatballs without the nutmeg. I’m sure they are delicious,
    but not Swedish Meatballs.

    1. You can definitely include the nutmeg if you prefer. I’m sensitive to nutmeg and do not include. Thanks for mentioning.

  43. Good basic sauce recipe, but a few other items kicked in will really amp up the flavor. Nutmeg definitely helps, although I understand the sensitivities. It’s easy to overdo it, especially with fresh ground, which is the only way you should use it. Just a handful of light scrapes on the rasp, maybe not even 1/8th of a teaspoon, is all you need. Just a nudge. Also needs about a teaspoon of ground cardamom and, in my opinion, about 1/4 cup of sour cream. Add those and you’ll really have the well rounded Swedish meatball flavor you’re looking for!

    1. Thanks, Gary. I’m sure if you can have nutmeg, some would like this addition. However, there are some people like me who can’t eat nutmeg at all so I don’t add it to my recipe.

  44. Could you please tell how many meatballs are in a serving in the Nutrition section? You told how many calories are in a serving but not how many meatballs are in a serving

  45. Delicious recipe!
    I followed the advice of some of the viewers and “added” some freshly ground nutmeg to the ground beef “prior” to cooking the Swedish meatballs. The NUTMEG does make a big difference in the FLAVOR profile; however, one must be CAREFUL not to ADD TO MUCH of this very pungent spice. Just a PINCH goes a long way! ;-D *P.S. If you are sensitive to spices such as ALLSPICE, NUTMEG, CARDAMON, Etc. do as Robyn suggests: OMIT THEM! lol

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet words, Lolliwink. I’m sensitive to nutmeg so my mother nor I ever add it to the Swedish meatballs. It is perfectly fine if you want to add but I agree you need to be careful with the amount you add.

    2. 5 stars
      This is the best comfort food recipe ever! Thank you so much. I didn’t change a thing and I make it quite often. Yummmmy!

    This such an easy and delicious sweedish meatmall recipe. I highly recommend trying this. I did use frozen meatballs but followed the gravy recipe. Everyone loved it!

  47. I was wondering if anyone has made this in a slow cooker? If so, did it come out just as good and how long did you cook it for? Thanks!

  48. 5 stars
    Best recipe for Swedish meatballs sauce. I did one teaspoon of stone ground Dijon mustard for a smudge more tang.
    Definitely a “keeper”.

  49. We had this last night for dinner. Confession: We had a bag of Ikea Meatballs in our freezer, so we used those with a doubled recipe of the sauce from this recipe and it was very good. (And we froze a container of leftovers for another meal!) Next time we’ll have to try both meatballs and sauce. Thank you for a great recipe!

    Swedish meatballs is one of my favorite meals. I used frozen meatballs but made the sauce. If was delicious!!! Thank you!!!

    Bought the meatballs from IKEA. Made this sauce and it’s so easy and delicious! I’m going to make the meatballs from this recipe next time!

  52. Very easy to make and all ingredients are pantry friendly. Sauce was a little thick, but used sour cream and a touch of milk to thin it out. Will make regularly! Thank you!

  53. 5 stars
    My family absolutely loves this meal! Have you (or anyone) ever made the meatballs and sauce in advance and frozen it? I wasn’t sure if it would turn out or if the sauce would get weird.

    1. Brooke, I am not sure how far in advance you’d like to make them, but if you need to freeze them I’d suggest making meatballs, then freezing the meatballs in an airtight container. When time to make for party, thaw the meatballs, then reheat them in pan, then proceed with rest of recipe instructions to make the sauce. I have not tried freezing the sauce.

    Almost too much salt

    The beef broth has salt if I make again I would eliminate the salt in the gravy

    It was so good

    If you need gf sub cornstarch instead of flour

  55. Just discovered this site “ADD A PINCH”,love the replies and comments along with suggestions ,And of course RECIPES

  56. This looks delicious – my daughter and I have had to change our diet to gluten/dairy free due to food allergies – do you think it would work well with GF flour and perhaps coconut milk? From what I understand canned coconut milk is a bit creamier than the refrigerated kind. Thank you!

    1. Pam, I haven’t tried making this with coconut milk but I think this should work with the canned coconut milk and gluten free flour. Let me know how it turns out if you do try it.

    To be honest I just used the recipe for the sauce and it was excellent. I used President’s Choice Swedish Meatballs and served it over egg noodles with a salad. It was awesome!
