swedish meatballs

I checked the memories but don't see anything for this. Does anyone have a crock pot recipe for Swedish Meatballs? My fiance suggested I make that for dinner tonight but I can't find a crock recipe and I'd rather do it in the crock.

Crockpot Swedish Meatballs

* 1 1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs
* 1 cup milk or half-and-half
* 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck or round
* 1/2 lb. lean ground pork, or use all beef
* 2 eggs
* 1 med. onion, chopped fine
* 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
* 1/4 tsp. allspice
* 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
* 1/8 tsp. pepper
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 10 1/2 oz. can condensed beef broth
* 2 tablespoons flour
* 2 tablespoons melted butter

Soak bread crumbs in milk for 5 minutes in a large mixing bowl. Add ground beef and pork, eggs, onion, 1 1/4 teaspoon salt, nutmeg, and allspice; mix well. Shape into 1 inch meatballs. Place meatballs on rack in broiler pan and bake for 15 minutes at 400°.

Put browned meatballs in slow cooker. Add 1/2 can beef broth, pepper and remaining salt. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours. To thicken gravy, turn slow cooker to high. Combine butter and flour to make a smooth paste. Add paste to remaining 1/2 can beef broth and pour over meatballs. Cook until thickened, about 45 minutes.

Crockpot Swedish Meatballs 2

* 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
* 1/4 pound Jimmy Dean sausage (or favorite ground sausage)
* 1 egg
* 1/4 cup ketchup
* 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
* 1 tablespoon dry mustard
* 1 tablespoon soy sauce
* 1 clove garlic, minced
* 2 teaspoons salt
* 1 teaspoon pepper

* Sauce:
* 2 cans Cream of Mushroom soup
* 1 cup sour cream
* 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
* 1 dash Tabasco sauce
* 1/4 cup milk

Mix all ingredients together for the meat mixture. Shape into small meatballs and place on baking sheet or jelly roll pan. Make sure you use a pan with sides. Bake at 375° 45 to 60 minutes, or until browned. In a medium bowl mix sauce ingredients together.

Place meatballs and sauce in a crockpot. Cook on HIGH for 30 to 45 minutes, until meatballs are cooked through. May be used as main dish served over rice or noodles or as an appetizer served with toothpicks.

Re: Crockpot Swedish Meatballs
I don't have an onion or beef broth. Do you think I can substitute onion soup mix and beef bouillon cubes?

I don't see why you couldn't use onion soup mix, as I've done that before! Just know that you'll be putting more SALT in the recipe.

When I didn't have an onion, the onion soup mix did come in handy. I omitted the salt in the recipe, divided the onion soup mix into 2 parts, put the first half into the meatballs--and the other half into about 1 1/4 cups hot water (to substitute for the beef broth) to cover the meatballs.

Wow. Looking at that now, it looks like a long process...lol! Hope this helps, though.

I almost never use fresh onion in crockpot recipes. I usually use dried onion because it reconstitutes so well over the period of time it has to cook in a crock. 1T dried = 1/4C fresh. :)

Grape Jelly Meatballs! (holiday meatballs)

* 1 1/2 cups chili sauce
* 1 cup grape jelly (can use currant jelly)
* 1 to 3 teaspoons Dijon mustard
* 1 pound lean ground beef
* 1 egg, lightly beaten
* 3 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
* 1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine chili sauce, grape jelly, and mustard in Crock Pot and stir well. Cook, covered, on high while preparing meatballs to bake.

Combine remaining meatball ingredients and mix thoroughly. Shape into 30 meatballs. Bake meatballs in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes; drain well. Add meatballs to sauce, stir to coat, cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 7 hours.

I love these and most holiday parties serve as appitizers but can be good for dinner too!

Don't get grossed out by the jelly - it's really good.

Re: Grape Jelly Meatballs! (holiday meatballs)
I agree; it really is very good!

Thanks for posting this recipe; I accidentally deleted a few recipes some months ago--and this was one of them!

Re: Grape Jelly Meatballs! (holiday meatballs)
I just came across this post, and am looking to do this myself. Do you think it will work well with frozen pre-made meatballs?

When in doubt, trust Alton. Though not technically for a crockpot, I'm sure it can be easily adapted.
