Who here loves MEATBALLS?

My husband’s family has always loved meatballs considering they are from Sweden and Swedish Meatballs are a staple for many of their family get togethers and holidays. I’m not proud to admit this, but I have never tried their meatballs as of yet (we haven’t been back to Arizona for a Swedish Christmas get together in 3 years). It’s pretty pathetic, I know, but since moving to Texas I have developed a love for meatballs. This all happened last New Year’s Eve when we were hanging out with friends and my friend, Marie, made some Crock Pot Meatballs. They smelled so stinkin’ delicious I knew I had to give them a try, and I did… and I fell in love! 12 meatballs later and I was insistent that I get the recipe. She gave it to me with no hesitation and we’ve made them a few times since.

My husband is especially fond of the recipe and has requested it a few times since that New Years get together, and I’m glad he does because they are so good! Can’t wait to try out other versions and make more meatball recipes.

Hey Kristyn these look yummy and so easy. Now these aren’t Swedish meatballs are they? I wasn’t sure!! But regardless I will be making them!! Thanks as usual for all your yum recipes!!

    Lil' Luna

    These are just regular frozen meatballs, but any kind will work:) They are super yummy and yes, very easy to make! Hope yo like them as much as we did!!

Stephanie

Do you think i could make my own meatballs freeze them & finish them with your sauce & crockpot them ? Would this work ?

    Lil' Luna

    I haven’t tried that, but I don’t see why not:) I’m sure homemade meatballs would be delicious! Good luck!!

Hi Kristyn,

Looks yummy, but my only question would be is how spicy is this considering the chili sauce in the ingredients as we don’t handle spicy too well in this family?

Cheers,
John

    Lil' Luna

    They weren’t too spicy. You can always add a little less chili sauce or maybe a little more ketchup. Hope you give them a try!! Thanks for stopping by!

Podria decirme el peso de la bolsa de albondigas
Gracias

    Lil' Luna

    No puedo recordar el tamano exacto, pero es una gran bolsa. Creo que la bolsa mas grande es de 60 onzas, asi que tal vez la bolsa que utilice fue cerca de 30 onzas. Espero que ayude!! Gracias!!

Mary

These look so good but, how large is a large bag, ounces or pounds?

    Lil' Luna

    It is a 20 ounce bag, but I believe they have a bigger bag, too. I hope that helps! Good luck!
