I am making Swedish Meatballs for dinner. It is Chad’s mom’s recipe. We have it every year for Christmas Dinner, but it’s definitely easy enough to pull off for just a quiet meal at home! I also made them when my friends and I used to do a dinner club. They probably aren’t real authentic, but they are easy and good!
Maria went down for an early nap today, so I prepped the meatballs and will just top with the soup before I put them in the oven tonight.
2 lbs ground beef
1 cup + 1 tbsp plain bread crumbs
1 can evaporated milk (12 oz)
1 can chicken gumbo soup
1 can cream of onion soup
Mix beef, bread crumbs and evaporated milk in large bowl. Make meatballs a little larger than walnuts (I use the Pampered Chef medium scoop). Place in roaster or cake pan. Then mix gumbo and onion soup and spoon over meatballs. (Use all of the soup mixture).
Bake 1 1/2 hours at 325-350. Cover with aluminum foil after first 30 minutes.
