Really Quick Swedish Meatballs

5 Nov

Really quick both in cooking time and posting time–lots going on today. I wasn’t going to post anything this morning, but I made a batch of these up for my in-laws (they’re my mother-in-law’s favorite) and they smelled so good and were so easy that I figured y’all might like them too.

I can easily see these over egg noodles with a little butter, or in a stroganoff-type sauce. I can also envision making these in the oven and popping them into a Crockpot on the warm setting for a party. Next time, I’ll make double and freeze a bunch for another time. They’re simple and good. 🙂

You’ll need:

1 (ish) pound lean ground beef

1 egg

1/4 cup plain bread crumbs or 1 slice bread, crumbled

1/2 cup milk (I used rice milk to sidestep a lactose allergy, and it was fine)

1/4 medium sweet onion, finely diced

1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground pepper

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet (with sides) with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, lightly beat the egg. Add the rest of the ingredients. Fold gently with your hands until it’s all blended together. Form mixture into ping-pong sized balls and line up on the baking sheet, with a little room between them (I got 28 on a regular cookie sheet). Bake for 15 minutes until browned on top and done in the middle. Enjoy.
