I don’t care what time of year it is I am all about easy meals, and absolutely love casseroles! Swedish meatballs are a favorite in my house, and remind me of my childhood because it is something my grandmother made every time we went to visit! I decided to combine these two favorites for dinner last night and came up with this easy Swedish Meatball Casserole that took no time at all. This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cooked Perfect® Meatballs. All opinions are 100% mine. (originally published 6/17)
Traditionally my grandma made her own meatballs from scratch, and although those were delicious I just don’t have time for that step.
Using Cooked Perfect® Meatballs I can whip up this easy comfort food casserole up in just fifteen minutes and throw it in the oven to bubble up while I was busy doing laundry or playing a game with my kids! 😉
Here are the main ingredients I used to make this easy Swedish meatball casserole
- Cooked Perfect® Meatballs
- Crispy fried onions
- Egg noodles
- Dijon mustard
You can Find Cooked Perfect Meatballs in your local grocery store in the freezer section and they come in a variety of flavors. They even have a Swedish version, though I used this Angus Beef Meatballs this time and it was just as delicious.
Just three minutes in the microwave warms the entire bag up, add them to your creamy sauce, into a casserole dish topped with crispy fried onions and you’re ready to pop it in the oven for just twenty minutes. If you’re a busy mom like me who loves hearty, feel-good meals you’ve got to try this easy Swedish Meatball Casserole recipe, you won’t be disappointed (and your kids will love it too…bonus).
