I decided to combine my two favorites things for dinner last night, we called it easy Swedish meatball casserole. It took no time at all to make. Just one of our quick and easy casseroles. Sponsored by Cooked Perfect Meatballs (originally published 6/17, affiliate links present)

  • Traditionally my grandma made her own meatballs from scratch, and although those were delicious I just don’t have time for that step.

Using frozen meatballs, I can whip up this easy comfort food casserole up in just fifteen minutes.

Throw it in the oven to bubble up while I was busy doing laundry or playing a game with my kids! 😉

Here are some questions you might have before you get started:

What else can you eat meatballs with?

1. Meatballs with sweet and sour sauce is simple 
2. By themselves with a side of pasta like butter noodles 
3. Alone topped with cheese
4. Pull apart bread is a great side dish
5. White rice or quinoa
6. Air fryer vegetables
7. Meatball soup

What is a Swedish meatball?

Of course sauce is the biggest part of the flavoring component that sets these two apart. Italian meatballs are typically served in a tangy tomato sauce (marinara).

Swedish meatballs are cooked in a rich, creamy gravy made with beef or bone broth and sour cream.

Nutritional daily values are based on the recipe cards calculations. I cannot guarantee how accurate they are.
