Swedish Meatballs with White Rice

Updated on July 22, 2013

Homemade Meatballs

Swedish meatballs can be made with either ground beef or ground turkey. They are great when served over egg noodles or with rice. This recipe is incredibly filling and can be made in three different ways. If you do not feel like making the meatballs from scratch. Pre-cooked meatballs can be found in most grocery stores. Or you can buy them frozen in the frozen food section of the store

The sauce is can also be made in a variety of ways. You can either buy beef bouillon cubes or buy a can of Campbell's Beef Bouillon. The sour cream can either be low fat or not.

I like to pour the meatballs and sauce over the rice or egg noodles. Or you can serve them as a side to the meatballs.

Let's get cooking!

Home Made Meatballs


1 Large Skillet

1 large mixing bowl

1 egg

1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey

1 cup of Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs

1 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

2 Tbsp. of Vegetable Oil

First line a large plate with seran wrap to put the raw meatballs on before cooking them. On a seperate plate a large paper towel to absorb the grease.

In large mixing bowl. Mix ground meat,egg,bread crumbs and garlic powder. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together(it's a dirty job but somebody has got to do it). Make sure you mix the ingredients to together well so there isn't any dry bread crumbs in it.. Then using your hands roll the meat into little meatballs. I would say around two and half tablespoons of meat mixture per meatball, should do it. One pound of ground beef or turkey makes around 25 or so meatballs.

Pour vegetable oil in skillet and add raw meatballs and cook over medium heat. I think around 5 minutes on each side is how I get them cooked through. Keep an eye on them and turn them constantly while cooking. So as not to burn them. Once you have all the meatballs cooked and set on the paper towel,you are ready to make the sauce.



1 can of Beef Soup or 1 1/2 cups mixed Beef Boullion cubes mixed with water(per directions)

1 16 oz container of Sour Cream or Lite or Low Fat

In one medium size sauce pan. Heat can of Beef Soup and Sour Cream over medium-low heat. Stir while heating and mix well. Then add pre-cooked meatballs to the sauce. And it's ready to serve over rice or egg noodles.

Prepare white rice or minute rice per directions on the box. Or prepare egg noodles per directions on package.

Next put a bed of rice on each plate and then pour meatball and sauce over each bed of rice or noodles.

This meal easily serves up to four. Perhaps five or six. Depending on how hungry you are.You will want to have dessert two or so hours after it's so filling. Great for cold fall and winter nights.

More ideaS for home made meatballs is. Heated meatballs with Yoshida's Gourmet Sauce. Served as an appetizer with tooth picks inserted in them. Or meatballs with Spaghetti Sauce,for a yummy, meatball sandwich on a hoagie roll. Or there is always the tried and true Spaghetti and Meatballs. Yum, Yum Yum.
