Crock-Pot Swedish Meatballs


This recipe is one that has repeatedly received rave reviews from Menu Mailer subscribers. We love it because it is easy, I can get it ready well before dinner if we have an afternoon activity and come home to a cooked meal that the kids are guaranteed to eat.

Meatballs with gravy, what’s not to love?  This speaks comfort food to me.  I’d gladly eat this meal weekly without complaint through the cold months.

I cook the rice ahead and quickly reheat it under hot, running tap water and drain it briefly.  I then quickly sautee some cooking greens I had prepared ahead and stashed in the fridge and we can sit down to a meal fifteen to twenty minutes after we walk in the door.

    Do you think I could use almond flour instead of bread crumbs?

    • I think coconut flour would work better since almond flour doesn’t absorb well. I’d use 2 Tbs coconut flour and add an extra 2 Tbs if it’s needed to get the mixture to hold together.

    When browning the meatballs, is the goal to cook them all the way through? Or just to brown the outside?

    Perfect! Thank you. 🙂
