Slow Cook Swedish Meatballs

Slow-Cook Swedish Meatballs

Swedish meatballs are versatile and economical to prepare for a big crowd. They can be served as hot appetizers with a side of grape jelly for dipping or with mashed potatoes for a true comfort-food feast. For a traditional Scandinavian meal, serve these tender meatballs on top of riced potatoes. Garnish them with a heaping spoonful of sour cream and a sprinkle of fresh or dried dill. A salad of pickled beets and onions is the perfect accompaniment to keep with the Scandinavian theme. Another fun serving suggestion is to roll meatballs, roasted peppers and thinly sliced red onions in flat bread for a delicious lunch. Our Swedish meatballs are made in the slow cooker with the help of organic extra virgin coconut oil to make sure they come out juicy and delicious.
