For the Swedish Meatballs:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

For the Creamy Noodles:

  • 8 ounces egg noodles
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups beef or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh dill, for garnish (optional)


Step 1: Prepare the Swedish Meatballs

  1. In a bowl, combine the breadcrumbs and milk. Let them sit for a few minutes to allow the breadcrumbs to absorb the milk.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix the ground beef, ground pork, finely chopped onion, finely chopped fresh parsley, egg, allspice, nutmeg, salt, and black pepper. Add the breadcrumb-milk mixture and gently combine all the ingredients until well mixed.
  3. Shape the meat mixture into small meatballs, about 1 inch in diameter.

Step 2: Bake the Meatballs

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Place the meatballs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until they are cooked through and have a golden-brown color.

Step 3: Cook the Egg Noodles

  1. While the meatballs are baking, cook the egg noodles according to the package instructions. Drain and set them aside.

Step 4: Prepare the Creamy Sauce

  1. In a large skillet, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat.
  2. Stir in the all-purpose flour to create a roux, cooking for about 2 minutes until it’s golden brown.
  3. Gradually whisk in the beef or vegetable broth and heavy cream, ensuring there are no lumps.
  4. Let the mixture simmer until it thickens, which should take about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

Step 5: Combine and Serve

  1. Add the baked Swedish meatballs to the creamy sauce. Gently mix them together and let them simmer for a few more minutes.
  2. Serve the Swedish Baked Meatballs over the cooked egg noodles.
  3. Garnish with fresh dill if desired for a touch of freshness and color.


Swedish Baked Meatballs with Noodles is a comforting classic that brings the cozy flavors of Scandinavia to your table. The well-seasoned meatballs are baked to perfection and paired with creamy noodles, creating a dish that’s both hearty and delicious. This recipe is perfect for a family dinner or a special occasion when you want to savor a taste of Sweden at home.
