For the Meatballs:

  • 500g ground beef
  • 250g ground pork
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

For the Noodles:

  • 250g egg noodles
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Step by Step:

  1. Preparing the Meatballs:
    • Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
    • In a bowl, mix the breadcrumbs and milk. Let them sit for a few minutes until the breadcrumbs absorb the milk.
    • In a larger mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, ground pork, chopped onion, minced garlic, soaked breadcrumbs, egg, salt, black pepper, allspice, and nutmeg.
    • Mix the ingredients thoroughly, but avoid overmixing as it can make the meatballs tough.
    • Shape the mixture into meatballs, about the size of a golf ball.
    • Place the meatballs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the meatballs are cooked through and browned on the outside.
  2. Preparing the Noodles:
    • While the meatballs are baking, cook the egg noodles according to the package instructions.
    • In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
    • Pour in the heavy cream and beef broth, then add the grated Parmesan cheese.
    • Stir the mixture gently until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
    • Season with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences.
    • Let the sauce simmer for a few minutes until it slightly thickens.
  3. Bringing It All Together:
    • Once the meatballs are done baking, carefully place them in the creamy sauce.
    • Drain the cooked noodles and add them to the sauce as well.
    • Gently toss everything together, ensuring the meatballs and noodles are coated with the creamy sauce.


Swedish Baked Meatballs with Noodles is more than just a dish; it’s a testament to the art of culinary fusion.
