Swedish Meatballs

Today I have a lazy day recipe for you.  I’ve been buying the pre-cooked meatballs to save time and the mess.  They are pretty good.  So today giving you a simple recipe using the store bought meatballs and making Swedish meatballs with them. 

Swedish Meatballs

12 Pre-cooked meatballs
1 cup beef stock or broth
1/4 cup sour cream
4 tablespoons butter
1 heaping tablespoon of flour
Splash of Worcestershire sauce
¼ tsp. nutmeg
Salt and pepper to taste
Bag of egg noodles

Boil water and cook the egg noodles per package directions.

Heat butter in medium sauce pan over medium heat with meatballs for 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle flour into the pan, stirring into the butter until absorbed and a roux is formed.

Add a splash Worcestershire and add your beef stock.  Add the nutmeg.

Stir frequently for several minutes until sauce begins to thicken.

Add sour cream and salt and pepper to taste.  Continue to stir for 5 minutes or so until sauce is thickened.

Drain noodles, add a touch of butter, salt and pepper to taste and toss well.  Serve meatballs over the buttered egg noodles. 

Variation -  You may add a can of sliced mushrooms if you like.  

It is OK to have a lazy day once in awhile.  You owe it to yourself.  Have a great lazy day, be happy and may God bless you and yours.
