Swedish Meatballs

These are sooooo good! I always serve them with potatoes and corn. My “farmer” meal, LOL. They can be a little time-consuming, but can also be made ahead of time and put in the fridge or freezer, then heated up in the oven. I suggest using the 80% hamburger, because you actually want some grease when you brown the meatballs, to use for the gravy.

For fast meals — prepare this a day or two ahead of time, leave the casserole dish in the fridge. Scrub potatoes, poke with a fork, and microwave 5-10 minutes (depending on size of the potato). Wrap in foil and put in fridge. When ready to start dinner, set your oven to 400 and put meatballs and potatoes in for 30-40 minutes. Heat up a vegetable or prepare whatever sides you want!!
