Swedish Meatballs

Linda Larsen
Holiday dinner menus must be special, a little bit out of the ordinary, beautiful to look at, and delicious. This menu wins on all counts! Swedish Meatballs are simply tender meatballs that are cooked in a creamy white sauce. This delicious recipe isn't traditional, but it certainly is good!

I serve it with some asparagus for the color and flavor, hot cooked rice, fabulous homemade rolls, a gelatin fruit salad, and the best cake ever. Your guests will love this meal. And you'll love how easy it is!

Swedish Meatballs Holiday Dinner Menu

  • Festive Melon and Avocado Cocktail
    Because the dinner is so rich, it's nice to start with something light. This gorgeous appetizer is perfect.
  • Crockpot Swedish Meatballs
    And this recipe cooks in the crockpot, which means that after you assemble it, your work is done! Well, you do have to add some sour cream at the end. But that's easy.
  • Stovetop Rice Pilaf
    I love this recipe because it's more interesting than plain old cooked rice. You can make it with brown or white rice. For brown, cook for 30-35 minutes or until the rice is tender.
  • Honey Rolls
    These soft and slightly sweet rolls are perfect for the beginning baker, because you don't have to knead the dough or shape the rolls.
  • Carrot Pineapple Salad
    This classic gelatin salad has a wonderful fresh taste. The bit of mayonnaise on top adds the perfect finishing touch.
  • Roasted Asparagus
    Asparagus can be found at this time of the year. It's a bit more expensive, but worth it for a dinner party!
  • Chocolate Macaroon Bundt Cake
    And to end the meal, this fabulous cake is perfect.
