Either way, the delicious gravy will enhance their flavor and is wonderful when served over hot egg noodles, or boiled or mashed potatoes. It even makes an absolutely out of this world meatball grinder! :)

  1. Hi,
    If I am using frozen meatballs, do they need to be cooked/baked first or can I throw them in the crock pot frozen with the other ingredients?

  2. I had frozen meatballs and thought of making Swedish Meatballs. My coworker suggested this website because she religiously makes recipes from it and loves them all. This recipe was SO simple and SO delicious! I was a little skeptical when the recipe called for Alfredo sauce, but the ingredients really blended well together! New family favorite!! ❤️5 stars

  3. You didn’t say if the meatballs are cooked before going in the crockpot … Thank – you!
