Swedish meatballs are a popular dish at parties and weddings. These were made by me and served at my wedding.


  • Meatballs
  • 4 lbs ground beef
  • 2 lbs ground pork
  • 6 slices of stale bread soaked in milk
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • Garlic salt to taste
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped fine
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped fine
  • 2 medium onions, chopped fine
  • 4 stalks celery, chopped fine
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • Sauce
  • 1 (6 oz) can V-8 juice
  • 1/2 cup Jack Miller Bar-b-que sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups water


Step 1

For Meatballs: Combine all ingredients and roll into bite-size balls. The less you work the meat, the better the texture and taste will be.

Step 2

Fry in hot oil until brown or bake in oven at 400 degrees in a pan or cookie sheet with a lip for 20 minutes or until brown. Makes 400 to 450 meatballs.

Step 3

For Sauce: Cook the tomato sauce until thick. Add the V-8 juice, the bar-b-que sauce and the water (alternatively use 2 cans mushroom soup and 2 measured cans of barbeque sauce). Bring the sauce to a boil and add the meatballs. Lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
