I love an easy appetizer and these 3 Ingredient Swedish Meatballs are seriously the easiest recipe ever. Not only are they simple, they are SO delicious and are always the first thing to disappear at a party.
Ingredients for 3 Ingredient Swedish Meatballs:
This is the shortest ingredient list you could ask for. Here’s what you need:
If you aren’t able to find cream of mushroom soup, you can substitute cream of chicken. I don’t think it’s quite as yummy but it’s still really good.
And let me tell you, I don’t even like mushrooms. So that’s saying something.
I use the homestyle frozen meatballs for this recipe to keep the flavors simple.
How to Make 3 Ingredient Swedish Meatballs
All you need to do is mix together the sour cream and cream of mushroom soup in the base of your slow cooker. Toss in the meatballs and stir to coat.
Set the slow cooker and that’s it. Stir every 30 minutes or so to ensure the sauce doesn’t burn. A few hours later and you’re ready for a party.
The sauce sticks and hardens to the side of the slow cooker which makes it pretty hard to clean. You may want to use a slow cooker liner.
Perfect for Parties
These meatballs are so simple and sometimes that makes people unsure about a recipe. I promise they are always so popular at parties and gatherings.
When guests find out how easy they are, they get even more excited. Everybody loves simple party food.
They are great as an appetizer or served over noodles or rice for a main dish.
