Tinfoil Chef: "Swedish Meatballs"
Welcome again to "Tinfoil Chef " where I'd like to feature healthy recipes for square meals on meager pockets.

Spaghetti and Meatballs is always a cheap favorite for many families, but sometimes I get a little tired of sauce and have a hankering for something different. This recipe does the trick!

-1 14oz can beef gravy
-1/4 can water
-1/4 cup sour cream
-1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp pepper
-1 6.5oz can sliced mushrooms
-1 lb frozen fully cooked meatballs
-1 (8-ounce) package wide egg noodles

Set your Crockpot on low and toss in can of beef gravy, 1/4 can of water, 1/4 cup of sour cream, 1 TBS Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Stir well until fully blended.

Next drain the can of sliced mushrooms and toss them in with 1 lb of frozen fully cooked meatballs. Put lid on Crockpot and go away for 3-4 hours.

Right before supper, boil the wide egg noodles on the stove top according to directions and drain. Serve meatballs on each plate over a bed of egg noodles and top off with your choice of a veggie side. Serves: 5-6

Total Cost: $5.06 approximately .83 cents a person.
Prep Time: 5 minutes and 15 minutes for final dinner prep.

    yes i'm spanish. i was born in Nicaragua and left when i was 8 because of the issues with the war(Sandinistas) ...my family was very much in the goverment of Somoza and as you can imagine, our lifes were threatened..we moved to Miami and then 2 months before my 16 bday, to Canada..

    about my misspelling: there are lots and lots, lol..i love spellcheck and don't use it as often as i should..and besides some of my grammar and words can't be helped..that is just my brain, lol and so far, there is no programme for that ;p..he, he..

    Margie... yummy! Just a question: the 3-4 hours... on high? I like to put things on in the morning and cook them on low so supper's ready when we come in from our job. That would work, right?

    Judy, I would say "Low" for that long. And if your crockpot has a tendency to evaporate water easy - add an extra 1/4 cup of water.

    My MIL law used to make this on the stovetop and that was okay too. She also made her own meatballs with "Nutmeg" sprinkled in.

    My son is really into Stouffers Swedish Meatballs. It might freak him out if I actually make something from scratch. But maybe I'll try it this weekend! It might be like the time I made waffles in my new waffle iron, and when he (my son) saw them he said "I want REAL waffles!" The "real" waffles he was talking about? Eggos!

    Worcestershire sauce works in almost anything, even cereal.
