Guilt-free Swedish Meatballs, I made them low in calories and are delicious and tastes just like the authentic Swedish meatball recipe. There are many dishes that we crave for, but they are rich in calories. Today you will get to eat your favorite dish and not feel bad about it!
Eggs and heavy cream usually added to Swedish meatballs, and of course a lot of butter. There are no eggs in this recipe nor heavy cream, and I have used one tablespoon of butter.
I promise that you will enjoy every bite, the meatballs are juicy and flavorful, I have baked the meatballs instead of frying them, and that contributed to fewer calories.
How to make juicy meatballs?
There are two stars in this recipe, the meatballs, and the sauce. The secret for juicy and delicious meatballs are not to over bake the meatballs and to use less seasoning. The ingredients I’ve added in the meatballs makes it juicy and perfectly seasoned. The olive oil and milk make the beef bake without getting dry from the inside.
The onion and black pepper give a great flavor to the Swedish meatballs. The olive oil also replaces the eggs.
How to make the Swedish Meatballs sauce?
I know that beef stock is used in making Swedish meatball sauce, but I like to add chicken bouillon instead since that’s what I use at home and I like the flavor. But if you prefer using beef stock, then replace the water in the recipe with beef stock. Instead of heavy cream, I have used whole milk. I couldn’t notice any change in the flavor and the sauce was creamy and outstanding. If you dislike parsley, you can add Italian seasoning.
Can we make the meatballs ahead of time?
You can bake the meatballs and store them in an airtight container before refrigerating them. But the sauce has to be made before serving; this sauce tastes better when served immediately after cooking it.
