For nearly 2 years, these keto Swedish meatballs have been on my bucket list and I’m so glad to finally cross this off my list. To make it, I don’t know why it took me so long it’s so easy to make and compared to the Ikea version, it really tastes a million times better.

Plus, you can always store the uncooked meatballs in the freezer and make a huge batch of meatballs. You can just defrost these babies overnight when you have that meatball craving. So simple and easy!

And the sauce – you can’t forget about that heavenly gravy creamy, sauce that these Swedish meatballs are smothered in with the browned up meatball bits. And to the bottom of the pan, those meatball bits stuck really make the gravy what it is.

If you serve these over a bed of egg noodles just be sure to make a little bit extra, you’ll really want a portion to slurp down! These keto Swedish chicken meatballs are light and juicy, unlike some other chicken meatballs that can be hard and weird. And when you try slicing into them, they just fly around.
