Gluten-Free Swedish Meatballs Recipe


  • 2 pounds grass-fed ground beef
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1 organic egg yolk
  • ¼ cup almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ¼ large onion, grated
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup organic chicken broth


  1. Mix all ingredients (except for broth) and shape into 1″ balls. Fry in batches in a non-toxic skillet until almost cooked through.
  2. After all the batches are browned, transfer all the meatballs back into the skillet.
  3. Add 1 cup (or more if desired) organic chicken broth. Finish cooking and serve warm.
  4. To freeze your Swedish meatballs, line a large Ziplock bag with parchment paper and place meatballs inside.
  5. To reheat, let thaw slightly and transfer to a skillet to reheat. You can add additional organic stock if it is not “saucy” enough or to keep the meatballs from drying out.
