Swedish Meatballs

This post was sponsored by Casa di Bertacchi. Although I was compensated to develop these Swedish Meatballs, all opinions expressed are my own.

If you follow me on Instagram, you all probably know that I’ve been home very little these past few weeks. First I was off to Nashville for the Pillsbury Bake-off and just this last weekend, I was in Arizona visiting some friends as part of a girls trip long-weekend. This was my first legit ‘only Mom’ vacation in the last 7 years and I’m not gonna lie….it was pretty awesome 🙂 Yes, I love my kids and their sticky fingers and their noise and chaos that they bring to my everyday life, but sometimes a girl needs a break.

I packed workout clothes. #didntusethem

I ate ridiculous amounts of cupcakes. #oppositeofworkingout

And, I shopped so much that I had to buy an extra suitcase to bring all of it home!! Hobby Lobby made me do it. {Just kidding, Gord!} #notreally

Me trucking two large suitcases through the airport was REALLY the highlight of my trip. Well, that and my friend Claudia dancing through the airport terminal as I recorded her the whole time without her knowing. I’m such a good friend.

Anyways, something I’ve learned from my friends this weekend, besides wanting to go home and organize my whole life, is when it comes to meal prep, we should work smarter, not harder.

Enter these frozen meatballs.

The Casa di Bertacchi brand of meatballs is a relatively new one to me, but I’m glad I got the opportunity to try them out and enjoy! You can buy a 6-pound bag of fully cooked and frozen meatballs from Sam’s Club, keep them in your freezer and use them as needed in so many different recipes. It’s such a time saver and they taste great. Especially perfect around the holidays. Me and bulk food stores become BFF’s for November and December. If you’re a sample junkie like me, be sure to head over to Sam’s Club December 20th, 21st or 27th to try these yourself!

Swedish Meatballs

A few weeks ago for dinner, I tried these meatballs in this Swedish Meatball recipe and my whole family gobbled them up! It’s recipes like these that make my world go round. I love a fast recipe my whole family will love.

To make them, you just make a quick roux sauce, add in a little sour cream and the meatballs and heat thoroughly. Serve it over egg noodles, rice or potatoes.  Give it a whirl and let me know what you think 🙂
