Am I right in noting that those meatballs are not browned before putting in the pan? Shirley

Hi Shirley…You are correct…These meatballs are not browned before you bake them. Just put the raw meatballs in the 9×13 and pour barbeque sauce over all. If it has been frozen, thaw as much as possible, then allow a little extra baking time to be sure that the meatballs are done. Enjoy! Hope your Swedish Meatballs were yummy too! Vicki
