Meatballs in Brown Gravy

14 Nov

This is a basic meatball recipe that can be used in a dish like this one, or in spaghetti and meatballs, or with a glaze for party meatballs.  Meatballs are not hard to make and with the addition of a couple of jars of brown gravy (there’s no shame in that!) it’s a pretty quick fix.


2 lbs. lean ground beef

2 eggs

1/2-3/4  cup bread crumbs

1/4 cup milk

garlic salt

black pepper

1 pkg. wide egg noodles (or pasta of choice)

1-2 jars of brown gravy (I used 2 jars for this recipe, for fewer meatballs, use 1)

Combine first six ingredients and stir with spoon until well blended. 

Shape into meatballs and place on rack over a pan to collect drippings.  A broiler pan lined with foil works well and makes clean up very easy.

Place meat balls in a 350 degree oven and bake for about 30 minutes.  Test for doneness with a meat thermometer if you’re unsure. 

Remove meatballs from rack and place in a sauce pan.  Pour the jars of gravy over the meatballs and heat to serving temperature, stirring to coat meatballs. 

Serve over cooked egg noodles.
