The Recipe Blog: Aunt Bessie Meatballs

I found this recipe at Favorite Family Recipes. It was simple and very tasty. I actually thought it tasted like a foil dinner in meatball form. They’re moist and have great flavor. I tried to think of another name for them, but couldn’t. So we’ll stick with the original. 🙂 My family really liked them and we’ll be adding this dish to our favorites list. I don’t normally post recipes I’ve found from other blogger sites because I don’t want to recipe poach. But we really enjoyed this family friendly dish and I wanted to share it with all of you, too.

For the meatballs:
1lb hamburger, thawed
1 carrot, grated
1 large potato, shredded (raw)
Minced Onion (the recipe calls for chopped onions, but my family won’t touch onions)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 beaten egg
Add salt and pepper to taste

For the gravy/sauce:
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1 can milk

Mix all the ingredients for the meatballs. Shape into balls and brown in a pan with a small amount of oil. I had to make sure I turned them carefully so they didn’t fall apart. They stay together pretty good, but I found that you couldn’t just stir them around to keep them browning on all sides. Once they’re sufficiently browned, put in a casserole dish.
Pour sauce evenly over the meatballs.

Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350.
Serve over rice. Along with your preferred vegetable. Makes about 25 meatballs.
