Meatballs 'n Gravy

This is just good old comfort food! I started doing this over 30 years ago, because Hubby loves gravy, and he devours meatballs!

How to Make Meatballs 'n Gravy


  1. I start by mixing together the ingredients for the meatballs in a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate, while preparing the gravy.
  2. Now for the gravy.
    In a sauce pan, melt the butter. Add the flour and mix well.
    Gradually add the stock, stirring so there are no lumps.
    Add the seasonings of your choice.
    Over medium heat, bring to a boil, continue stirring.
    Cook for about 5 minutes until gravy thickens.
    Remove the gravy from heat, cover and set aside.
  3. Back to the meatballs.
    Form meat mixture into small balls, (I use a small scoop.) and brown in a skillet.
  4. When all the meatballs are cooked, drain and place them in a casserole dish, or you can use your slow cooker.
    Pour the heated gravy over the cooked meatballs.
    Cover the casserole dish and place in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve, or at least 30 minutes.
  5. While the meatballs 'n gravy are in the oven, this gives you time to prepare the wild rice.
    We just love the Meatballs 'n Gravy served over rice!
    It's good over egg noodles too!
