How to Make smothered sausage and meatballs

Step-by-Step

  1. first mix all ingredients for the meat balls together. you can make these a head and freeze them so all you have to do is either cook them up or heat them up if you cook then freeze. don't make the meat balls too large you want them about the same size as the sausage circles. place both the sausage and meatballs into a well oiled deep dish oven safe frying pan( i use a cast iron one so it can go straight to the oven at 400degrees for 30 mins)
  2. in a medium sauce pot you will need to mix both the beef broth and cream of chicken soup together stirring constantly to get any lumps out. do not add anything to your soup/stock as the flavor is full enough. in a measuring cup blend the Bisquick and water then slowly add it to the soup/stock insuring no lumps will form. you want it smooth not to thick or pastie
  3. in a large glass mixing bowl blend together water,butter,seasonings and rice mixing well. cook according to directions on box. about 5min for white rice, 10 for brown.
  4. cook vegetables according to your taste. have fun with this. there is no wrong vegetable if your family will eat them. my husband prefers green beans so that is what i used at the time.
  5. once your meatballs and sausage circles are completely cooked but not over cooked. you will need to remove them to a clean bowl to drain away any of the excess fat drippings. we don't need to use any of these. now I coat the meatballs and sausage with the gravy before i place over the rice on the plates but you can dish it up any way you like. don't like a lot of gravy then just spoon some over the meat and rice.
