The meatballs made according to the recipe were terrific. The sauce however was very bland. I do have to say that I could not find Tamari in my small town so I substituted soy sauce. However, I don't think this was the reason the sauce was so bland. I wound up adding a can of cream of mushroom soup, a total of about 1/4 cup of beef broth, about 2 TB soy sauce, approx 3/4 tsp garlic powder and black pepper. Oh I also used 2 full cups half and half and 3 Tb flour. After making those additions, my family raved over the sauce and my very picky daughter even had seconds and requested leftovers for her lunch the next day.

With changes, this was great! I added more nutmeg and added some garlic powder. I added more nutmeg to the meatball mixture, as well as the sauce. This took a while, but it was worth it. Thanks for posting! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag!

I really liked this recipe, but my husband said the gravy needed a little more spice and some mushrooms, which I will do next time.

These were soooo good. I served them over rice, added lots of parsley and enjoyed every morsel. Thank you for posting, KendraJean

Good recipe, fun to make. Took these to a book club night as an appetizer, and they went over well. Served using toothpicks, a little tricky but that made things interesting. Amazing what you can get away with when something tastes good. Followed recipe except for accumulating scrapings, which I didn't do as I used parchment paper. There wasn't anything to scrape since I used extra lean ground round. So I made the sauce in a saucepan and transfered everything to a crockpot to tote with me in the car. I yielded 45 meatballs. They did get some extra cook time in the crockpot while we were all sitting around, which didn't deter from the finished product at all.

These were really good. I used turkey instead of beef, and added a bunch of pepper to the sauce and served over egg noodles. We will be making again. Thank you!
