Mushroom Meatballs

Recipe by MarieRynr

These delicious meatballs were favorites of my kids when they were growing up. Simple and tasty they made good use of what was usually in my larder. "Cheap and Cheerful", they were economical as well.

Mom made this when I was a kid - I loved it then, and I love it now. Simple with very flavorful results.
