I started making this when I was a teenager. A long standing family favorite.

I grew up with this same recipe. We call it Meatballs and Mushroom gravy and it is now my 15 year old daughters favorite dish. I make the meatballs a little different ; my Mom never had a specific recipe. I just use hamburger, add about 1/2 -1 onion , grate some sourdough french bread usually 1 large slice and add 1 egg to 1 2/2 -2 lbs of hamburger .To make it easy, I put the meatballs in a baking dish in the oven .Also I add some milk or half and half to the soup to make the sauce and server over wide egg noodles. Very good!
