DIRECTIONS

  • Combine meats, bread, onion, parsley, egg, salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and the pinch of nutmeg in medium bowl.
  • Shape mixture into 1 inch balls, wetting hands as needed will help.
  • Add half of the meatballs to lightly oiled or sprayed large skillet over medium heat. Cook until browned all over, about 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer meatballs to paper towel lined plate. Repeat until all meatballs are browned.
  • Add beef and chicken broth to skillet and stir to deglaze, getting all the browned bits from the pan bottom. Return meatballs to skillet.
  • Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer, 30 minutes.
  • In a small bowl combine water and cornstarch, stir well to make a slurry.
  • Add to meatballs and broth and bring to a gentle boil to thicken.
  • Add remaining pepper, grated lemon peel and thyme and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Serve over mashed potatoes, buttered noodles, or steamed white rice.
  • Makes 6 servings.
  • Note: If your family really likes gravy you may want to double the ingredients for gravy only.
