Meatballs With Gravy

"These are really tasty meatballs! The gravy is super easy and would be great with mashed potatoes. As usual I use venison. I think this would be a good recipe for OAMC-to make the meatballs ahead and freeze until needed."

  1. This is a very easy recipe that taste real nice. The meat was very loose and hard to work into a BALL so maybe I will cut down on the milk, but all in all, I will make it again because we really enjoyed it as something different. Nice flavors, thanks for this one. It is a keeper


I'm a stay at home mom with 3 adorable children-an 8 year old daredevil son, a 5 1/2 year old princess and a wild little 2 year old girl! I love to cook, and like having my little helpers in the kitchen! I usually love recipes that are completely from scratch (I still love them actually) but right now my focus is on having any kind of food ready by mealtime! It's a little crazy here lately. Every summer we have a huge organic garden, apple orchard and raspberry and blueberry patches, along with a woods full of wild foods waiting for me to learn what they are so I can collect them. I'm learning about wild mushrooms first, so if anyone has any tips, let me know. We also eat wild venison which my husband and I hunt ourselves. It's our favorite meat, since it's lean, organic and cheap! Some of my hobbies are: hiking, biking, rock climbing, gardening, playing in the water with my kids, or just swinging in the hammock with a good book. I go stir crazy if I spend too much time inside.
