Meatballs & Gravy

This is one of my mom's recipes, and it's one of our favorites. It's one of mine and my husband's favorite Sunday meals.
Michael took this of his plate right before dinner. Not the best picture. As I'm sure you've noticed, we Howe girls are not pro food-photographers.

1 lb. hamburger
1 egg
bread crumbs
dehydrated or some minced onion
salt and pepper

2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 pkg. brown gravy mix 

In a bowl, combine raw hamburger, egg, some bread crumbs, and the onion. There are truly no measurments for the bread crumbs and onion. I would guess about 1/4 C. bread crumbs and 1/8 C. onion, but it is totally up to you and depends on how oniony you want it. Add salt and pepper.
Using your hands (it kind of grosses me out, but you can wash up afterwards :), mix the meat mixture together, roll into golf ball-sized balls, and drop onto a cookie sheet. 
Broil meat for 8-10 minutes, turn meatballs over, and broil for another 8-10 minutes. When the meatballs are browned, transfer them to a casserole dish (one that has a lid).

For the gravy, mix together soup and gravy packet. I like to add some milk to thin it a little bit. Pour gravy mixture over meatballs, and bake at 350* for about 30 minutes or until soup is bubbly.

Serve over mashed potatoes.

We really love this. Obviously. I wouldn't post something we didn't love.

Or, if you're me and don't like mashed potatoes, it's excellent over rice!

These meatballs are so good. I love them over rice better than potatoes. I am so excited that you girls are doing this blog. I know I will make many more meals from this blog.

I made this for dinner last night and it was delicious! I've been looking for a great meatball recipe that David would like (he doesn't like the sweet and sour/soy sauce taste) and this was it! Thank you!
