step-by-step directions We've Made Cooking As Easy As 1-2-3! printer friendly version 
  • 1
    Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • 2
    Olive Oil
    1 small Yellow Onion (minced)
    2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
    Kosher Salt
    Place a sauté pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot add the Olive Oil along with the Onions and Garlic with a pinch of Salt. Cook, stirring occasionally until the Onions are softened and starting to brown slightly. Pour in to a large mixing bowl and cool slightly.
  • 3
    2 cups Bread (very finely diced)
    1/2 cup Milk
    While the Onions are cooling, pour the Milk over the diced Bread to soak.
  • 4
    1 pound Ground Chuck
    1 pound Ground Pork
    Milk Soaked Bread (rung out and liquid discarded)
    1/2 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
    1 teaspoon Freshly Grated Nutmeg
    3/4 teaspoon Allspice
    2 large Eggs (slightly beaten)
    Freshly Ground Black Pepper
    1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
    After the Onions have cooled, add both Ground Meats, the Milk Soaked Bread (ring out first and discard liquid), the Panko, Nutmeg, Allspice and Eggs. Season with some Freshly Ground Black Pepper and about 1.5 teaspoons of Salt. Mix thoroughly then form in to mini meatballs using a small cookie scoop or by rounded tablespoon.
  • 5
    Nonstick Spray
    Line a baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with Nonstick Cooking Spray. Place the meatballs on the foil lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown and mostly cooked through.
  • 6
    3 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
    1/3 cup Flour
    3 cup Low-Sodium Beef Broth
    Salt
    Freshly Ground Black Pepper
    Worcestershire (to taste)
    1/4 cup Sour Cream
    In the meantime, make your gravy: Place a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and add the Butter. When the Butter had melted, whisk in the Flour. Slowly whisk in the Beef Stock, making sure to smooth out any lumps. Bring the liquid to a gentle boil then reduce it to a simmer, cooking for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper and a good amount of Worcestershire Sauce then whisk in the Sour Cream. Give it a taste here, adding more Worcestershire and Sour Cream to your liking.
  • 7
    When your meatballs come out of the oven, add then to the gravy and let everything heat and reduce together for a minute or two.
  • 8
    If serving as an appetizer, use toothpicks to pick them up.
  • 9
    If serving as an entrée, make the meatballs larger and serve with Egg Noodles and Parsley.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Use an ice cream scoop to easily scoop the meatballs onto the tray
    2. When adding the sour cream, keep the gravy just below a simmer to thicken the sauce.
