Fast Balls ~ Only 4 Ingredients

Yummy meatballs in a savory brown sauce.
Only 4 ingredients!
It's another easy dinners for your repertoire.
If it's quarter to six and you still haven't decided
what to do with that pound of hamburger this one
is going to feed your peeps and make them happy.
This is another gem from Peg Bracken's 
"I Hate To Cook" book. It's in 
her chapter Last-Minute Suppers 
(or this is the story of your life). 
 Only 4 ingredients and you already have them. 
Here's what you do.
Mix the meatball ingredients; ground chuck, 
breadcrumbs and milk. That's it! I used 
seasoned crumbs because that's what I had open.
Don't be tempted (I was, but resisted) to add 
any other seasonings. You'll get plenty of flavor
from the onion soup gravy. Roll them into balls.
I got 24 meatballs. 
Brown them in a large skillet in 1-2 T butter, 
turning gently to brown both sides.
Sprinkle the onion soup over the browned balls.
Add the 1 C water and mix around gently so you
don't break the meatballs. Simmer on low while 
you make rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes. 
I had leftover (planned ahead) mashed potatoes
from earlier in the week. Then I just microwaved
some frozen peas and we had a homey
comfort-food dinner that was so easy.

~ FAST BALLS ~
1 lb. hamburger
1/2 C seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 C milk
Mix up and shape it into small balls.
Brown them in butter.
Next, stir in
1 package onion-soup mix
1 C water
Mix it around gently so you don't break
the meatballs. Simmer while you cook the
rice, noodles or mashed potatoes.

Enjoy!
