Add: 1  1/2 lbs hamburger, salt and pepper to tastes and fresh chopped parsley. Mix into 1” balls and brown in a large fry pan.  When cooked, place in a casserole.

Now, you need:

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tin of mushrooms (not bits and pieces)reserve liquid
  • Saute this in same fry pan until the onions are transparent, then add:
  • 1 tin of water

  1. These meatballs are absolutely fantastic! Seasoned throughout, not just on the outside. We had them with mashed potatoes, but these savory morsels will go well with egg noodles or rice. Definitely tasty enough to stand as a main course! Easy to do and worth it!


  2. I made these for a family get together. They tasted great and were easy to make. The meatballs were very tender and tasty. I made enough to have leftovers for the next day. Everyone was happy about that.

  3. This is a great recipe. I made them with ground Bison and served them to company with noodles. They were a hit.

  4. Very well written information. It will be useful to anybody who usess it, as well as yours truly :). Keep up the good work – can’t wait to read more posts. Very enjoyable.
