Menu Board Monday Edition #8-- Raised Meatballs

As you know, I've been busy moving and trying to get settled into the new house for the last couple weeks.  Of course, this meant that I didn't have internet for a few days {I felt so alone} and was unable to make a post for Menu Board Monday last night... I guess technically it's not late, since it is Monday, but I do like having it posted Sunday night so you all have it by Monday.  With moving comes lots of boxes & so much unorganization! Needless to say, we're not having real MEALS around here just yet, so I thought I'd use this opportunity to go back thru some of my favorite recipes and share one with you! This is a post I did well over a year ago, meaning alot of you weren't around to see it! So, here it is! Not only is it affordable, but simple and so YUMMY! I hope you and your families enjoy it:)

Happy Cooking!

It is sooo cold outside so it's time for cozy comfort food! I enjoy making a good meal on a low budget. At my house, a good meal consists of meat and potatoes, and of course a veggie too! This meal is easy, tasty and fits perfectly into a tight budget.   This meal complete with mashed potatoes and corn, costs approximately $7.00 for the whole meal.

*Prepare to get your hands dirty!* :-)

Raised Meatballs
From Cupboard to Cupboard
printable recipe

First take 1 lb of thawed hamburger and break it up in a large mixing bowl... Tear apart 3 slices of bread into small pieces and add to hamburger. Then add 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 2 beaten eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1 teaspoon salt & 1/4 teaspoon pepper. You can also add minced onions if you would like.

Mix all of this well together and form into balls. I like to use a 1/2 cup ice cream scoop so that I have meatballs that are all the same size. I like to know that all of them will cook evenly! Place your meatballs in a greased 9x13 casserole dish.

In a small mixing bowl, mix together 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 can cream of mushroom soup and 1 cup milk. Mix well and pour over the meatballs.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours.

Remove the meatballs and place in a serving bowl and take the sauce and use it as your gravy for your mashed potatoes.

This should make approximately 6-8 meatballs and should serve 4 people.


Happy Cooking
