Are you looking for a great twist on an old favorite? Salisbury Steak and Gravy Meatballs is comfort food at it’s finest. This recipe is sure to be a family favorite.
This recipes comes from one of my best friends, Amanda. I giggle when I make this recipe because it reminds me of a time in high school when she and I tried to make meatloaf by ourselves for the first time. Amanda’s parents are grain farmers and during the spring and fall they would be busy in the field. Amanda and I both loved to cook so Amanda’s mom would often set us out what she was thinking and we would go from there whipping up dinner. This particular night Meatloaf was on the menu but we couldn’t find the recipe. So we decided to wing it. I knew my mom used these certain ingredients and she knew her mom used those types of ingredients so we added a little of this, a pinch of that and mixed it all together. We were just getting ready to pop it in the oven and the recipe appeared! We realized we left out a particular ingredient, I honestly can’t even remember what it was but we had already created this beautiful meatloaf ring so we decided to just poke holes in and add the missing link. Needless to say there were lots of giggles and a little crossing our fingers that it would turn out!
Fast forward an hour or so and it was time to eat! Everyone was raving over the meatloaf and wanted to know what our secret was. We both couldn’t stop laughing! At that point we couldn’t even remember what we put in it! Our secret is out!

This recipe can also be made into patties if you prefer or don’t want to take the time to make the meatballs. If you are in a pinch you could even use store bought meatballs. Or what I do is make a double or triple patch of the meatballs and freeze them for later. I then pull them out, pour the gravy over and pop them in the oven.
